Just over a week from now, it will officially be bowl season when the New Mexico Bowl kicks off on December 15th although things really won't get heated up until the day after Christmas.  Then it is time to buckle your seat because it will be jam packed couple of weeks ahead.

Here's a look at who playing where and when it's happening along with the announcing teams for every bowl game this season.  If you're wondering what channel to catch your favorite team on, it's a good bet it's on ESPN or one of their networks.  They have are carrying every single bowl game with the exception of the Sun and Cotton Bowls which will air on CBS and Fox, respectively.

As you will see, the nine Big 12 games are listed first followed by all of the other 24 games.

The Sirius channel listings will be updated once they become available, most likely next week.
