The last weekend of the college football season will get underway Friday, with three final bowl games leading up to the BCS Championship Game. Friday night will see the most important game - the Cotton Bowl - take place between Texas A&M and Oklahoma.

Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel will close out his superb freshman year against an Oklahoma team that went 8-1 in Big 12 play. Quarterback Landry Jones will be playing his final game in a Sooners' jersey as Oklahoma reached the Cotton Bowl for the first time since 2002.

On Saturday, Pittsburgh will meet Ole Miss in a battle between the Big East and the SEC in the BBVA Compass Bowl. Both teams finished the regular season with 6 wins, just enough to be bowl eligible. Pittsburgh is coming off two straight wins, including an upset of Rutgers.

Sunday brings the GoDaddy.com Bowl, which will feature Kent State against Arkansas State. The Golden Flashes went undefeated in conference play, losing to Northern Illinois in the last game of the regular season. The Red Wolves went 7-1 in the Sun Belt Conference, including a seven-game winning streak to close out the season.
