Champs Sports worth look Matt Murschel Orlando Sentinel When the bowl matchups were announced Sunday night, it was easy to pick out the must-see games and the ones that are simply background noise to your in-laws' holiday visit. Of the pre-New Year's bowls, the Champs Sports Bowl on Dec. 29 offers one of the most interesting matchups with Florida State and Notre Dame. Two of the most storied college football programs will meet in Orlando, Fla.

With the bowl season beginning tonight with Texas Christian and Northern Illinois playing in the Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego, it's hard not to cry for Arizona and Washington State. Both of these football teams reached the pinnacle of success as determined by the NCAA and ESPN by reaching six wins, finishing with a fine record of 6-6. But the Wildcats and Cougars will be home for the holidays. Considering that Iowa (6-6) lost five of its final six games to earn a berth in the Alamo Bowl, perhaps they have an argument.
