11 a.m., ESPN: College football, Meineke Car Care Bowl: South Florida vs. Clemson at Charlotte. Does anyone travel out of state for bowl games any more?

1 p.m., CBS-2: College football, Hyundai Sun Bowl: Notre Dame vs. Miami at El Paso, Texas. The highly-anticipated modestly-anticipated not-really-anticipated-at-all revival of the old "Catholics vs. Convicts" series from the 1980s. Today, we find out which of these teams will go 8-5; the other will be 7-6.
