Don't Call  a travel agent today. Stay off Expedia.  The servers may be down for a while today, as U of L fans are busy re-booking airline flights from Florida to Charlotte, North Carolina.
 
A funny thing happened while some were counting their oranges, Cincinnati (and WV) won and now U of L is headed THE BELK BOWL.


 
 
The first question most people have is "BELK BOWL, what the hell is the BELK BOWL?"  It was started in 2002.  It's a bowl game named after a chain of department stores based in North Carolina.  It's played at Bank of America Stadium
 
It is also named "Ugliest Bowl Name" as it made it on the "Top 5 Worst Bowl Names for 2011-12" from college sports site BleacherReport.com  Yep it made TOP 5!  (entire list is here). 
 
And, not to add insult to injury, but THE BEEF O' BRADY BOWL (U of L won it last year 31-28) is also on the list.
 
But while some will make fun of the funky-named bowls U of L is attending, you can take some solace in the fact that U of L is the  ONLY team in Kentucky going bowling!
