It's the most wonderful time of the year--college bowl season gets underway and the NFL has a slate of Saturday games. In the First Game, four NCAAF bowl games are in the the mix, starting with CMU vs SD State and ending with Boise State vs Washington. The NFL games all have playoff implications, and six of the most storied college basketball programs--Kansas @ Villanova, UCLA vs North Carolina and Ohio State vs Kentucky--round out the action on Saturday.
The Second Game has a full slate of NFL, including the Cowboys @ Eagles battling for the NFC East. The midweek GridCard features more second-tier bowl games, leading up to what ABC/ESPN has dubbed Christmasketball: a full day of NBA games on Christmas, highlighted by the Clippers @ Lakers in primetime.
