College football bowl season is upon us. With 39 games to consume over the holiday period, we break down which games are the most watchable.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year — you may mistakenly think that I’m referring to Christmas. You’d be wrong. Late December brings something far more wondrous and joyful. It is, of course, bowl season in college football.

Between the Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl on Dec. 20, and the Lending Tree Bowl on Jan. 6, there are 39 College Football Bowl games to look forward to. Having been relatively starved of football for the two weeks prior, college football fans will relish a regular dose of football.

Some of the matchups will be impacted by the growing trend for players to skip their bowl game in the pursuit of their NFL dreams. At the time of writing, several high-profile players had made the decision to prematurely end their college careers. They include Boston College running back, A.J. Dillon, Florida cornerback, C.J. Henderson and Washington Huskies duo, Trey Adams and Hunter Bryant.

There will be no-one skipping two of the most hotly anticipated bowl games. The Fiesta Bowl and the Peach Bowl make up the College Football Playoff this year. Clemson and Ohio State will do battle to take on the winner of LSU and Oklahoma in the National Championship.
Those two games are obvious must watch entertainment for any College Football fan.

What about the other 37 games? Which games will provide us with pure, unadulterated, football entertainment?

Read on for the five most watchable games of the bowl season.
