The Spectator: How Many Bowl Games?


It’s getting out of hand. At last count there were almost 80 Bowl games scheduled to be played in the good old U.S.A. in December and January. Even football teams with losing records like 7-9, 5-8 are involved.

When I was a kid, there were five Bowl games. The top one was the Rose Bowl, followed by the Sugar Bowl, Cotton Bowl, Orange Bowl and Sun Bowl. Now we have the Quick Lane Bowl, the Idaho Potato Bowl, the Cactus Bowl, the Music City Bowl, the Dollar General Bowl, the Poinsettia Bowl and the Peach Bowl, to name a few.

Here are my selections for some future Bowl games and some that might have been held in the past that we didn’t know about!
