ALL THE DATA YOU NEED

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

1. THE MUSIC CITY BOWL, 3:00 EST

Teams: Louisiana State vs. Notre Dame

Record: 5-5 (LSU has won both bowl games)

School closer to this bowl game: Notre Dame. South Bend is 429 miles away from Nashville, according to Google Maps, compared to 587 miles for Baton Rouge.

School with the most players from this state: Also Notre Dame, with a whopping one - freshman lineman Alex Bars. (We assume Les Miles isn't welcome in the state because he thinks hot chicken is when you light a henhouse on fire.)

Ideal nap quarter: 3rd.

2. THE BELK BOWL, 6:30 EST

Teams: Georgia vs. Louisville

Record: Never played one another.

School closer to this bowl game: Charlotte's only 200 miles from Athens. Lousville's over twice that, 465 miles away driving.

School with the most players from this state: Georgia has 4 North Carolinians on the roster; Louisville only has 3. No doubt they are drawn by the opportunity to go to the home state of the Falcons and continue the Jackson-Pablo debate of Rising Up vs. Raising Up.

Ideal nap quarter: 2nd.

3. THE FOSTER FARMS BOWL, 10:00 EST

Teams: Maryland vs. Stanford

Record: Never played one another.

School closer to this bowl game. It's about 14 miles from Palo Alto to Santa Clara, so Stanford students could walk to this game at a leisurely pace and still get their faster than someone flying from the East Coast.

School with the most players from this state: The Terps have one player from California. Stanford is in California.

Ideal nap quarter: Just go to bed. You don't need to do this to yourself.
