I've watched bits and pieces of all the bowls this season to this point, and just a few were exciting enough to make me watch the game in its entirety including the best bowl so far, the hard-hitting Liberty Bowl in which Oklahoma State upset 19th ranked SEC member, Missouri, 38-33, and in second place, the Military Bowl where Cincinnati beat Virginia Tech, 35-31.

UW plays tomorrow, but the best Pac-12 game so far was WSU's and mustachioed QB Gardner Minshew's 28-26 victory over the Iowa State in the Alamo Bowl.

IMO, the top stinkers so far are the Redbox game between UO and Michigan St., the Cotton Bowl between Notre Dame and Clemson, and the Cheez-it Bowl between Cal and TCU.

Although the Armed Forces Bowl was a lopsided victory for Army, I savored the 70-14 win over Houston that gave the underated Army team the most wins in a season, ever, 11.

IMO the best bowl game were on New Year's Day, and what made it even more exciting was four of the five games were upsets.

Hard to pick which game was the best, but it was hard to not root for #15 Texas in their win over #5 Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.

Some probably wanted #8 UCF's two-year winning streak to continue, but #11 LSU was obviously the better team in the Fiesta Bowl.

Both #12 Penn State and #9 UW needed at least another quarter of play if they were to beat #14 Kentucky and #6 OSU in the Citrus and Rose Bowls, and despite their many injuries, unranked Iowa was much better than #18 Mississippi State in the Outback Bowl.

UCF losing their starting QB a couple games ago was a tough break.

UW made it close, but they were never really gonna win. OSU had let up on the gas pedal.

Georgia getting roasted after all their woofing about being more deserving than Oklahoma and ND was funny.
