these could be the only Sun Belt teams bowling this season…Georgia State’s chances are not good and neither are South Alabama’s

Chantilly… urban sprawl name. It’ll always be the Mitylene exit to me…. but it’s at the east end of Eastchase sprawl. Taylor Road exit is at the west end of Eastchase. Same difference. Still doesn’t get us a Poulan WeedEater gift card!

David at least you know what you’re talking about instead of making fun of Montgomery. As as resident of Slapout (that’s right) I can say Montgomery has improved greatly over the past 20 years.

Good for the Commish to get these settled. More opportunity for school’s fans to travel/attend than waiting until a week from now and a bit more than a week before the games. Another big “miss” with these ESPN-only-interested bowls: they are held less than two weeks following the end of the season (except Army/Navy?).

Someone failed to list the Bowl Game for the Georgia Bulldogs. They have been invited and accepted to play in the Toilet Bowl in Flushing, ohio.
