The great thing about bowl season is the storylines that the litany of bowls creates.
On one end of the spectrum, you have the titanic matchups that pit rosters full of blue-chip talent against one another in must-see games that move the needle far beyond the basic rabid fans of the programs involved.
On the other side, you have the games where both teams skid into the plate battered and bruised and leaking oil to close the season, usually marred by early departures, draft prospect holdouts, or coaching transitions (hello... Kentucky versus Iowa).
The Boca Raton Bowl this season sits squarely in the middle, matching up a conference champion with a team that is on the fade and missing their coach.
