A few notes on this:

  • Arizona will now face Purdue at the Foster Farms Bowl.
  • Didn’t notice this either.  We have an all-Owl bowl game (Boca Bowl) and now an all-Wildcat bowl game with the Music City Bowl.  Wild.
  • Duke heading to the Quick Lane Bowl.  A bit of an odd ACC tie-in but oh well.
  • Back to FSU to the Independence Bowl (and as a bit of an aside), I wonder who will become the next coach there.  That is still a PRIME coaching spot and it should be coveted unlike, you know, the job in Knoxville.
  • Iowa State announced as Memphis’ opponent for the Liberty Bowl.  Should be interesting for the Cyclones basically playing a true road game.
  • No surprise that SMU will go to the new Frisco Bowl this year to stay close to home.  Surprised to hear very little on Chad Morris getting a P5 coaching opportunity.
  • Correction:  I said that New Mexico’s first bowl game in half a century would be the Arizona Bowl.  I meant to type New Mexico State.
  • Kansas State going to the Cactus Bowl.  Odd they would send one of the more northern Big XII teams to one of their most southwestern bowl tie-ins.
  • USF headed to the Birmingham Bowl.  Another odd move with a couple Florida-based bowls having AAC tie-ins.
  • Wyoming-Central Michigan set for the Idaho Potato Bowl.

The next update should be the last.  But we shall see.  Bowl bid season is a funny time.
