15. Gator (Jan 1): Georgia (8-4) vs. Nebraska (8-4). You know it's New Year's Day when Bo Pelini's Cornhuskers are playing against an SEC East team in Florida. Georgia won't have Aaron Murray, but don't forget about tailback Todd Gurley, one of the lone survivors of the Bulldogs' 2013 injury extravaganza.

Jordan Lynch will look to become the first player to pass for 2,000 yards and rush for 2,000 yards in the same season.

35. Heart of Dallas (Jan. 1): North Texas (8-4) vs. UNLV (7-5). At the dawn of 2014, the least interesting matchup of bowl season is a New Year's Day game played in the Cotton Bowl. That sound you heard was 1964 turning over in its grave.
