The college football regular season has quickly come to a close and it is time for the bowl games to officially begin.
The bowl schedule has been announced and there are plenty of matchups that should keep the college football world occupied for the next month.

With a total of 35 bowl games, we can certainly find a few games that standout besides those. In fact, with teams such as Louisville and Northern Illinois taking up two of the BCS games, the non-BCS bowls are looking better than ever.
With bowl season set to kick off in a couple of weeks, here are some of the best bowl games that will be more exciting than some of the BCS matchups.
