You're never going to hear a program complain about making it to a bowl game, especially when it allows for several more weeks of practice. But let's face it, some schools get a serious advantage by playing their season finale close to home, while others are traveling far enough away to call their trips "extended vacations."
In any case, visiting new places and interacting with fans from a different part of the country can be fun and beneficial to programs attempting to grow their brand.
This bowl season, we'll see a pair of teams traveling far across the ocean, several others making cross-country trips and finally, a national championship game featuring two schools playing farther away from home than at any point during the regular season.
Of course, there are also some teams who may choose to walk down the street to their respective bowl games.
Let's take a look at the five teams traveling the farthest during bowl season as well as the five that are staying closest to home.
