With 35 bowl games played over slightly more than three weeks, there has been an overabundance of college football action lately. Beginning in Albuquerque and Idaho on Dec. 17 and traversing the country during the holiday season, the 2011-2012 slate of college football bowl games culminated on Monday night at the Superdome in New Orleans when Alabama trumped LSU in the BCS National Championship Game.
The smorgasbord of gridiron action has been so abundant that even the most ardent fans and depraved gamblers have been hard pressed to keep up with it all. That the dessert course in the Big Easy may not have been as sweet -- unless, of course, you're a Tide supporter -- as we'd hoped, is no reason to forget the gluttonous pleasure of everything that came before it.
Here is a highlight-induced flashback of every bowl game this year. Re-live your favorite moments and check out the best plays from the games that you might have missed the first time around.
