5 College Football Bowl Haves and Have-Nots

3. Outback Bowl
Jan. 2 in Tampa, Fla.
No. 17 Michigan State vs. No. 16 Georgia
$3.4 million
This is one of the few football games in Tampa that won't get blacked out on national television this year.

Like a late-night purchase of a Bloomin' Onion appetizer after a long night of Foster's drinking, the Outback Bowl doesn't seem like the best idea until it actually happens. With ESPN pretty much monopolizing the bowl game slate on Jan. 2, this is the one game that's made it to ABC and given casual fans a fighting chance to see it.

Combine that exposure with warm Gulf weather and payout with a weekend in Tampa/St. Pete and you're not only giving teams motivation to head south for the holiday, but you're giving people in their frozen Midwest hometowns plenty of reason to watch.
