Sure, it might be difficult to get pumped up for the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, the Beef 'O' Brady's St. Petersburg Bowl or the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl—anyone suddenly hungry?—but consider this: once bowl season starts on Dec. 21, there will be 35 games over a span of 17 days, culminating with the 2014 VIZIO BCS National Championship on Jan. 6. 

Oh, and that will also mark the official end of the BCS, which is the best present anyone could ever hope for.

2014 VIZIO BCS National Championship: Florida State vs. Auburn

Kevin Liles-USA TODAY Sports

Not only did Michigan State and Auburn's wins on Saturday assure an eighth straight national championship featuring an SEC team, but those wins also cemented an absurd fifth straight title game with a school from the state of Alabama. 

Auburn is the national darling. A year after the school went 3-9 in its worst season since 1952, Gus Malzahn has resurrected the program, winning 12 games, several of which have come via the instant-classic, last-moment-possible heroics. 

You'll probably hear the word "destiny" a lot when people talk about the Tigers.

Of course, Florida State's story isn't all that boring, either. 

Led by freshman Jameis Winston, the frontrunner for the Heisman, the Seminoles are 13-0 and have embarrassed opponents by an average of 42.3 points per game. Jimbo Fisher's squad is about as explosive as it gets. 

The last two national title games have turned out to be snooze-fests, but this one, featuring two teams that combined for 104 points in their conference championships, is stooped in entertainment value.

If you're a fan of offense, then you're a fan of this game. 

The Tigers average 37.8 points per game behind the dynamic duo of Tajh Boyd and Sammy Watkins, while the Buckeyes put 43.8 per contest on the board thanks to a dominant run game featuring dual-threat QB Braxton Miller and RB Carlos Hyde. 

There may be potential for a letdown from the Buckeyes, who are undoubtedly disappointed not to be in the title game, but Urban Meyer should have his team ready to go.

This one has the makings for fireworks. 

 

Rose Bowl: Stanford vs. Michigan State

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Common fans probably won't be too tantalized by this matchup, but fans of hard-nosed, physical defenses will enjoy this one wholeheartedly. 

What will be the best BCS game outside the national championship?

Stanford is giving up 18.6 points per game and 4.6 yards per play, and Michigan State allows just 12.3 and 3.8, respectively. 

Throw in both teams having weapons on the offensive side of the ball—Tyler Gaffney, Ty Montgomery, Jeremy Langford—and this is easily one of the most compelling bowls on the slate.
