Won’t happen, and we aren’t above any bowl game in this conference. Until we as a university and a conference perform better in bowl games, we don’t really get to refuse jack squat. Additionally, our conference was overloaded with east coast bowl games, especially considering that five of the six Western Conference teams are on the Mississippi or West of it. This evens things out a little bit.
As a side note, I actually think soccer specific stadiums (SSS) would work better for the majority of bowl games. Usually, they hold between 20k-25k, have all chair back seating, and nice suites. More often than not, they are located in major metropolitan areas. It would put less strain on traveling fan bases to support their school, and less strain on universities to sell an allotment of tickets.
