The best thing about bowl season is that there's a game every day. The worst thing is that often, you have no idea who these guys are. Ian Boyd introduces you to some of the best players you'll see in the next week -- including Fresno State receiver KeeSean Johnson.

It's Rivalry Week in college football -- and the biggest rivalry game in the land will see Dwayne Haskins and Ohio State battle Michigan, with a berth in the Big 10 title game and (likely) a shot in the Playoff on the line.
Hope you have access to the Longhorn Network; it's the only place to watch Hakeem Butler and the Iowa State Cyclones take on Texas in a key Big 12 matchup that's the most important game of the week. Other key games include Notre Dame-Syracuse, West Virginia-Oklahoma State, and Central Florida-Cincinnati.
Yes, Georgia-Kentucky, West Virginia-Texas, and Penn State-Michigan are all critical conference matchups. But all eyes will be on Baton Rouge, where the Alabama Crimson Tide face their first stiff test this season against Joe Burrow and LSU.
