Let's be honest the first week of bowl games are usually filled with bottom feeder BCS schools and smaller schools who aren't that talented. That said, these games often end up pretty entertaining with a ton of points scored. The Las Vegas Bowl is clearly the shining star for the first seven games of the 2010-11 Bowl season with Boise State taking on Utah. However, don't let the lack of "name" teams scare you off, keep an eye on the games, you never know which one is going to be the one that combines for 80+ points and goes down to the wire.
