After posting a 7-5 record season, the Central Michigan Chippewas knew they’d most likely be receiving a bowl game invitation – the biggest question was where they’d be headed. The MAC has affiliations with seven different bowl games, so there were a number of possibilities. The team’s coaching staff decided to have a little bit of fun with the whole concept.
Sunday, before all of the bowl games were public knowledge, the Chippewas’ coaching staff put together a video with the logos of six bowl games – the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl, the Boca Raton Bowl, the Quick Lane Bowl, the GoDaddy.com Bowl and the Popeye’s Bahamas Bowl. As they played music from Jeopardy!, they slowly removed logos. In the end, it was down to the Quick Lane Bowl – hosted in Detroit – and the Popeye’s Bahamas Bowl – hosted (obviously) in the Bahamas.
You can tell by their reaction which one was the answer.
We can’t blame them. Going to the Bahamas in late December sounds fantastic.
