Bowling season is here, and no, I’m not talking about the KSR bowling league.
Yesterday football fanatics got their fancies tickled when the 2018-19 bowl schedule was released. The following bowls all have ties to the SEC.
- Birmingham Bowl, December 22
- Independence Bowl, December 27
- Texas Bowl, December 27
- Music City Bowl, December 28
- Belk Bowl, December 29
- CFB Playoff, December 29
- Liberty Bowl, December 31
- TaxSlayer Bowl, December 31
- Outback, January 1
- Citrus, January 1
- Sugar Bowl, January 1
- National Championship, January 7
When college football nerds get a schedule, the next step is obvious: fill it in with teams. That’s exactly what the Sporting News did. However, they did not slate Kentucky in any of the bowl games with SEC tie-ins.
The Sporting News predicts Kentucky will play Army in the Military Bowl. This year’s game will be December 31 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Maryland. The Military Bowl has conference tie-ins to the ACC and American, but the Sporting News does not care about those silly conference tie-ins.
If this were to come to fruition, Freddie Maggard would be the happiest person on Earth…until he has to decide who he’s going to cheer for, Army or Kentucky?
