The bowls certainly arrived this week. Pretty close to a clean sweep of the top 10, though a few tenacious concert performers hung on. On top, not particularly surprising, is the National Championship. The power of the first Fighting Irish national championship game in a long time easily overcame the other challengers. The Cotton Bowl arrives in second place, and 1D drops to #3. I’m sure if there was a Teen Heartthrob Bowl, they would be a shoe-in to win.

The Fiesta and Outback Bowls round out the top five. Noticeable due to its absence, the Rose Bowl is the only BCS match-up that didn’t make the Top 10. Judging by where it ended up on the full list, the Rose Bowl had about the same chance to make the Top 10 as Justin Beiber has to win a Grammy next year.

Taylor Swift leads off the bottom five. She’s been a solid, consistent presence on the countdown despite the fact that her Red Tour doesn’t even start until next spring. We will see if she can hold onto that boy-band-like momentum all the way through. Hanging in for another week, Clapton adds the punctuation to the list. Like Ms Swift, he won’t be on stages until March, but that’s not slowing him down at the moment.

As the list suggests, the college football bowl announcements arrived last Sunday night, just in time to almost completely take over the list. This is probably the most bowls I’ve seen on any list since keeping track. The bowl almost ran the board, but Cowboys fans would not be denied. They clung to the countdown at #10.

Diverse set in the top 5, kicking off with the venerable Cotton Bowl, now in Arlington, followed by the Music City Bowl, one that’s had strong buzz even before the teams were announced. Mississippi State and Wake Forest fans are looking forward to locking up in Nashville. The Alamo Bowl, another “local” favorite, rounds out the top 3, followed by the actual National Championship game at #4.

The bottom five kicks off with the Holiday Bowl. The big BCS bowls cluster down at the bottom of the list, with Orange, Sugar, and Fiesta all grouped together right over the Cowboys. For what it’s worth, the Rose Bowl would have been #12 on the list.
