Bowl of season! Reasons to watch all 39 games and who wins – Associated Press

A moment of silence for Wyoming, Southern Miss, Miami (Ohio) and Louisiana-Monroe.

These four teams reached the eligibility, but there were no postseason games available. Do not dare say there are too many bowls. Not when the Cowboys, Golden Eagles, Red Hawks and Warhawks have been left out. No free fossil watches that you can give away again. No go-kart racing after practice.

The fun starts for those who have come to the postseason – and those who can watch it – on Saturday with five FBS pool games and routes to New Year's Day. The national championship of the College Football Playoff will be decided on January 7, but it somehow feels like we know who's in it.

It goes fast. Take time to enjoy each bowl and watch them all. Do it for the Cowboys, Golden Eagles, RedHawks and Warhawks.
