Other than the delightful annual Army vs. Navy game, we have not seen a clash of college football teams on the gridiron in over a week.

In this list you will find predictions, analysis and projections for each of the bowl games played from December 15 through December 22.
As mentioned, they aren't the best bowl games on tap this season, but beggars can't be choosers, and there are actually some entertaining storylines for which to watch in these early bowl season matchups.
