College Football: Best Five Bowl Games of 2014-2015 Season
Prior to the playoff system, there was a lot of debate as to whether the bowls would lose their meaning if only four teams made the new playoff format. Would winning the Rose Bowl or the Sugar Bowl mean the same thing if the winner ended up losing in the National Championship the following week? Would fans not care as much about the Cotton Bowl, the Fiesta Bowl or Orange Bowl if they contain teams not invovled in the college football playoff?
It's pretty safe to say the answer to that question is no. All the usual college football fans still cared about all the New Year's Eve and New Year's Day bowls, and the biggest of fans still loved catching some of the earlier bowls as well.
Which leads to our list of the top five best bowl games of the 2014-2015 bowl season. There were 39 bowls to choose from, more than ever before, and FN Senior Writer Dave Holcomb narrowed it down to just the top five.
Here's the list.
