Bowl Games

Does anybody plan on going to any bowl games? I"ll be at the New Orleans Bowl rooting for a North Texas win over some CUSA team. No opponent has been chosen for the game as of yet. It's an awesome experience, unlike any regular season game. You should check it out if possible.

My wife and I follow Auburn wherever they go for bowl games, except we will not follow them to the Orange Bowl if that scenario arises. First, we've heard too many negative things about the Orange Bowl, and second, we want to be in Auburn should they happen to win.

Well, considering I'm a South Carolina fan, I don't think I will be now. Although, I will say that going to a bowl game (even when your team isn't in it) can be great fun.

When my wife and I lived in Corpus Christi, Texas, we drove up to San Antonio for the Purdue-Oklahoma State Alamo Bowl. Spent the day in SA and then caught the game. The atmosphere in the city was awesome. Just something about competing crazy football fans taking over a city that adds to the experience.

I'd highly recommend checking out a game if it's near you. You can probably even score cheap tickets outside the gate, as bowl games nearly always have guys looking to unload massive quantities of tickets.

The idea of being at home if your boys win it (go SEC!) is a good one, but I wouldn't have any reservations about going to the OB. The game is actually played at Joe Robbie/Pro Player/Whatever they're calling it now -- it's not even in the Orange Bowl or even in Miami, for that matter.

I was there for the South Carolina-W. Virginia Carquest Bowl (yeah, not exactly the MNC, I understand) and didn't have any problems at all. Stadium is right off the interstate and the area around it isn't anywhere near as bad as some places I've been.

I will be wherever Cal ends up playing. Hopefully that will mean a trip to the Rose Bowl, but it can get no worse than the Holiday Bowl. Go Bears!

I'll be heading down to Charlotte to watch the Heels in the Contenintal Tire Bowl. Yes, it is a bowl named after a tire company, and it is only 3 or so years old, but hey its better than having to decide whether to travel to the blue field at boise state. Haven't been to a bowl game yet, should be fun after such an up and down season.

Go Heels!

Thanks for information about Miami. It's all moot anyway, since my wife just informed me today that if Auburn were playing on the moon for a national championship, she would be there with me or without me. So, if Auburn squeeks past Tennessee and gets a miracle from the BCS standings, then I guess I'll go to Miami.

If Auburn's at the Orange Bowl, I plan to be there. I've considered going even if they don't win, and holding up a sign like "I'd rather be watching Auburn".

I've been to the last two Outback Bowl's.

Big Ten vs. SEC

Usually a good game. I say usually because last year was bad for SEC and Florida fans.
Iowa - 37, UF - 17.

Wisconsin vs. ???? this year.

There is nothing like the atmosphere of college football.

Hopefully for you, it will be in the Alamo. That is a fun bowl and the city does it up right. The Independence Bowl sucks. By the way, were you at the OSU-A&M game this year? I made the trip to Stillwater and had a blast. Most everyone was cool to us and Eskimo Joe's was awesome after the game.

it looks like Texas will be in a BCS bowl after all (most likely the Rose Bowl)... which bumps A&M up to the Cotton, Okie State to the Holiday, and Texas Tech to the Alamo Bowl.

Yeah I was there, we didn't or couldn't play at that game at all. For some reason we just didn't show up. Yeah Joe's gets pretty crazy game day,

I'm a South Carolina fan, so I'm still pretty bitter about the whole "We're taking ourselves out of bowl consideration" thing.

I do think it would have been funny, though, if there weren't enough bowl-eligible teams to fill all the bowls. Apparently that very nearly happened this year.

Due to unfortunate events concerning the BCS, I will now be attending the Holiday Bowl instead of the Rose Bowl. I'm still excited about Cal going to a major bowl game, but very much disappointed that its not the Rose Bowl. Well, at least its good to know that Cal will finish the year with a bang, I could easily see them drop 50 on Texas Tech.
