6. Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl: TCU vs. Michigan State, 9:15 p.m. Saturday, ESPN. Beware the Frogs. They might be back in the desert next postseason — in the Fiesta Bowl.

7. Liberty Bowl: Iowa State vs. Tulsa, 2:30 p.m. Monday, ESPN. The Cyclones and Hurricane played on Sept. 1 in Ames. They play on Sept. 21, 2013, in Tulsa. That means in a span of 385 days, TU and Iowa State will meet three times. Alabama and Kentucky are in the same conference and have played twice in the last 3,007 days.

8. Heart of Dallas Bowl: OSU vs. Purdue, 11 a.m. Tuesday, ESPNU. The worst possible matchup. A 6-6 team playing with an interim coach. Dudsville.

9. Meineke Car Care of Texas Bowl: Texas Tech vs. Minnesota, 8 p.m. Friday, ESPN. Or perhaps this is the worst matchup. A 6-6 team playing against an interim coach.
