I-Bowl gets a date

The PetroSun Independence Bowl will be played on Sunday, Dec. 30, at 7 p.m.

The good news for the bowl is the game will be televised nationally in prime time by ESPN. Another good thing is the date isn't that close to Christmas to make it a problem.

Personally, I like day games. But I also understand the importance of playing at night with the most viewers, although I don't like the matchup against the NFL. A year ago the MPC Computers bowl went head-to-head with the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers.

Still, there have been worse dates.
