Pac-12, Mountain West discussing bowl game in Australia


First, college football has a bowl game in Hawaii. Pretty cool, but still in the United States. Last season, the FBS introduced the Bahamas Bowl, which is awesome and provided a classic football game that people are still talking about. What’s next? A bowl game in Australia? Oh wait, that may be happening.

According to CBS Sports, the Pac-12 and Mountain West Conferences are discussing having a bowl game take place “down under” in the future. Australian officials were in Arizona this week for the two conferences’ spring meetings and there have been talks of hosting a Pac-12 bowl game in Melbourne, Australia.

One of the biggest issues right now is what two teams would you invite to a bowl in Australia? You obviously can’t send the Pac-12 Champion. That team is usually going to be in discussion for the College Football Playoff.

It’s an interesting dilemma to have.

Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson had this to say: “We have to get down to who’s going to give up what. You can’t on this one say, ‘What if we don’t have enough (bowl-eligible teams),’ and then on Dec. 5 you can’t send someone to Australia. You’re talking about 1,000 passports, 1,200 passports.”

The bowl game is far from being official right now, but it would be awesome if a kangaroo hopped across the field at halftime. I have always wanted to go to Australia. Maybe I could pose as a player for Fresno State next season.
