College Football Bowl Games
All About Bowl Games

Here in the United States, College Football Bowl Games are traditionally the post-season NCAA college football games amongst the college football teams that make it through the season and end up in the top positions; however college bowl games have become synonymous with these major American football events. Many variations of the traditional post-season match-up between two successful college teams do exist and are sponsored (and therefore named) by different companies - a lot of them with name recognition around the world. The term "bowl" originated from the Rose Bowl Stadium, the site of the first post-season college football games. The Rose Bowl stadium in Pasadena, CA takes its name and bowl-shaped design from the Yale Bowl, the prototype of many football stadiums in the United States. Below is this season's list of bowl games. Showing all match-ups for the 2011/2012 bowl game season in the order of when they are being played.

College Football Bowl Games (also called NCAA football bowl games) are always full of excitement. Hence college bowl tickets are often hard to get a hold of. Years and years of traditions and camaraderie that you will hardly find anywhere else in sports or in life.
