Bitcoin has come to college football by way of BitPay. The already hilariously named Beef O’Brady’s Bowl will now be known as the Bitcoin St. Petersburg Bowl. That’s right, a cyber currency bowl. The name of the new bowl will be a constant reminder of another way in which college football players will not be paid. The game will be played on December 26 this year, so mark your calendars.
As for the Beef O’Brady’s Bowl… In my mind it joins an elite list of defunct college bowl game names with the Cigar Bowl (1946-1954), the Refrigerator Bowl (1948-1956) and the Salad Bowl (1947-1951).
