    Default The Official 2017-18 Bowl Season Thread

    Yeah BYU is not bowling this year, but we may as well have a thread for bowl season chat.

    My other team (Texas) is 6-6, but most of those losses were close games, at least two of which were in OT. Rumored bowl opponents: Utah or Texas A&M. Both would be fun matchups.

    Agreed... either one of those teams would be great for Texas to stomp into the ground.

    I would have to think that the bowl director would chop off both testicles to be able to get Texas and Texas A&M.

    Similar to what the Las Vegas bowl did to align Utah and BYU two years ago.

    Absolutely. This is for the Texas Bowl, btw. In Houston.

    Take note, other Utes. This is why JIC is the best of your lot. As much as he loves Utah, he is rational enough to know that no one outside of Deseret (or in-state with a high enough ACT score) wants to watch Red Devils.

    I'd definitely go to a UT verses Utah Texas bowl, decked in burnt orange, because going to your rival's games decked out in your teams colors is gauche.

    So there is a new Div I FBS bowl in the DFW area...



    Up at the Toyota Stadium which isn't a bad little venue.

    It seems this is where BYU would have gone if we had Sark for the OC this year.

    It's all for the best. No way we could beat all those teams at the same time.

    Spoke too soon. They missed a FG. Now UCF with 28 seconds to make it happen.

    Clemson’s reward for being the best team in the country is having to play the next best team in the semifinal. Hard to justify seeding it differently, but I think UGA and OU are by far the weakest 2 teams in the CFP.

    I love Boise State minimizing their risk of losing by going for it on fourth down.

    Great stuff. When are announcers going to do the math and start calling out punting and FGs on fourth and short as the far riskier strategies? (If the risk you are talking about is risk of losing.)

    Boyzee is driving in the red zone, have the wonderful idea of replicating their famous Statue of Liberty play, fumble the ball and Oregon returns it for a TD. Ensuing kickoff, Boyzee throws a bomb down to the 5 yard line and then next play throw a 100 yard pick six. Two defensive TDs in 30 seconds.

    LOL @ Boise for getting burned on one of their own trick plays.
