Bowl Preview - Friday’s Early Games

For so many the Bowl season is a first chance to get a look at prospects. It starts the process of the draft season, the 2018 NFL Draft in this case.

For others, this is the culmination of three to four years worth of gathering information and putting the final game and film notes on prospects down.

Today, there are three bowl games to know, plus a big game and the local team.
