The official college football bowl game schedule was released on Sunday night after yet another exciting finish to the regular season.

The bowl game pairings generated shock, happiness, and a fair share of disappointment - particularly for Oklahoma State. The BCS Championship pairing of Alabama-LSU won't end calls for a playoff anytime soon, but should effectively whet the palate of many college football aficionados.
