Bowl season is that special time of year when exciting college football games take place all across the country and Gatorade showers are the war cries of victorious teams.

But not every bowl game inspires greatness and captures the hearts of millions. Maybe the hearts of hundreds, but those are people who are likely asleep on the couch having accidentally left their TV on.
