The 2012 regular season has come to a close, and all the conference championships have been played. As the bowl season starts, there will be many great matchups for everyone to see over the next few weeks.
While some matchups are less interesting than others, some of the smaller bowls end up having the most entertainment value.
As we roll through the list of bowls, we will rank them in order of best matchup. Some will be for historical reasons, while others will rank highly because of how "watchable" the game will be. After all, blowouts are not nearly as entertaining as a game that takes all 60 minutes to decide. (Or more, if it goes to overtime.)
