Another Bowl Game? 

 

This is why we should expand the FBS playoffs to 8 or 16 teams. So that irrelevant bowl games can finally start going out of existence.

The NCAA's goal is probably to have two 4-8 teams play each other in bowl games.

NCAA neither controls the bowl system, nor the CFP.

Half the problem with the amount of bowl games is ESPN bankrolling them so they can sell ad space. If ESPN were to no longer be under Disney's aegis, this might change.

The more bowl games we have, the more likely we have a 4-8 team in a bowl game.  We have already seen a few 5-7 teams play in bowls.

They need to kill one of the low performing bowls and move it here instead of adding another game altogether. Heck! Make this the FCS Championship site! It might sell better than some Chargers games!

Toyota Stadium hosts the FCS Championship through 2024 with an option for 2025. However, if North Dakota State is still dominant by then, their fans may want to travel to Los Angeles.

Or maybe North Dakota State ends up in the Mountain West by then.

The last part was sarcasm, but heck if you'll take 5-7 teams why not take FCS teams that are already eliminated from the playoffs? Joking of course, because a 5-7 big Ten or SEC team losing to a FCS semi-finalist in December would cause heads to explode.

Bowl games outside of the playoffs don't really seem to matter anymore.

Yes they do to the majority of the G5 teams. 

The New Year's Six games mean a lot to schools like the G5 invite, TCU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Arizona in terms of ticket sales.   Heck, Penn State and UW sell out their requirements for that Fiesta Bowl.

CBS, NBC and FOX all have inventory yet they have really yet wanted to fund?  Their mid-day talk shows and news must make more $$$ as opposed to selling a bowl game across affiliates.  

Ain't no more Mizlou Network to distribute Holiday and Bluebonnet Bowls in 2020.

Until literally every waking hour from the beginning of bowl season until the first round playoff games is swallowed up by bowl games, I would argue that there are not enough bowl games. Of course, I don't hate things existing for no reason.

Also true when the BCS existed. Except now there are three games with agreed-upon stakes instead of one.
