The Spartans are bowl bound (just barely). And their arch rivals The Wolverines are headed to a battle with Alabama that should be awesome. In total, 5 Michigan colleges are headed to bowl games and we've got the rundown here for you courtesy of WDIV/ClickOnDetroit.

No. 14 Michigan vs. No. 13 Alabama in Citrus Bowl

No. 13 Alabama (10-2, SEC) vs. No. 14 Michigan (9-3, Big Ten), Jan. 1, 1 p.m. ET

LOCATION: Orlando, Florida


Alabama 41, Michigan 14 (Sept. 1, 2012)

***No pressure at all Jim Harbaugh. But, Alabama has gotten stung by LSU & Auburn. Good luck Wolverines. You're gonna need it.

Michigan State vs. Wake Forest in Pinstripe Bowl

Wake Forest (8-4, Atlantic Coast Conference) vs Michigan State (6-6, Big Ten), Dec. 27, 3:20 p.m. ET

LOCATION: New York City


First meeting. And real talk, the Spartans are pretty lucky to be here.

Central Michigan vs. San Diego State in New Mexico Bowl

San Diego State (9-3, 5-3 Mountain West) vs. Central Michigan (8-5, 6-2 MAC), Dec. 21, 2 p.m. ET

LOCATION: Albuquerque, New Mexico


First meeting. First bowl game out of all of these. And real talk again, after that loss at Ford Field to Miami (Ohio) for the MAC Championship, I am really surprised to see my Chips actually in this game. Here's hoping they can make up for it on the national stage. San Diego ain't no joke. And CMU has lost in their last four bowl appearances.
