The last week of college football always brings varying emotions from fans. On the one hand, the 14-week regular season that's played with playoff intensity every week finally culminates, meaning the action-packed, 12-hour football Saturdays will have to wait until next fall.
But on the flip side, it brings us to one of the best two-week stretches of the year: bowl season. It's a fantastic opportunity to end the year on a positive note, build some momentum heading into next year's campaign and give your school and conference some bragging rights (and who amongst us doesn't love talking a little trash when it comes to college football?).
There are still 19 D-I games on tap for this week, so the projections are still murky at best. If South Carolina upsets Auburn, Oregon State upends rival Oregon or even South Florida beats Connecticut, it will only throw another curveball in what has been a wild 13 weeks, and completely shake up the bowl selection process.
But as of right now, we have a pretty good idea of who will play in most bowl games. So let's take a look at each potential BCS game and rank them in terms of appeal and national interest, and throw in a couple more "can't miss" games as well.
