Top College Teams and Fans gear up for Bowl Game Travel

Sports Traveler is getting ready for our favorite time of the year.. no, not Christmas… Bowl Season!

It’s so much fun hearing from college football fans ready to travel all over the US to see their team play. At Sports Traveler we already have a lot of Bowl Game options ready to book. I know it’s early and we don’t know the teams yet, but you can start making your plan ahead of the rest today!

The top bowl game is going to the College Football National Championship game in Miami Florida. Miami is one of the best places to be in January. Actually, I can’t think of any place better to be than Miami in the winter. From the hot hot South Beach area to quiet areas of Ft. Lauderdale – everyone will find something fun to do. Maybe think about extending your trip to the Keys for a few days after the game on Jan. 8th, and making a vacation out of your Bowl Game Trip. Our full service travel desk can help you plan every part of your trip from start to finish – airfare, rental car, extra nights in different Florida cities, etc.

Take a look at all the BCS Packages that we now have on-sale and start your planning!  Choose from the Rose Bowl, Orange Bowl, Fiesta Bowl, Sugar Bowl, or BCS National Championship Game

Don’t understand how the whole BCS Bowl Game system that determines what team goes to the BCS National Championship Game? Our travel and sports experts break it all down for you here:

The first BCS standings came out this week and Texas, Alabama, and Penn State are your top 3 teams.  Including Texas, there are four teams from the Big 12 South who are in the top 8 in the BCS Standings.  Texas, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and Oklahoma are all legitimate contenders.  Since these teams are in the same division, only one can qualify for the Big 12 Championship.  The winner of the conference clinches a BCS Berth and how the season is progressing, one of these 4 teams will be in the National Championship.
