Earlier this week, I was wandering around on the internet, as I sometimes do, and I came across a post by Jason Kirk on the SB Nation college football page, which stated that there may be additional bowl games added in 2020.
He got this information from Brett McMurphy, who seems to be the first to release this news flash:
It has also been reported on Myrtle Beach Online, who also quotes McMurphy. The number that jumped out to me is that 65% of college Division I teams would play in a bowl game if this comes to pass. Quite a change from the early 70s, when the Big Ten would only permit ONE team from the conference to play in a bowl game, and that of course was the Rose Bowl.
I don’t know about you, but while I love college bowl season, having the number grow to 43 games is starting to sound a bit ridiculous.
