College football bowl schedule: Popeye’s, famous potatoes, and Boca Raton, oh my!

New, 25 comments

There should always be college football on every day of the week.

This is a good time of year, what with the vacations and the holidays and various meats in large quantities being consumed. Also football, there’s football. Weekday football, hooray!

The bowl schedule gets underway in earnest this week, as there is at least one game every day, leading up to the tripleheader on Friday. These are not all good matchups, mind you, but having some mediocre college football is a lot better than having none college football, in my opinion.

The over/under on the Boca Raton Bowl game Tuesday night is currently at 79, so this one might be fun. Always hard to tell how a team in the midst of a coaching change like Western Kentucky is going to react emotionally, though.

(Skip on past the Miami Beach Bowl, as that was yesterday, which was yesterday, and as such has already transpired.)
