It's that time of year again. Cup season for college football. Are you excited? Is your team in one of the buy? The first bowl game is on December 19 this year. So you don't have that many days to fix your college football. It also means that not every college team has much chance of playing jockey for a higher position. If the game is lost, it could mean a lower cup or worse no cup. Thus, all colleagues in dispute shoot for spots in cup games to try to secure positions.
Why do so many people place so much emphasis on cup games? Unlike the professional football league, there is no super cup to determine who is the best football team. The NFL doesn't even have a professional team in every state. There are colleges in every country that play football. There is simply no way for each team to compete in the short timeframe that the college season has. So, what is medicine? Bowling games are the answer. Some of them are higher than others, but everyone wants their team to be photographed. Based on how teams performed throughout the year put them in a specific bowl. The cup winner then receives a final ranking to determine their place.
The Cup Series consists of the Pasadena Rose Bowl, the New Orleans Sugar Bowl, the Glendale Fiesta Bowl, the Miami Orange Bowl, and the BCS Championship Game held in Pasadena, California. These five cups will determine the top ten college football teams. There are other cups that will show those teams that are not in the top ten. Some of these colleges have already been designated. UCLA will be in the GMAC Cup. The Air Force will be in the Armed Forces Cup. Middle Tennessee will be in the Little Caesars pizza bowl. Bowling Green is in the humanitarian cup and Northern Illinois is in the Eaglebank Bowl. For everyone else, we'll just have to wait for him to see. Anything can happen, so the level of excitement is picking up speed as everyone tries to figure out who will be in which bowl.
Currently, experts predict Florida vs. Texas for the BCS Championship Game, Cincinnati vs. Georgia Tech in the Orange Cup, Iowa vs. TCU in the Fiesta Cup, Alabama vs. Boise State in the Sugar Bowl, and Ohio State vs. Oregon State for the Rose Cup. Many of the earlier cup games are happening at the same time, so you may want to save it. These are certainly games you don't want to miss.
As the college football season is over and all the games are played, it will be time for winter sleep next year. The only consolation for some is the NFL Super Cup, which will be the last football game of the season.
