    Thanks. I see I just think that would have been an intriguing match up and good TV.

    I know but as someone who grew up in Big 10 country, the Bowl games were always about traveling somewhere and the whole week of festivities not just the game. It's still odd to me that Miami doesn't get that chance.

    Ask some of the people on here. UCF should have been a playoff team. They are such a great team. UCF is going to get waxed by 30.

    I agree. I think it's a much better matchup for UCF as well. UCF could keep it somewhat close with Miami. They will get a swift trip back to reality against Auburn.

    I think back in the day they relished getting teams on their home field with a huge fan advantage...face it would you rather spend time out of school in Tempe or on South Beach. I think Miami was fine with staying home all those years in the Orange Bowl.
    I understand trying to get out of the frozen tundra of the B1G come bowl season...

    Just a slow clap for a job well done. I get it, you have zero respect for UCF or any G5 teams.

    Yep they need to have their own championship. Have 3 levels of division 1 football. No more independent teams and force ND to join a conference.

    Neither of those teams do anything for me.
