Best Individual Performances from Week 1 of Bowl Games

College football rolls into its second week of the bowl season on Monday, and over half of the games on the bowl slate will have been played by the end of the night on Dec. 30.

In the following slides, we’ll take a look at the best individual performances from the first week of bowl action.
