College Football Bowl Games on TV Today

Cheez-It Bowl: No. 18 Oklahoma State (7-3) vs. No. 21 Miami (8-2)

5:30 p.m. on ESPN – Camping World Stadium (Orlando, Fla.)

Why you should watch: The first bowl matchup of Power 5 teams, both Oklahoma State and Miami boast explosive offenses, although the Cowboys will be missing their top running back, Chuba Hubbard. On the other side, the Hurricanes will be down several key defenders, so perhaps that will even things out. Either way, both teams are looking for some season-ending momentum after somewhat disappointing campaigns.

Valero Alamo Bowl: No. 20 Texas (6-3) vs. Colorado (4-1)

9 p.m. on ESPN – Alamodome (San Antonio)

Why you should watch: Head coach Tom Herman will probably be back at Texas next season, but it's been another disappointing season for the Longhorns and several key players on both sides of the ball are skipping this game. Colorado was one of the bigger surprises under first-year head coach Karl Dorrell and even though Texas may be down, the Buffaloes would love to notch a win against their former Big 8 rival.
