LSU Vs. Alabama Attracts All Of The Bowl Games

Among the hundreds of credential requests for Saturday night's matchup between LSU and Alabama were the following two curious organizations.

The Pinstripe Bowl is a matchup of Big East and Big 12 teams. So it totally makes sense that a representative would be at LSU-Alabama to scout teams for a possible invitation.

And there's this one, which is kind of adorable.

Maybe, just maybe, if catastrophe happens one of these two teams will fall all the way to sixth in the SEC. And just in case, the Gator Bowl is ready. Gotta get that scouting in!

The bowl system is so stupid.
