National radio coverage for all the games over the three days discussed in this report is from ESPN radio, with four exceptions: Military Bowl: Nevada Sports Network; Charlotte Belk Bowl: Touchdown Radio; Independence Bowl: Sports USA Radio; and San Francisco Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl: Touchdown Radio. ESPN radio has the coverage rights for 23 of the 35 bowls, with four other radio broadcast entities dividing up the other 12 bowl games.

Good message, i like the Voting Champion-system and the bowl games, i can say you which team won the National Voting Championship, but i don´t know which team compete in the NFL Championship Bowl.

add me to the list………16-18 bowls is enough……..no one with a record of 7-5 or 6-6 deserves a bowl game. You are rewarding teams for mediocrity.

San Jose State baby!

Now everyone knows why Georgia ducked playing the Spartans!

*wonders why Kevin is soooooo quiet!*

can’t wait for 2013!

No bowl game should be played in a baseball stadium……That Kraft bowl should be played in Stanford’s facility, and the Beef brady bowl should be played in the tampa bay buc’s place. But we’ll give a pass to Yankee stadium.

No bowl game should be played up North unless a dome is available. Bowl is suppose to be a reward not punishment.

sure hope Texas/Oregon State and TCU/Michigan State give us better games than the 3 early stinkers!
WVU should be ashamed. Big 12/East school should never lose to a Big East/ACC school

So I guess you’re saying Kansas should beat FSU and Clemson if they ever played? A conference doesn’t determine if you are a good football team, you show it on the field.

But I do hope NIU whips FSU, doubt it will happen but I still hope it does.
Kansas? As long as Charlie is the coach…not many wins in Lawrence.
