Top 10 games in the 2016-17 bowl season

The 2016 College football season is coming to a close. We had a lot of shocking finishes, dominant performances, and even a little controversy peppered in throughout the year. Alabama, Ohio State, and Clemson performed up to expectation for most of the year on their way to a College Football Playoff appearance. Michigan, Washington, Colorado, and Penn State all exceeded expectations and all showed great strides in restoring their programs to national relevance.

With all the dust settling, we pick our top ten bowl games to finish the 2016 season. These games will set some programs on the right track, while others will be questioning where they are headed for next year. Here’s the list:

**NOTE:Statistics were taken from the ESPN archive of each team. The top ten picks are excluding the CFP matchups to give credit to other less-touted bowls due to the obvious nature of picking the Semifinal matchups**
