Comprehensive 2022 Bowl Intrigue Rankings

My annual bowl intrigue rankings have certainly caught on, as now most all major college football websites and publications have a similar 1-41 pre-bowl ranking of each game. I have taken the average of the most prominent of these rankings (mine, Yahoo, Sports Illustrated, Washington Post, College Football Network, CBS, and Athlon) and ordered them to create a more objective ranking of each of these 41 games. Check out these rankings below:
