Like most of America, I rang in 2015 watching Jenny McCarthy make sexually-loaded jokes and Ryan Seacrest doing his best to save us from the awkwardness with his corny one-liners. If you’re feeling a little “under the weather” from last night’s festivities, you have the perfect excuse to lay on the couch, as today marks the biggest day for college football in decades. Fans have been complaining about the BCS system since it started in 1998, and they’ll finally have their wish granted, as the first ever College Football Playoff kicks off at 5pm. The historic matchups between 2-3 and 1-4 will have most of America glued to their televisions this afternoon, but there are plenty of other top-tier games to last you until then.
12:00 – Outback Bowl (No. 19 Auburn vs. No. 18 Wisconsin)
12:30 – Goodyear Cotton Bowl (No. 8 Michigan State vs. No. 5 Baylor)
1:00 – Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl (No. 16 Missouri vs. No. 25 Minnesota)
5:00 – Rose Bowl (No. 2 Oregon vs. No. 3 Florida State)
8:00 – Sugar Bowl (No. 1 Alabama vs. No. 4 Ohio State)
The night will cap off with Damien Harris’ other top schools (can they both lose?) battling in New Orleans for a chance to go to the national championship. Leave us your predictions in the comment section below.
Happy New Year from all of us at KSR… now go watch some football.
