As we count down the days until pitchers and catchers report to spring training, here's a holiday season contest to help pass the time.

BYB is going bowling. As in- college football bowl games. The Blessyouboys Bowling League has been set up for your enjoyment, with 35 bowl games featuring 70 teams. The league is set up through Yahoo sports, and is very easy to play. Just make your picks, rank them in order of your confidence level, then sit back and enjoy.

This season's bowl schedule begins on December 15 and ends with the National Championship game between Notre Dame and Alabama on January 7. The lineup includes Michigan, Michigan State, Central Michigan, and Toledo.

Here's how to play.

1. Click Here to go to the Yahoo bowl page

2. Click on "Join Group"

3. Sign into Yahoo with your Yahoo ID, or create an ID using an e mail address.

4. Enter the Group ID 10536, and the password "tigers2013"

5. Make your selections, then rank them according to your confidence level.

If you are unsure about which teams to pick, you can check out the odds and the spread by going to the "cheat sheet" or the "pick distribution" tab, where all the games show the data that you need to make an informed decision.

I love college football, and especially the bowl games during the holiday season. If you're like me, you might find yourself getting interested in the outcome of some games that you otherwise had no interest in. Enjoy!
