And odds are, it won't be a Texas school in the game. The weather will be beautiful. But, the midwest would've worked better for travel for the fan bases.
In other post-season college football news, the Miami Beach Bowl will be moving to Frisco, Texas after being purchased by ESPN. Considering it wasn't in Miami Beach, maybe they'll name it the Frisco Beach Bowl.
