College football and bowl games go together like peanut butter and jelly. Like hot dogs and ketchup. And not like pineapple and pizza. While the FBS level has started a four-team college football playoff to determine a national champion (with increasing momentum to expand to eight teams), the postseason for the highest level of college football is filled with bowl games.

There were 41 bowl games in the 2019-2020 season. For some, that’s way too many. For others, they get a kick out of placing some college football betting wagers on games called the Guaranteed Rate Bowl, the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, or the Duke’s Mayo Bowl.

The history of the bowl game dates back to 1902 with the Tournament East-West football game, which was sponsored by the Tournament of Roses Association and is now known as the Rose Bowl. 

Who has the most bowl game wins after all of these years? The answer probably doesn’t surprise you.
