5 College Football Bowl Haves and Have-Nots

3. Little Caesar's Pizza Bowl
Dec. 27 in Detroit
Purdue vs. Western Michigan
Congratulations, you're going to Detroit.

Yes, it's wonderful that college teams get to play in an NFL stadium such as Ford Field, but what does a team have to do to earn the "honor" of spending its postseason in a town giving itself over to urban farming?

If you're a Big 10, BCS-eligible school such as Purdue, you go 6-6 and make fans of your mediocre squad long for the days of Drew Brees. If you're Western Michigan, you have to play just well enough to miss your conference championship by a slight margin but just poorly enough to avoid losing said championship and playing on frozen blue turf in Idaho instead of in a heated indoor stadium.

Basically, if you're a college football team in a Great Lakes state with nothing better to do just days after Christmas, this might be for you.
