We still have one more weekend of football (check out a very cool video on Army-Navy traditions here before Saturday's game) before the bowls start, so Tom Fornelli and I have decided to kick off bowl previews on the podcast with a ranking of all 35 games.

Luckily, Tom did the most of the legwork earlier this week by ranking his Top 35 -- using combined team ranking with a few adjustments based on intrigue. We take his list and use it to preview the biggest stories and reasons to take some time away from your holiday celebrations to consume the last bit of football from the 2013-14 season.

We count down from 35 to 1 in the podcast, according to Tom's rankings.
