Agreed. If both teams are not in conference championships, neither is probably ranked. No hype. Meaningless game. Would basically be an exhibition game.
Although, on the other hand…isn’t that exactly what a bowl game is?
No a bowl game is where a few people form a committee and take cash bribes from local hotels and ticket agencies and then force schools to make a choice of telling players their season is over or agree to terms and add to the schools debt by giving them hotel and ticket quotas.
Good point. Also would be tough for bowl games/CFP committee even if allowed.
I don’t blame UTSA either, they want that game to be played and don’t want to advertise for a game that may/may not be played. Tough situation.
