The college football bowl schedule 2010 has seen two tripleheaders so far. But today, the college football bowl schedule 2010 has its busiest day yet, with four games taking place. Of course, things will get even more crowded in the next two days, with four more showdowns tomorrow, and the annual New Years Day rush on Saturday. By the time the next few days are over, the postseason will be more than halfway done as well. Therefore, today’s college football bowl schedule is another stepping stone towards the end.
The action starts earlier than usual, with the first game taking place at noon est. The Armed Forces Bowl pits two teams that aren’t used to being here lately, as Army takes on SMU. The Black Knights are in their first postseason game in over a decade, while this is the second straight for SMU – but their second ever since the death penalty.
Afterwards, the college football bowl schedule 2010 heads to a new location, as the new Yankee Stadium holds its second game of the year. After hosting Notre Dame vs Army last month, Yankee Stadium will feature the Pinstripe Bowl between Kansas State and Syracuse at 3:20 pm. Fortunately, it takes place a full four days after New York was hit with a blizzard.
Weather won’t be a problem with the Music City Bowl, at 6:40 pm. Tennessee will play in their home state, as they take on visiting North Carolina. The Volunteers rallied from a poor start to get here, while the Tar Heels survived suspending several stars for NCAA violations.
Finally, the college football bowl schedule 2010 closes for the night, with one of the most prestigious pre New Years games. However, the Holiday Bowl isn’t expected to be much of a contest this year, as Big 12 runner up Nebraska faces 6-6 Washington at 10 pm. The Cornhuskers already slaughtered the Huskies in Washington months ago, yet they had little choice but to pair them up again.
The first of two straight quadruple headers comes after a day in which Maryland, Illinois and Oklahoma State got blowout wins. After a few thrillers earlier this week, it seemed like the bowls were starting to become tighter, but yesterday disproved that for the moment.
However, fans only need to get through two more days of the college football bowl schedule 2010, before the 2011 games start. At that point, the BCS will finally be ready to go, although the big final game is still more than 10 days away.
Today’s slate has a few teams that haven’t been this far in a while, another showcase for Yankee Stadium, and a potential top draft pick in Washington’s Jake Locker. All the action on the college football bowl schedule remains on ESPN, which will be airing games for over 12 hours straight.
