2012-13 College Football Bowl Schedule

Here is the complete listing of the match-ups for all of the bowl games this year, for your viewing pleasure.  There were several winners, and several losers.

Central Michigan gets to a bowl game, but Louisiana Tech stays home.  However, after the reports that emerged about the Bulldogs’ bowl selection process by the athletic’s department, they are probably right where they deserve.

Northern Illinois does end up climbing high enough in the BCS rankings to go to the Orange Bowl as a non-AQ team.  This appears to have created duds in several of the BCS bowls.

Nevertheless, the National Championship game stands to be one for the ages, and several of the ‘other’ bowls are potentially great games.  Picks for all of the games will be coming in a couple of weeks.

So here is the complete list, before ESPN announces it.
