What to watch in bowl games this week!

Oh yes, after a day of the NFL, college football returns today with the Miami Beach Bowl. It’s going to be an afternoon game, though, so you may or may not be able to watch it.

There are also other games on this week as we get into the swing of Bowl Season. Here are each game and some words on whether or not they’re worth watching for a reason other than “it’s football and the season is almost over!” At the end there’s a table that gives exact times, channels, etc.

Miami Beach Bowl: Central Michigan vs Tulsa. The Chippewas had a decent season with their victory (or maybe not) over Oklahoma State. Tulsa, meanwhile, runs an offense similar to Auburn’s. I don’t know about you, but I love watching wide open football.

Boca Raton Bowl: Memphis vs Western Kentucky. Memphis is another team that runs an offense similar to Auburn’s. WKU, meanwhile, is an air raid team whose coach is off to Purdue. Prediction: Points will be scored.

San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl: BYU vs Wyoming. Wyoming is actually pretty good? That’s the only thing I can think of for this one. Craig Bohl - formerly of North Dakota State - is the Cowboys head coach and he's starting to get things going in Laramie.

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl: Idaho vs Colorado State. Idaho - coached by Bobby Petrino’s brother - made it to a bowl game. That's impressive enough to make you want to watch it. Plus, it’s likely to be their last bowl game before dropping back down to FCS after next season.
