JV footy bowl season is upon us, chock full of games between teams you weren’t sure existed, from conferences you’ve never heard of, playing in bowl games that you’re sure the broadcasters are pulling out of their asses, because that’s not a real company sponsoring this supposed bowl game. I mean, why is Enron sponsoring a bowl game for 2017? Doesn’t Enron no longer exist thanks to that whole insider trading? Remember when the government actually held companies accountable for their actions rather than give them carte blanche? Should I stop making this Enron joke now?

Anyway, we’ve got a quiz. It’s simple, really. Below is a list of bowl games. It’s up to you to determine which ones are real and which ones are made up. And not only which ones are real, but which ones are CURRENT bowl games? There might be an old bowl game or two in there to trip you up! *Pours one out for the greatest bowl game name ever, the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, good night sweet prince.* And of course, no looking these up on the Intertubes. Although we’re going by the honor system, so I can’t say there’s any penalty for doing so. Anyway, ready? Go!

Bourbon Bowl
Celebration Bowl
Ocean Spray Cranberry Bowl
Olive Garden Bowl
New Era Pinstripe Bowl
Heart of Dixie Bowl
Miami Bowl sponsored by Denny’s
Verizon Avocado Bowl
Belk Bowl
TaxSlayer Bowl
American Standard Bowl
Genesis Motors Amity Bowl
Beef O’Brady’s Bowl
Famous Idaho Potato Bowl
AutoNation Cure Bowl
Dollar General Bowl
Cheribundi Tart Cherry Boca Raton Bowl
Raycom Media Camellia Bowl
Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl

Answers will be below. Eventually. You should probably have time to try it for yourself, right?

I believe they are all real. What else are those corporations going to spend their new tax savings windfall on?

I really miss Poulan WeedEater as the sponsor of the Independence Bowl.

Also happy that the Rose Bowl features the traditional Big 10/Pac12 matchup of Georgia and Oklahoma.

The American Standard Toilet Bowl should pit the two worst teams against each other, losing program gets the death penalty.

Ah, the bowl of a 1000 names.
I think they really nailed it this time though. This one will stick…

Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl.
Formerly Beef O’Bradys’ Bowl….we also would have accepted Bitcoin Bowl or Magic Jack Bowl.
