Sugar Bowl Preview

The Sugar Bowl is not part of the College Football Playoff semifinal this year, but it’s still a good bowl to be in as it features the fifth-ranked Georgia Bulldogs, who are 11-2 and the fifteenth ranked Texas Longhorns, who are 9-4. Two big name schools and some great coaching makes this game a must-watch chess game as there will be a lot of schematics left and right and it will surely be a bloodbath till the end with all the positional talent.

VRBO Citrus Bowl Preview

I knew there was a bowl game that I forgot about, it used to be known as the Tangerine Bowl, which was turned into the Florida Citrus Bowl in 1983. WOW !!!!…Where was I ?? Because I clearly remember the Capital One Bowl from 2001 until 2014, and then it was CompUSA, Ourhouse.com, and then it was sponsored by Buffalo Wild Wings a couple of years ago. Overton’s sponsored the game in 2018, now it is sponsored by VRBO, a vacation rental marketplace and will be hereby known as (for now) the VRBO Citrus Bowl. And out of all of the non-College Football Playoff bowl games, this game has the highest payout per team at $4.25 million. That’s more money for the Big Ten and Southeast Conferences, Now that we got the identifications out of the way, it’s time to discuss this game.

Hey !!!!! …Whoever came up with the incredible idea of having a bowl game in the Bahamas has to get some kind of award. We appreciate you and in the 2018 College football season has blessed the Florida International Golden Panthers and the Toledo Rockets with a ticket to paradise…kind of. Thomas A.
