Top 10 performers of bowl season

As part of an ongoing series, CFB 24/7 is taking power rankings from macro to micro. Instead of looking at the best teams that are dominating the college football landscape, we're focusing on something more specific in this series.

This week, we're looking at the best bowl game performances. Yes, not every bowl game has been played yet -- we're only going through the New Year's Day games -- but the list covers the bulk of the standout efforts and made for plenty of difficult decisions.

This isn't a look at the top NFL draft prospects, nor is it a preview of positional rankings you'll see from scouts. It's simply a look at the best efforts in a bowl game when taking into account a number of factors. Feel free to disagree in the comments or on Twitter by hitting up the @NFL_CFB handle. Without further ado, on to the rankings.
