Get Your Popcorn: 40 Bowl Games to Take Place in 2015
Next year, we'll see the first four-team playoff ever in major college football. Yet somehow, it hasn't managed to destroy the bowl system at all.
Au contraire, folks, it has actually helped, if anything. In 2015, there will be a record 40 bowl games, after the addition of The Cure Bowl in Orlando, which will feature teams from the AAC and Sun Belt conferences.
There were only 28 bowl games in 2004-05, so that makes for a 43% increase in 10 years. That's pretty ridiculous, really.
Congratulations to fans of the bowl season. The playoffs will most certainly not hurt your precious bowls. If anything, it will continue to help them.
