Birmingham Bowl

  • Who? #21 Cincinnati (10-3) vs. Boston College (6-6)
  • Where? Legion Field in (you guessed it) Birmingham, AL.
  • When? 3pm EST/12pm PST, ESPN
  • Why? Because 10-1 Cincinnati lost the AAC by losing to Memphis in consecutive weeks and because Boston’s 5th-most-productive rushing offense was just good enough to offset their bottom-5 passing defense.

Gator Bowl

  • Who? Indiana (8-4) vs. Tennessee (7-5)
  • Where? TIAA Bank Stadium in Jacksonville, FL
  • When? 7pm EST/4pm PST, ESPN
  • Why? Because Indiana hasn’t posted a winning season since 2007 (and hasn’t won 9 games since 1967), so the fanbase inexplicably decided that #9WINDIANA was going to become a thing this season...and they’re one win away from making it happen. And because Tennessee miraculously turned a 2-5 season into a 7-5 season.
