Bowl season is upon us and there are some fantastic matchups this year. Check out the slate of upcoming bowl games that you can hear on ESPN 97.5 and SportsMap 94.1. All times are in Central Standard.

First up, Boise St. faces the Oregon Ducks in the Las Vegas Bowl on Dec. 16 at 2pm on ESPN 97.5 radio. Enjoy this one because the next game won’t occur until after Christmas on Dec. 26 when Kansas St. plays UCLA in the Cactus Bowl at 7pm on ESPN 97.5. On Dec. 28 the Camping World Bowl features Virginia Tech and Okie St. which kicks off at 4:15pm on SportsMap 94.1. Later that evening, Stanford plays TCU in the Valero Alamo Bowl at 8pm on ESPN 97.5. Next up, Texas A&M plays Wake Forest in the Belk Bowl that has an early kickoff at 11AM on Dec. 29, and will air on both ESPN 97.5 and SportsMap 94.1. Later Friday evening, Ohio State plays USC in the Cotton Bowl at 7pm and can be heard on ESPN 97.5.

Saturday Dec 30 will be a full day of football with three bowl games on the schedule. First, the Auto Zone Liberty Bowl that features a matchup between Iowa St and Memphis which begins at noon. All three games on Saturday the 30th will be aired on ESPN 97.5. After the Liberty Bowl concludes, the PlayStation Fiesta Bowl showcases the Washington Huskies and the Penn St. Panthers. The final game of the night is a big one, and will begin right after the Fiesta Bowl. The Orange Bowl pairs Wisconsin against Miami and is the last game of the weekend.

The Peach Bowl begins early on New Year’s Day, so make sure you don't miss UCF vs. Auburn which you can hear on SportsMap 94.1 at 11AM. If the Peach Bowl for some reason doesn’t do it for you, don’t worry. The Citrus Bowl starts just thirty minutes later at 11:30AM with LSU playing Notre Dame and can be heard on ESPN 97.5. The bowl game marathon continues at 3pm when Georgia plays Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl. Directly following the game, the All-State Sugar Bowl kicks off and features a very familiar matchup. Alabama takes on the Clemson Tigers in what should be a fantastic game between two teams that know each other very well. Both the Rose Bowl and the Sugar Bowl will be aired on ESPN 97.5 and SportsMap 94.1.

Finally, it all comes down to this. The National Championship game will begin at 7pm on Jan. 8 and will air on both ESPN 97.5 and SportsMap 94.1.

Enjoy the games!

Deshaun Watson will make his Cleveland Browns debut this Sunday against his former team at NRG Stadium. Watson has completed his suspension from the NFL for alleged sexual misconduct with dozens of massage therapists, and this Sunday will be the first game he has played in 700 days.

The Browns sit at 4-7 hoping Watson will be the spark the team needs to stack some wins and get into the Wild Card race. The Texans are still searching for their second win of the season, and many believe the team will be hiring another head coach come January.

With this in mind, who has the worst reputation? The Texans or Deshaun Watson?

It seems like an easy answer with Watson's legal troubles, but upon further review, the answer has to be the Texans. The Texans have hired two consecutive coaches that no other NFL team even interviewed. It seems like no quality candidates have any interest in coaching the Texans. Watson, however, had teams lining up for his services when the Texans decided to trade him.

Be sure to check out the video above as we dive into this topic and make a convincing case, as crazy as it sounds, that Watson is perceived to have a better reputation.
