2014 College Bowl Season

The 2014-2015 College Football Bowl Season will be the largest post game season ever. With the addition of the 4 team playoff system and many new bowls, there will be enough post season football for everyone.

The Playoffs

Among the additions will be the new 4 team championship playoff. Both the Rose Bowl on Jan 1 and the Sugar Bowl on Jan 1 will each send their winner to the Championship on January 12 in Arlington, Texas. Prior to the championship, there will be 36 other bowl games played. Power conferences like the Big 10 and the SEC may see as many as 9 or 10 bowl games for their conference.  Even the smaller conferences like R+L Bowl alumni Conference USA will see as many as 9 bowls this season.
