  In reply to: "New Year's Six".... ESPN-ism if I've ever heard one.  posted by BlackJack21

What term would you use? I like "major bowls," which was the favored term before the Bowl Coalition, Bowl Alliance and BCS. But the definition of "major bowls" was subject to change; the Fiesta gained that status sometime in the early 1980s, and the Cotton lost it in the mid-1990s but now has it back. "New Year's Six" leaves no room for doubt.
