    It's that time of the year again. Mid-December officially kicks off the extremely busy college bowl games schedule. 40 bowl games spread out over just a couple weeks makes it's almost impossible to be able to catch all of them. Now with that being said, it makes sense that you'd want to know which games are most-likely to produce the best results. So I've narrowed it down to the top three games that should most definitely be worth the watch.

    No.3 - The Fiesta Bowl

    Jan 1st, 1 p.m. ET

    The UCF Knights are going to be giving everything they have to try to defeat LSU. It's been a bit of a running joke this season that UCF won't hold a candle in this match, but I disagree. Even though LSU is known for their strong defense, I think UCF's offense will be enough to come out on top in this one. Everyone loves an underdog match.

    No.2 - The Orange Bowl

    Dec 29th, 8 p.m. ET

    Alabama vs. Oklahoma. This is going to be a great game no matter what. It doesn't have much in the way of an underdog or some crazy build up, just two tried-and-true teams trying to win the game.

    No.1 - Cotton Bowl Classic

    Dec 29th, 4 p.m. ET

    This one. If you're only going to get to watch one bowl game this year, make it this one. Clemson vs. Notre Dame should be enough info for you to recognize how this game will go. Not only do we get to see two impressive quarterbacks go head-to-head, but we also get to see two impressive, team-carrying RBs battle it out. It's worth mentioning that both QBs replaced the original starters for each team, so that's interesting enough to watch.

    Are there any bowl games you think should be swapped out for one of these top 3 spots? I won't budge on my No.1, but I'm open to opinions on the other two.

    I'm with you with all those. 2 are playoffs games for the national title, and the other is the only undefeated in the top 10 against LSU. So has all the makings of a classic upset.

    I'll add Ohio State v Washington in the Rose Bowl. I usually watch the Rose Bowl no matter who's in it. And after the last 2 years, I'm hoping for another crazy high scoring game. Plus Ohio State has to be annoyed they didn't make it to the #4 spot and Washington has something to prove as well because they went undefeated for a while this year.

    Clemson and Notre Dame is #1 for me too. I want Notre Dame to win and then beat Alabama. I think that's how it'll go down too.

    Outside the popular ones.. TCU and Cal in the Cheez-It Bowl.

    Since the CFP came along its really hard not to pick the playoff bowl games #1. Gimme the Orange Bowl. Anyone else feel like its Oklahoma's year?

    The Texas Bowl actually ended up being the best bowl game of the season, to me (so far). Thought I'd mention here in case anyone wanted to see a recap:

    Texas Bowl: Baylor vs Vanderbilt
