PiRate Ratings 2012-2013 College Football Bowl Preview

Bowl Season commences Saturday afternoon, and in the next four weeks, 35 of these contests will be played.  A few of these games will be exciting, but most will be duds this year.  Some will take place with interim coaches on both sides of the field, while in the Rose Bowl, former Wisconsin coach Barry Alvarez will come out of retirement for one game (receiving $118,000 for his efforts).

Here is the complete rundown for this season, with all the bowl information you need to know, when to tune in, and where.  Of course, if you are like us and wish there were real NFL-style playoffs (or even FCS style playoffs) for the FBS, you need to check back here Friday afternoon for the second installment of our PiRate Ratings Computer Simulated Playoffs.  Round One was played last Friday, and you can check out the results at: https://piratings.wordpress.com/2012/12/07/2012-13-ncaa-simulated-football-playoffs-round-one/

  2. Thanks for discussing your ideas. The one thing is that students have
    an option between federal government student loan and a
    private student loan where its easier to decide on student loan debt consolidation than
    in the federal education loan.
