That said, the Cotton Bowl for several years kicked off at 10:30am local time. Someone may have to bite the bullet.
* A few calendar related items for next year's bowl schedule:
- Should start on Saturday December 19th. The Cure Bowl intends to be the first bowl game played.
- Expect no bowl games on the December 20th & 27th, plus January 3rd. These are Sundays where the NFL will be playing.
- December 26th and January 2nd could be two Saturdays where a bunch of games are set aside
- Both December 21st & 28th should have NFL Monday Night Football, so ESPN may attempt to schedule afternoon bowl games.
- 9/5: Deutsche Bank Championship, NASCAR from Darlington & Texas at Notre Dame - The golf tournament would only be on the 2nd round on Saturday as it has a Monday finish, so that probably stays on Golf Channel. The NASCAR race is scheduled to be on NBC and probably would air after Texas at Notre Dame.
- 9/19: BMW Championship & Georgia Tech at Notre Dame - The golf may be split between NBC and Golf Channel, assuming the football game is an afternoon game.
- 9/26: Tour Championship & Massachusetts at Notre Dame - Same as 9/19
