College Football: Bowl Predictions and Rankings From Worst To Best

College Bowl Games were designed as a clever source of advertising the comforts and delights of selected areas of the nation during the dreary days of winter.

Used as a reward for a local team, as in the case of the California based Rose Bowl, the extending of the invitation to the challenger demanded a more methodical process in determining what opponent fit the needs of the sponsors and local hospitality industry.

The decade of the 1930s saw the U.S. economy dulled by the Great Depression, and the stunning arrival of several bowl games who are still with us nearly 80 years later.

Chief among these the Sun Bowl, Sugar Bowl, Cotton Bowl and Orange Bowl.

Today we find 35 postseason events, commonly known as "The Bowls", and their homes range from Hawaii to New York City.  

Here we provide a review of each bowl game for the 2010 season, complete with a ranking of the overall attractiveness based upon this year's participants, the location of the game, and the historical respect of that specific bowl community toward their guests. 

All readers are invited to an open competition of chance by competing against the writer and the readers in predicting the winners and losers of all 35 bowl games.

Details concerning the how and why will be found in the following pages.
