2013 College Football Bowl Schedule released

The 100th Rose Bowl and the last ever BCS Championship Game end here. - Harry How

See how you'll be spending your December/January (and where the Buckeyes may end up).

The Football Writers Association and the bowl powers that be released the full 2013-2014 college football bowl schedule on Wednesday afternoon. There aren't really any surprises as essentially all of the changes and matchups have been set in stone for some time, but now we know exactly how to plan our holidays to maximize our overall late December/early January bowl consumption.

A few sponsorship changes aside, there isn't a ton new on the slate this year other than the various games' dates and times.

In past years, college football's bowl season's opening weekend would include two games that Saturday. That number has now been upped to four, ensuring the beginning of your holiday vacation (or pre-holiday vacation period) can be spent watching a minimum of eight and half hours of low major and the most barely bowl eligible power conference schools duke it out for arbitrary hardware.

Of course from an Ohio State vantage, the math is simple: BCS Championship game or bust. Even a trip to the 100th Rose Bowl would feel like a let down if Urban Meyer and company are unable to achieve their lofty goals of returning to the highest echelon of college football. It's worth noting that Alabama's current "dynasty" began in Pasadena four years ago.
