New Year's Day is no longer the biggest day in college football, but it is still pretty important. Aside from two BCS bowl games, there are four other postseason matchups taking place. Four teams ranked in the Top 25 are in action.

The earlier New Year's Day games have a distinct SEC vs. Big Ten feel.

To begin things, the No. 22-ranked Georgia Bulldogs take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl at EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. The Bulldogs defeated Nebraska, 45-31, in the Capital One Bowl last season.

However, Nebraska will be seeking a big one for its college football program, as ESPN Stats & Info highlights:

Nebraska is playing in its 50th bowl game all-time and looking for its 25th bowl win.

Later in the day, business really picks up.

In another SEC vs. Big Ten game, the No. 16-ranked LSU Tigers will face the Iowa Hawkeyes in the Outback Bowl at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay, Fla.

Tigers head coach Les Miles has his focus set on Iowa's linebackers in this matchup:

In the third and final SEC vs. Big Ten tilt, the No. 9-ranked South Carolina Gamecocks play the 19th-ranked Wisconsin Badgers in the Capital One Bowl. The game takes place in the Florida Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla. and could be the final college football game for Gamecocks star Jadeveon Clowney.

On Wednesday evening, the BCS games begin. The No. 5-ranked Michigan State Spartans will face the No. 4-ranked Stanford Cardinal in the 100th Rose Bowl from Pasadena, Calif.

In the final game of the evening, the No. 15-ranked UCF Knights will try to pull the major upset in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. The Knights take on the No. 6-ranked Baylor Bears at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

This one could be one of the biggest blowouts of the bowl season. Baylor and its top-ranked offense look to have far too much firepower for the Knights—on paper at least. We'll have to see how things shake out when the two teams are between the lines.
