The debates the BCS generated might be missed, but the system won’t. The final days of the Bowl Championship Series officially begin Saturday with the start of college football’s bowl season.
It’s always an entertaining time with bowls scheduled across the country throughout the holidays. It remains an oversaturated market with 35 bowl games, but it helps pass the time and build up to the BCS National Championship on Jan. 6 in Pasadena, Calif.
