Bowl games are postseason games played in December and January immediately following the regular season. Games are almost always played at a neutral site, and generally match up two teams from different conferences, based on their records in the season. A winning record is required for eligibility (6 wins in a usual 11-game season, or 7 wins in a 12- or 13-game season); all of those wins must be against NCAA Division I-A competition, with the exception that one win against Division I-AA competition may be counted for eligibility once every four years.
