Happy new year! This worked pretty well the last time we did it, so we're going to make this our New Year's Day game day open comment thread. Although there will be nine bowl games left after today and there will be as many bowl games played on January 2 as on January 1, today is the traditional day for major college football bowls, and the lineup is as follows:
- 11:00 a.m.: Outback Bowl (Auburn Tigers v. Northwestern Wildcats)
- 1:00 p.m.: Capital One Bowl (LSU Tigers v. Penn St. Nittany Lions)
- 1:00 p.m.: Gator Bowl (Florida St. Seminoles v. West Virginia Mountaineers)
- 4:30 p.m.: Rose Bowl (Ohio St. Buckeyes v. Oregon Ducks)
- 8:30 p.m.: Sugar Bowl (Cincinnati Bearcats v. Florida Gators)
Feel free to share your thoughts, reactions, new year's resolutions, and predictions in the comments below.
