BOOM:

  • Beef 'O' Brady's St. Petersburg: Dec. 21, 7:30 p.m., ESPN (vs. C-USA)
  • Belk: Dec. 27, 6:30 p.m., ESPN (vs. ACC)
  • Russell Athletic: Dec. 28, 5:30 p.m., ESPN (vs. ACC)
  • New Era Pinstripe: Dec. 29, 3:15 p.m., ESPN or ESPN2 (vs. Big 12)
  • AutoZone Liberty: Dec. 31, 3:30 p.m., ESPN (SEC/Big East/C-USA)
  • BBVA Compass: Jan. 5, 1 p.m., ESPN (vs. SEC)

The Orange Bowl, which will more than likely be the destination of the Big East champion, will be played in Miami on New Year's Day at 8:30 p.m.

The Beef Bowl was fantastic for jokes, and Charlotte was a great late-December destination, but let's be real here: we're all going to be at least slightly disappointed if we're planning trips to anywhere other than Miami (or Tempe, etc.). You would be able to sell me on a Liberty Bowl showdown with a quality SEC opponent...if it weren't in Memphis.

I have a dream. And that dream includes a bottle of Charlie Strong bourbon and a parking lot outside of Sun Life Stadium on Jan. 1. You may fill in the details however you please.
