As 2013 fades and 2014 rapidly approaches, it's college football bowl time, again.
As 2013 fades and 2014 rapidly approaches, it's college football bowl time, again. But, the 2013 season ends with a twist, as the Bowl College Series (BCS) system comes to an end in favor of a national playoff system that will likely bring its own debate as much as the BCS which started the progression in 1998 to a true national championship in college football. The BCS has produced national championship pairings of No. 1 and No. 2 in 16 of 16 years, according to the system's website. That remains true for the Jan. 6 clash between No. 1 Florida State and No. 2 Auburn. So, for the die-hard college football fan, here it is; the complete college bowl lineup. Enjoy.
