It's the most wonderful time of the year- Bowl Season! Yeah yeah yeah I love Christmas as well. But as a lover of college football, I also love bowl season. And after a dramatic (to say the least) weekend in the sport, the matchups are set. The first bowl game will kick off December 16th and the season will come to an end on January 8th with the National Championship. Bowl games offer the team a trip, an extra month of practice, memories, and a chance to increase their win total. They are also fun for the fans. This fan loves when her team ends up in a desirable location. Nothing better than starting the New Year on a fun trip! And that's exactly what I'll be doing this year. This year the state of NC is playing host to two bowl games and 3 college football teams from North Carolina will be participating in postseason matchups. This is fewer than other years with teams like Wake Forest, ECU, and Charlotte failing to qualify for postseason play. But not to be left out South Carolina is always getting in on the fun hosting a game and sending 2 teams bowling. So which teams are headed where? And when can you catch a local bowl game? Don't worry I've got all the info for you. Keep reading to see the bowl matchups in and involving North Carolina as well as South Carolina. With players entering the transfer portal and sitting out to avoid injury prior to the draft, some teams may look a little different in these games. But hopefully, there will be some competitive matchups and interesting games! You can view the full slate via ESPN here. Let the daily football commence!
