Bowl games today: Updated list of schedule & results for December 27

Bowl games today feature some very interesting matchups, including a couple of P5 heavyweights clashing in the evening.

The bowl games today are decidedly more significant than the ones that took place on December 26, though to be honest, you might have to tell the teams that are playing in them. On the other hand, any Nebraska football fans who enjoy watching the Big Ten are out of luck on Wednesday as no B1G teams play in any bowl games today.

As was the case for Tuesday, those who love to watch football  all day long are in for a treat. The first game takes place at 1:00 PM and then football fans will have something to watch for the rest of the day. The first game might be the most interesting just because it features a not so great P5 team against a very good G5 squad.

Military Bowl kicks off the bowl games today

Starting at 1:00pm, 6-6 Virginia Tech will face off against 11-2 Tulane. Thanks to the number of Green Wave players that have announced they won’t be playing in the game, VaTech is a 10.5 point favorite. This game will be interesting to watch just to see what unfolds.

Duke's Mayo Bowl

There’s some irony that North Carolina is facing off in the game that has the word Duke in it. Of course, this is the company, not the rival school. Still, perhaps the Tar Heels will find some extra incentive to beat West Virginia who is a bit of a surprise 8-4 team. The game kicks off at 4:30 pm.

DIRECTV Holiday Bowl

Until the evening, the bowl games today offer only one option to watch at a time. However, once night falls, college football fans can either watch surprisingly 7-5 USC take on 10-2 Louisville at 7pm or they can tune into ESPN an hour later to watch Oklahoma State face off against former Big 12 rival Texas A&M. 

Nebraska football fans will, of course, remember that at one time, both teams were the Huskers Big 12 rivals. And the Cowboys rivalry goes all the way back to the Big 8. Perhaps that makes this the one to watch in the bowl games today.
