It seems like the regular season in college football just ended.
Actually it did just last weekend with the Army-Navy game. Even if your not interested in the service academies, that tradition is still worth a watch. It holds more meaning than many of the games in the bowl season, which starts this Saturday.
“Bowl Week” long ago became “Bowl Fortnight,” or maybe more accurately, “Bowl Month.” In 1991 there were merely 18 bowl games, meaning 36 out of the 104 D-1 teams at the time made a bowl.
Back in those modest days, I thought that was quite enough.
Now, 70 FBS teams out of 120 play a 13th (or even 14th) game. Even something once known as the NHL would think that’s way too many to qualify for a “postseason.”
I will now attempt to give you the Against The Spread winners for all 35 bowls.
