College Football Bowl Projections for 2013

NickSaban.png

Whether you hate or love the BCS, the bowl season is exciting time for college football fans. Although some believe there are too many bowl games, it's one last chance to see teams before the long offseason sets in. And considering how long the offseason is, maybe 35 bowl games isn't too many after all. 

With college football's new playoff format coming with the 2014 season, this will be the final year for many of the tie-ins with current bowls. And of course, the BCS format will morph into a four-team playoff, with a national championship site awarded to the highest bidder. With more bowl games expected in 2014 and beyond, we may see at least 40 postseason matchups starting next season.

Athlon has released its 2013 rankings but it's time to unveil where teams will be spending the postseason. 

Alabama and Ohio State are Athlon's prediction to play in the national title game, but who will play in college football's remaining 35 bowls?
