VIDEO: Illinois' Gatorade Bath Fittingly Caps Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl

Nobody wanted to watch the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl -- an assault on our senses between a 6-7 UCLA team and an Illinois team that lost its last six games to close the season. Both teams were .500 or worse coming in, and both fired their coaches before the bowl game began. An appetizing matchup, it was not.

Someone had to win the bowl and Illinois took home the honors in a game that was less than pretty. The Illini won, 20-14, but most of us were just glad it was over.

However, there was one highlight that serves as a metaphor for the game and Illinois' season. The Gatorade bath at the end of the game is a great tradition, but of course Illinois managed to botch it.

Via ParadigmShift35, who trolls hard with Nelly to end the video.

Congratulations on beating UCLA! The Bruins became the first bowl team to finish the season 6-8, which is worthy of Gatorade baths for all.
