Best Bowl Game Names

First Team All-Name

It’s that time to rank the best of the best when it comes to the best bowl game names. We’ve got 41 bowl games, but it’s a bit of a s

To be honest, I’m a bit disappointed in this year’s list. Back in my day, we had bowl games with incredibly long sponsors that announcers were obligated to use every time it was discussed.

I had expected to do a top 10, but with a weak field of candidates, I’ve narrowed the list down to five. It’s like a bad draft class, and everything is cyclical so I’m expecting big things from bowl game names in the 2019-20 season.

Without further ado, I now present First Team All-Name: Bowl Game edition.

Cheez-It Bowl

California vs. TCU

We were a little rough on these guys in the Bowl Game Swag article due to not offering players Cheez-Its in the Cheez-It Bowl. Regardless, Cheez-Its are an absolutely incredible snack. I know I’ll be throwing down handfuls of Cheez-Its while this game is going on and cannot wait for the opportunity.

Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl

Marshall vs. South Florida

As I stated in the college basketball tournament edition of First Team All-Name, if you put Bad Boy Mowers in front of just about anything, you’re going to have my interest. Not only that, but dads across America will be tuned in. Any time you can mix football with yard work, you just have to do it.

Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl

FIU vs. Toledo

I don’t exactly know what’s going on here, and I’m a bit terrified with the Makers Wanted part, but the Bahamas makes it okay. I’ve never been to the Bahamas and probably will never be to the Bahamas, but it sounds like a nice, relaxing place to be. Enjoy the Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl.

Camping World Bowl

West Virginia vs. Syracuse

This just takes me back to a time before we all went soft. When is the last time you went camping? Actual camping with a tent and all that. Boy Scout style. Now we’re all disappointed when the up north “cabin” doesn’t have a strong WiFi signal or the wall decorations are not to our liking. It’s disgusting. I’m very much guilty of this too, but dammit I’m going camping next summer and I’m gonna like it. Book your camping trip at halftime of the Camping World Bowl.

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl

Western Michigan vs. BYU

I really like the idea of putting the word “famous” in front of this bowl game. It’s a real power move, and it makes me think this is an incredibly important game. If we started adding “Famous” in front of everything we do at Deceptive Speed, we will probably increase our numbers by 0.0000001%, so it’s worth considering. Also, I ate a lot of potato bowls at the campus eating place in college. Very delicious.

In Memoriam

Two of my favorites that are no longer with us include the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl and the Beef O’Brady’s Bowl. Pour one out for each of them while you’re watching bowl games this weekend.
