The bowl season is upon us, and the matchups have been announced. Fans are up in arms over the latest controversy regarding the LSU-vs.-Alabama rematch in the BCS National Championship game. Fan message boards are aflutter with comments and opinions on which teams were robbed, which conference gets the most media love and how Team A is going to absolutely destroy Team B come Date X in late December or early January.
There are multiple compelling bowl games on the horizon, but let’s take a minute to speculate on possible contests that didn't make the cut due to conference invitation rules, ticket sale politics or win/loss differentials during the season.
I’m not presuming that these options would be better than the existing bowl arrangements, but I do think they would all be more entertaining than the currently slated national championship game.
