OK, UC football, and a bowl game are not to be spoken in the same breath, let's jump into the WAY WAY WAYYYYBACK machine, and start a little fun game. Let's see how many bowl games some of you neophytes can name. Let me begin.
Rose, Cotton, Sugar, Orange...EASY.
Fiesta, Citrus, Tangerine, Cactus, Gotham, Freedom, Bluebonnet (later ASTRO-BLUE BONNET), Holiday, Hula, Peach, Sun Bowl, Liberty, Independence......
OK, Have at it.

The San Francisco Bowl! it became the Hunger Bowl (?) and then the Foster Farms Bowl and now it's the Redbox Bowl!

This bowl has been renamed so many different times it's literally UNRECOGNIZABLE and this is considered a good thing for the bowl!

As this topic suggests, the value of qualifying for a bowl game has been as watered down as having a handicapped parking pass.

The benefit of a bowl has always been the extramontu if practice and ability to judge returning talent to help determine recruiting priorities and off-season depth chart building.
