Not near a TV to watch the big bowl games? Then tune your satellite radio (what you didn’t get one for Christmas?) into XM Channel 140 this week for the Fiesta Bowl, The Orange Bowl, The Sugar Bowl and The Rose Bowl on ESPN radio.

ESPN Radio's BCS coverage begins with The Tostitos Fiesta Bowl at 4:30 p.m. ET January 1, pitting the Colorado Buffaloes against the Oregon Ducks from Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona.

The Nokia Sugar Bowl begins immediately following the Fiesta Bowl, at approximately 8:30 p.m. ET Jan. 1, and features the Louisiana State Tigers versus the Illinois Fighting Illini from the Superdome in New Orleans.

At 7:45 p.m. ET Jan. 2, The FedEx Orange Bowl will match the Maryland Terrapins against the Florida Gators from Pro Player Stadium in Miami.

The Rose Bowl presented by AT&T will decide this year's college football champion. The unbeaten and top-ranked Miami (Fla) Hurricanes will battle the Nebraska Cornhuskers from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California., beginning at 7:45 p.m. ET January 3.

College Football broadcasts are only one small step by XM towards becoming a programming giant. Radio Industry trade publication, Inside Radio, points at XM adding 40,000 watt terrestrial radio repeaters to augment their satellite coverage of musical, news and other content in major cities. With no or very few commercials and over 100 stations of content, XM seems to be picking up momentum as a consumer electronics success story in its early going. In the coming years, XM tuners will be integrated into stock car radios. In the mean time aftermarket devices are readily available at the biggest audio-video dealers and car audio stores.
