College Football Bowl Games on TV Today

Military Bowl Presented by Northrop Grumman: North Carolina (6-6) vs. Temple (8-4)

12 p.m. on ESPN – Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium (Annapolis, Md.)

Why you should watch: Programs that enjoyed success under first-year head coaches meet for the first time on the gridiron. North Carolina is looking for its first bowl win since 2013 while Temple is making a fifth straight postseason appearance. The Tar Heels’ offense vs. the Owls’ defense will be the matchup to watch.

New Era Pinstripe Bowl: Michigan State (6-6) vs. Wake Forest (8-4)

3:20 p.m. on ESPN – Yankee Stadium (Bronx, N.Y.)

Why you should watch: Two of the nation’s most respected head coaches will go head-to-head in Yankee Stadium. Dave Clawson’s Demon Deacons like to speed up the tempo on offense while Mark Dantonio’s Spartans are known for their defense.

Academy + Sports Outdoors Texas Bowl: Oklahoma State (8-4) vs. Texas A&M (7-5)

6:45 p.m. on ESPN – NRG Stadium (Houston)

Why you should watch: Former Big 12 rivals meet in Houston with an eye toward setting the tone for 2020. Oklahoma State and Texas A&M both feature high-powered offenses, but the combination of injuries and some players sitting this game out will give others an opportunity to shine.

San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl: USC (8-4) vs. Iowa (9-3)

8 p.m. on FS1 – SDCCU Stadium (San Diego)
Why you should watch: Different styles will be on display in San Diego for this one. USC likes to throw the ball all over the field while Iowa is content with grinding things out on offense and wearing teams down on defense. The Trojans will try and turn this game into a shootout but will the Hawkeyes let them?

Cheez-It Bowl: Air Force (10-2) vs. Washington State (6-6)

10:15 p.m. on ESPN – Chase Field (Phoenix)

Why you should watch: Two of the nation’s top offenses that go about it in different ways will be on display. Air Force averages nearly 300 rushing yards per game while Washington State has the nation’s No. 1 passing attack (444.3 ypg). The Chase Field scoreboard operator should be plenty busy and may not get many breaks considering the Falcons’ run-heavy approach and the Cougars’ pass-happy ways.
