Here are some old promos for bowl games that were syndicated:
I mean, don't you miss the days when a bowl game could be on "Channel 46"?
And my beloved Channel 11 got in the game, too. After the New Year's Run portion of this clip, hear the sounds of "Dancing in the Dark" as WPIX hypes the upcoming "Blue Bonnet Bowl." And, man, when was the last time anyone on TV referred to TCU as "Texas Christian"?
Finally today, I posted this before, but I love it so much I am sharing it again. Hugo Faces, the great account that gave us that WPIX video, uploaded this clip from 1984. I didn't remember WOR being a major college football player, but they had the Aloha Bowl! I wonder if they ever had the short-lived Garden State Bowl.
