College football, get ready for a very weird 2020 bowl system

Banner Society: As the 2020 FBS season kicks off this evening, only two changes have been formally put into place for bowl games. The first came on July 15, when the NCAA announced that teams could count two wins over FCS opponents towards bowl eligibility instead of the usual one.

At the time, two entire FCS conferences had canceled or postponed fall sports, and eight others have joined them since the announcement, leaving the Ohio Valley, Southland, and Southern Conferences as the only FCS leagues playing football this fall.

The second change? The cancellation of the Redbox Bowl on July 31, leaving our nation without a reliable source for horribly inaccurate bowl shirts.
