5 College Football Bowl Haves and Have-Nots

Stocks in this article: DFSALLPEPCOFGIL

2. Famous Idaho Potato Bowl
Dec. 17 in Boise, Idaho
University of Ohio vs. Utah State
$750,000
This bowl exists in a negative universe where, somehow, getting dragged out to Idaho in the middle of winter is considered a reward for getting hit at full speed for an entire season.

Think we're overreacting? Consider this tweet from University of Ohio punter Paul Hershey upon finding out his team was picked to play in this bowl after losing the Mid-American conference's championship game to Northern Illinois:

"Idaho?? Who the f--- wants to play there in December??"

That's the punter talking. You know, the guy who doesn't even need to be on the field for the majority of the game. If the guy who can sit under a pile of blankets for most of the game doesn't want to make the trip across the Midwest for your bowl, just imagine the kind of grumbling coming from the guys who'll actually be in those 41-degree-and-below temperatures for whole shifts at a time.

If this doesn't motivate a team not to lose their conference title game the following year, few things will.
