Holiday season is no time for the Pac-12's bowl participants to take a breather—their work is just beginning.
Six of the conference's record nine bowl teams play between Christmas and New Year's Day, including Pac-12 champion Stanford in the 100th installment of the Rose Bowl.
The Cardinal's date with Big Ten champion Michigan State is one five matchups against BCS conference competition. The Pac-12 faces the ACC twice (Arizona vs. Boston College, UCLA vs. Virginia Tech), the Big 12 twice (Arizona State vs. Texas Tech, Oregon vs. Texas) and the Big Ten once.
