Default Please help me pick a bowl game

This year, I have to pick a bowl game to cover for Expedia. I've done 7 games this year so far and have one more to end the season. The real key for me is getting the time off work for one of these games. However, would you vote for which one of these you would go to?

Please keep in mind the game AND the location. Also, if you are on Twitter would you tweet your suggestion to me @budgettravelsac with the tag #ExpediaCFB? Would really appreciate any tweets for this so Expedia would know.

Here are the games. I would like to do the Outback but leaving that one out because everyone would pick that. If I can't go to the Outback, which one of these should I do?

Go to the Fiesta Bowl. I bet it's cool seeing Oregon live, plus it's in a good location. That or the Chick fil a bowl to see Clemmy get hammered.

I like the Fiesta as well. Biggest question with that one was that I saw Oregon play to end the season (I was in Corvallis for the game against Oregon State). Then I would end up watching them again in the Fiesta. Great match up though!

I'd want to go to a game with an SEC team participating, but you might not care about that as much.

This year I went to 7 games and saw teams from the SEC, ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac 12, Mountain West, and Independent play. For me, it's about a good game and location.

Honestly, the biggest factor may be what days I can get off for travel.

Fiesta hands down.

Rose second just because of the experience and stuff leading to it, the game itself won't be as good.

In terms of bowl atmosphere, the Chick should be near the top. I think it would be a fun one to attend.

I think the Rose Bowl could be a really good game. I think Wisconsin and Stanford match up well in terms of style. It won't be a high scoring slugfest but it will be some hard hitting football.

I've been in LA on New Year's. Man, the weather there is awesome!

I've been to San Francisco more times than I can count. I live 100 miles from there. I'll go there if I have to (basically I can't get the time off to go anywhere else) but I prefer other locations. I can go to SF any time.
