Happy last day of 2018, AA-ers.

The College Football Playoff has already occurred at this point this year, giving us yet another Clemson-Alabama title game, but there are still quite a few bowl games today and tomorrow before that contest.

Military Bowl presented by Northrup Grumann
Cincinnati vs. Virginia Tech (12:00 p.m., ESPN): This year’s edition in Annapolis features the ten-win Bearcats against a disappointing Hokies squad that barely managed bowl eligibility.

Bowl gifts: A Dell Mobile Projector M318WL, $100 Amex Gift Card, and a pair of ISlides.

Hyundai Sun Bowl
Stanford vs. Pittsburgh (2:00 p.m., CBS): El Paso hosts the Cardinal and Panthers, with the two programs meeting for the first time in 86 years.

Bowl gifts: A gift suite, Timely Watch Co. watch, Majestic fleece pullover, Ogio Excelsior backpack, Under Armour cap, and a commemorative coin.

Redbox Bowl
Michigan State vs. Oregon (3:00 p.m., FOX): Two teams with somewhat disappointing seasons, inconsistent offenses, and solid defenses, meet in Levi’s Stadium.

Bowl gifts: Fossil watch, Timbuktu backpack, Roku, headphones, and Redbox Bowl merchandise.

Autozone Liberty Bowl
Missouri vs. Oklahoma State (3:45 p.m., ESPN): Here’s the game of the day with the most shootout potential, as the No. 23 Tigers and Cowboys square off in Memphis.

Bowl gifts: A shopping trip to Memphis’ Bass Pro Shops, Bose SoundLink micro Bluetooth speaker, Bulova watch, Nike athletic shoes. sport sandals, backpack and sunglasses, and a football.

San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl
Northwestern vs. Utah (7:00 p.m., FS1): The No. 17 Utes face the surprising No. 22 Wildcats in San Diego’s Holiday Bowl. This game will likely be light on offense.

Bowl gifts: A gift suite, Fossil watch, and New Era cap.

Taxslayer Gator Bowl
NC State vs. Texas A&M (7:30 p.m., ESPN): The No. 19 Aggies are in Florida for the New Year, as Jimbo Fisher leads his first Texas A&M squad against the Wolfpack in Jacksonville.

Bowl gifts: Fossil watch, Maui Jim sunglasses, Amazon Echo, ISlides, SIC tumbler, and a dopp kit.
