    Bowl games are celebrations, the culmination of a season of hard work. A final showcase for your team, most of the time in a warm weather locale. They give you an opportunity to pile into a car and go on a winter road trip. They're a chance to watch your school make history.

    Bowl games are also a link to the past, a time when only the best were selected to play one more time - on New Year's Day - while everyone else tried to catch up on sleep from the night before. A conference championship was the only way you could get invited to this party.

    From the inaugural Tournament of Roses Game in 1901 to the first Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl in 2009, the landscape of college bowl games has experienced drastic change.
