College football bowl season kicks off tomorrow with five games on the docket. This year’s bowl season will feature 40 games, culminating with the College Football Playoff National Championship game on January 8.
We here at The 300s aren’t experts on all 130 Division I Football Bowl Subdivision teams, but we have wasted more Saturday afternoons in October than we care to admit. So if your fantasy football season was a train wreck, jump on our train as we pick every game this bowl season. After all, what the hell else will there be to watch on TV the day after Christmas? Might as well make things interesting.
