C-USA to Play in Bowls in Boca Raton and the Bahamas

August 20, 2013 at 10:45p    by DJ Byrnes    

Who will be the first team to tank the last game of the season to ensure their trip to either Boca Raton or the Bahamas and not the Beef'O'Brady's? My money is on the University of North Texas. (Have you ever been to North Texas? No? Exactly.) 

It's also good to see the bowl system won't be crippled by the playoffs. This does, however, open the Pandora's Box of bowl games being played in foreign countries. How long before the Moon Bowl is announced? 

By the way: EVERYONE IS GOING BOWLING in the near future.

The ticket prices better be low. Nobody is taking a flight to watch that game.

I absolutely love the Caribbean.  If the Bucks aren't playing in the playoffs and/or Rose Bowl - I say shoot for the Bahamas.  
Edit:  As soon as the B1G gets on board with destination bowls.....stupid CUSA.

So Conference USA is playing a game in another country?

38 bowls? That's ridiculous. 126(?) fbs schools and 76 get to go bowling in '14... Bowl games are supposed to be a reward for having a good season, not for participating. All about $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

The Bahamas?!  I can envision the UAB fans breaking out their swimsuits already.

What is this "UAB Fan" you speak of. I've only heard of them in fables.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

At this point, I'm sure we could turn Eat Too, Brutus into an official bowl game if you guys want to.

Don't give up... Don't ever give up.

Sorry but I don't think there will be a Moon Bowl until Newt Gingrich gets elected President. So I guess never.

Moon Base then Moon Bowl?  Sponsored by NASA, SpaceX, the USO, and the Giant Moon Laser company?


Hey, these guys played on the moon so it can't be too ridiculous can it?

Still waiting for the New Orleans bowl to become the Raising Cane's Bowl

So with 38 games, that means 76 teams get into a bowl game. What's the new standard, 4 wins?

Only a few more bowl games need to be created before my flag football team becomes eligible!!

Will SMU be in C-USA?
If so, the bowl game in the Bahamas might be convenient for some heirs of former Texas oilmen. They can take an island vacation, watch their Mustangs play in a bowl game, protect some of their assets in an offshore account, and pay off their Caribbean bookies on the same trip - it's one-stop shopping.

SMU will begin play in the American Athletic Conference this year

I heard the WAC is getting together with the Ivy League and starting a Bowl game in New York. It will be called the Sopranos bowl! The 2 teams that kill a BCS team's chances at one of the other bowls gets in!

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

Another ignorant comment by the "staff." Ever been to North Texas? No? exactly! Ahhhhh I actually got married in Denton, Tx. (About a mile way from UNT campus) Its actually a great place. A very cool, small historical town. Please keep to buckeye news....and stop putting down places you have never been!! Just shows a lack of knowledge. 

You are lame if you tweet!

What in the world...this Bowl game stuff is out of control.  Conference USA...really?  I honestly thought it was a typo...thanks for clarifying.

Some people think we’re the hunted.I don’t feel that way at all.We’re the hunter.Everybody wants an angry football team.Everybody wants a team on edge and a hungry team.If you’re a hunter,that usually equates to being hungry.

Here's the real burning question in all of this - what the hell stadiums are there in Boca Raton and the Bahamas for bowl games?

Class of 2010.

FAU got a new stadium in Boca

Is there a stadium in the Bahamas that will actually hold enough seats for a bowl game?   

bigbadbuck's picture

its a 450 acre sports complex. its got 15,000 parking capacity, a recreational park, velodrome cycling park, athletes village, American football, baseball and softball stadiums, a commercial strip and a dragway. I didnt get any info on how many the stadiums seat. I don't think that 15,000 is enough parking tho unless they shuttle people in


What are they going to do? Unload a couple of cruise ships to fill the stadium?
