2012-13 Non-BCS Bowl Matchups

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Thirty bowl games in just 22 days feature teams and matchups between schools that might never get the chance to play anytime during the season.

Thirty non-BCS bowls will feature teams from across the country. Teams that just missed out on BCS bowls, including Oklahoma, Clemson, Georgia and LSU, are among the teams participating in some of the season’s highlight games.

And with matchups like Georgia vs. Nebraska, South Carolina vs. Michigan and Oregon State vs. Texas, how could you go wrong with any of these?

All of the games are of interest, so mark your calendars and get ready for a
