Friday’s Daily Briefing: Bowl schedule announced

Even if you don’t think FAU will be playing in a bowl game this season – and I hope you don't mind if we here at won’t write off the Owls until they are mathematically eliminated from bowl contention – the official release of the bowl schedule should be of some interest.

The Football Bowl Association announced dates, game times  and TV coverage for the 35 bowl games this morning.
Wait, scratch that. That’s 34 bowls that have set their dates, with one bowl yet to commit. Care to guess which conference is affiliated with that bowl? If you answered “The Sun Belt” you are correct.

I’m not sure why, but The Bowl in Mobile, Ala. Is the lone bowl game not to have its date set. It’s not necessarily that the management of the bowl has other worries right now, although it looks like that could be the case. It also could have to do with the NFL lockout and scheduling since the game is rumored to be played on Jan. 8, which is on a Sunday.
The Sun Belt’s other bowl game, the New Orleans Bowl, is set to be played at 9 p.m. on Dec. 17, which is a Saturday. The game will be televised on ESPN.
Here’s a link to the entire (except for the Bowl) 2011-12 Bowl Schedule in a printable format.

Nicely done Jake. Great addition to Owl Access.

Then who do you think has the uper hand to be three yard directly behind the center.

Sorry, I read the above question wrong. Who will be UNDER center? No one. They will operate primarily from the shutgun.
