I watched some of the Camellia Bowl (while working tonight).. It turned out to be a decent, competitive match-up. Middle Tennessee beating Arkansas St 35-30.
I think the Raycom' Camellia is a newer Bowl (played in Alabama), so they got two relatively regional teams for it.. The crowd looked pretty good for an early Bowl.

Looking forward to future Camellias..

"...the game is owned and managed by ESPN Regional Television (a subsidiary of ESPN) and sponsored by Raycom Media...The game features teams from the Sun Belt Conference and the Mid-American Conference..."

yeah.. I think the pairing of two Southern teams helped the Camellia's attendance & potential development.
I know a lot of the Mid-American is spread over the Midwest. Raycom Camellia Bowl isn't really the Grand-daddy of 'em all, they may struggle getting fans to travel down from Michigan, etc (?)

I like the wide range of Bowls, so I'm rooting for the Camellia.. peace.

well being addicted to college football we watched every single game, pretty much from start to finish except for the one that was not on TV. I went 5 and 1: damn Middle TN state had no business winning.

Will watch on New Year's day. Pretty sure Clemson will take it all the way.

Watched Ohio win the Bahamas Bowl earlier today. Ohio's O-Line completed dominated UAB in the trenches. Wide, gaping holes for Bobcat runners to move thru, etc. Even tho the final wasn't close (41-6), I was basically entertained. Bahamas is a cool spot for a Bowl. Nice reward for coaches & players who worked hard all year.. They showed some of the team playing with Dolphins, etc. It seems more fun than playing a December Bowl in Idaho or Michigan. Something else (subtle) I liked- the helmets had small American & Bahamian flags displayed on 'em. I'm a geek for uniforms; thought that was a nice touch.

The inaugural Bahamas Bowl (2014) is actually one of the wildest & greatest comebacks I've ever seen in college football.

well my wonderful start last Sat has taken a quick fall. I have gone from 2nd in our family pool which consists of 13 people to tied for 5th with about 5 others: Ohio didn't help me one bit.. Thank God Wyoming showed how to play football

On the frozen tundra of Yankee Stadium, Iowa (one of my favorite programs) beats BC in the Pinstripe Bowl (27-20).

A good, but relatively uneventful, game. Weather conditions hampered both passing games.. I think Iowa's QB finished the game w/less than 100 passing yards.

Nice finish for the Hawkeyes..

Unless it is for gambling interests, I don't understand how anyone can watch most of these worthless bowl games.
