Playing in the Capital One Bowl might be the next best thing to playing in a BCS bowl game.

With the possible exception of the storied old Cotton Bowl, the Capital One Bowl is the most prestigious of all the non-BCS games, and its current conference affiliations with the SEC and Big Ten gives this game one of the most attractive New Year's Day matchups each and every year.

The bowl was previously known as the Florida Citrus Bowl but has now taken on the name of its title sponsor, Capital One. The game pays out $4.5 million per year, more than any other non-BCS bowl.

The game is played at 1 p.m. on New Year's Day at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando, Fla.
