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!
