Bowl season is here, and 84 FBS college football teams out of the 130 available will compete in 42 games across 18 days for your viewing and wagering pleasure.

While some will be more vacation for the teams and fans, a few will come with actual stakes such as a New Year’s Six victory, with four teams competing for the national championship. These games are often fun, wide open, and as much about motivation of the players and teams involved as the talent between the sidelines.

While for decades these games were considered only exhibitions, they’ve counted in the standings for years, and also give additional practice time for the teams and coaches participating in them. Many times you’ll see plenty of younger players getting additional time, while other teams will use the game to send off their seniors to show respect for their contributions to the program. Those tend to happen earlier in the cycle

But as it gets later, especially if you’re in a College Football Playoff semifinal like the Cotton or Orange Bowl, it can also be the biggest game you’ll ever play.
