The bowl games are trying to move on. The Rose Bowl won’t be played in front of fans, and other bowls have decided not to go.

Bahamas (Conference USA vs. MAC), Fenway (the Montgomery Bowl this year), Hawaii (Mountain West vs. AAC or Conference USA), LA Bowl (Pac-12 vs. Mountain West), Las Vegas (Pac-12 vs. SEC), New Era Pinstripe (ACC vs Big Ten), Quick Lane (Big Ten vs MAC), Redbox (Big Ten vs. Pac-12), San Diego County Credit Union Holiday (ACC vs. Pac-12), and Tony the Tiger (ACC vs. Pac-12) are taking the year off.

And then there’s another weird twist. The Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl was supposed to be a Big 12 vs. Group of Five matchup, but now it’s the Pac-12 vs. SEC.
