There were five huge games on display for college football fans to enjoy on Tuesday as the New Year’s Six bowl games went down.

The action started with a spirited battle between Iowa and Mississippi State that got off to a slow start but turned into quite the exciting finish. It ended when Texas and Georgia took the field in New Orleans Monday night.

In between it all, Ed Orgeron went full Nick Saban as his Tigers battled UCF, and Texas Longhorns mascot Bevo nearly gored UGA mascot Uga, who just wanted to say hello.

Here’s a look at everything we learned as the first day of 2019 also marked the end of college football’s 2018 season, minus the title game next week.
