The 2014 NCAA football bowl games schedule will bring some of the best college football of the New Year as top teams square off in historic and traditional games. Among them will be the former #1-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide, the Oklahoma Sooners, the Oklahoma State Cowboys, the surprising Auburn Tigers and the #1 Florida State Seminoles. Several SEC schools are still in action in some of the biggest bowl games remaining on the schedule, as reported by FB Schedules website.
The scheduled TV and live stream NCAA games schedules note that the bowl games continue in early 2014 with a matchup featuring Oklahoma and Alabama on Wednesday night at 8:30 p.m. EST. Alabama was on track to win its third-straight national championship until Auburn got in the way with a miraculous late game upset. Meanwhile, Oklahoma will be looking to gain as much respect as possible after managing to make it into this bowl game. The Sugar Bowl will be featured on ESPN.com with the 11-1 Crimson Tide versus 10-2 Oklahoma Sooners also live streaming on WatchESPN.
On Friday night, two more big NCAA bowl games take place. First up is the AT&T Cotton Bowl at 8 p.m. EST on FOX. This game will feature the Missouri Tigers against the Oklahoma State Cowboys, a battle of two teams with just two losses all season. The Tigers were formerly in the Big 12 with Oklahoma State, but have now been a part of the SEC. Of note, the Cowboys have taken nine of the last ten meetings when playing schools from the SEC. Can the #13 school upset the #8 school?
The other major game on Friday night will feature #12 Clemson against #7 Ohio State in the Discover Orange Bowl. These are two teams who had both been mentioned as potential contenders for the BCS National Championship during the season. Clemson eventually fell to the current #1 Florida State team in a rout, while Ohio State lost in the last possible game of the season, the Big Ten title game against Michigan State. Now the two powerhouse schools meet up at 8:30 p.m. EST on ESPN and WatchESPN for TV or live stream coverage.
Several more bowl games arrive on Saturday, January 4 and Sunday, January 5 via ESPN and WatchESPN. It will be Vanderbilt vs. Houston in the BBVA Compass Bowl on Saturday at 1 p.m. EST and Arkansas State vs. Ball State in the Go Daddy Bowl on Sunday at 9 p.m. EST. Both days also happen to feature NFL playoffs wild-card games taking place too, so it could be a huge football weekend.
Of course no game is bigger than the one in store for Monday, January 6th though. That will be the VIZIO BCS National Championship game where #1 Florida State plays against #2 Auburn for this season’s title. Game time is set for 8:30 p.m. EST on ESPN for TV, or WatchESPN for live online viewing. Many fans and analysts expect the Seminoles to roll to a title easily, but as Auburn has shown they can easily hang with, and defeat, the best in the nation. Will they have one more big win in store for the national scene, or is this FSU’s year to shine?
