The simple answer to the age-old debate between Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck is not rabbit season or duck season...it's bowl season!

Well, not yet of course, but the NCAA released the schedule Wednesday and wants you to start thinking about it and pronto.

Always the most notable of the bunch, the New Year's Six games are highlighted below (all times ET).
