Odds are, it won't happen. I enjoy football in bad weather, however, that same bad weather that makes the game more interesting causes huge problems for travel, which could hurt attendance. Remember it's a bowl game so people are going to becoming from far away most likely

A bowl game outside in the north would need two powerhouse teams because if it involved two crappy teams nobody would go.

Why do you enjoy football in bad weather?

I'm going to the Baylor-Texas game tomorrow, and it is going to RAAAAINNNNN
Nothing enjoyable about getting rained on to me... I'll probably still enjoy the game though.

Most of the cold weather bowls are inside, I think, but usually they are the ones involving the smaller conferences. It would be a big money loser for a major bowl to go in this direction.

I've never been into the excuse about one team having an advantage because it was located in their region or state. If a team can't win in a hostile environment they aren't good enough to win a title, period. And there have been plenty of major bowl games where the "hometown" team has lost, so it's not like it's impossible to overcome.

See for people in the south cold weather is a deterrent. Just look at nfl games is lambeau field sold out in playoff time same for chicago, cleveland and buffalo. If its a good product people will watch.

There are already bowl games at cold weather sites - the Pinstripe Bowl at the new Yankee Stadium in New York and the Military Bowl at RFK Stadium in Washington.
