Don’t Forget, the KRAFT Fight Hunger Bowl is Almost Here – Tickets Still Available for December 31st Game

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

There’s was some news conference yesterday that nobody told me about so oh well.

But find out all about it after the jump.

Now, which squad do you think will win on Saturday? The Bruins…

…or the Illini?

 

It’s like $25 for a cheap seat – you can afford that, right?

See you there!

It’s Official: It’ll be the UCLA Bruins vs. the Illinois Fighting Illini at the “KRAFT Fight Hunger Bowl” Dec 31 at AT&T Park

Monday, December 5th, 2011

See? This is the news that came out last night:

Get all the deets after the jump, but before that, see me try to puzzle out who would play from five days back:

The annual Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl (that new name is starting to sound normal to me already) is a coming to the Phone Booth on Saturday, December 31st, 2011.

Where else will you watch an NCAA bowl game in NorCal?

Oh, what’s that, you want to know who’s playing this year? Well, let’s look to the past:

2010 — Nevada 20, Boston College 13
2009 — USC 24, Boston College 13
2008 — California 24, Miami 17
2007 — Oregon State 21, Maryland 14
2006 — Florida State 44, UCLA 27
2005 — Utah 38, Georgia Tech 10
2004 — Navy 34, New Mexico 19
2003 — Boston College 35, Colorado State 21
2002 — Virginia Tech 20, Air Force 13

As you can see, sort of, there’s gotta be a Pac-12 team on the field – that’s current rule.

Here’s one stab at it:

“Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl 
December 31, 2011 San Francisco, CA, 3:30 pm ESPN 
Payout: $1.675 million
Pac-12 No. 6 vs. Army (WAC if Army not available)”

But it looks like their prediction has recently changed, based on this:

“Scout’s 2011 bowl prediction for the Illini has them heading out San Francisco to participate in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl. There, Scout predicts, the Illini would take on the UCLA Bruins, who would be 6-7 on the season and also likely minus its coach as well. Two teams with a combined record of 12-13 and without head coaches doesn’t exactly sound like the most appetizing match up, but such is one of the downsides of the current bowl system.”

So, as recently as yesterday, some people were thinking it could be this squad…

…versus this one, the crew from Illinois. (You know, they’re looking for men, as always.)

All right, see you there!

All right, all the deets after the jump

OMG, the First-Ever KRAFT Fight Hunger Bowl is Coming January 9th! Boston College Takes on Nevada

OMGUNRVSBCATATTONESPN! Nevada to Play Boston College at the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, Jan. 9th, AT&T Park

Monday, December 6th, 2010

OMG, UNR VS BC AT ATT ON ESPN! Well, here’s the news – the almost-perfect University of Nevada, Reno Wolf Pack (and 10,000 rabid fans from the Silver State) will be a coming to town to take down the Boston College Eagles at the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.

Check it:

Boston College, riding a five game winning streak* to close out the regular season, will face No. 13 Nevada in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl game at AT&T Park.  The 7-5 Eagles and 12-1 Wolf Pack will play Sunday, January 9, 2011 with a 6 p.m. /9:00 p.m. EST kickoff.  ESPN will televise the game to a nationwide audience.”

“Frankly, I don’t see how Nevada can lose.” Try using that line when you’re chilling at the UNR pre-game party at Pedro’s Cantina.

Anyway, http://www.kraftbowl.org/tickets/embl-tickets.html.

Here are your Boston College Eagles…

…and here’s that Wolf Pack from Nevada:

*That would match their recent five-game losing streak, would it not?

It’s tough to beat Nevada, which would have had a perfect season if it hadn’t had to play away at Hawaii this year.  I mean this is the same team that just beat (eventually) the (former #3) Boise State Broncos, right? There are just too many in the wolfpack, and QB Colin Kaepernick will be sure to connect like NYNEX, unless it’s snowing or there’s some other Act of Gaia going on or something.

All the the deets, after the jump.

OMG, the NCAA’s Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl is Almost Here: Who Will Play at AT&T Park – Boston College, Boise State?

The annual Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl (that new name is starting to sound normal to me already) is a coming to the Phone Booth on Sunday, January 9th, 2011.

The Hub has all the deets:

“The Sun Bowl and the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl, two bowl games with Pac-10 tie-ins, will likely be scrambling to find replacements for a Pac-10 team. Both Oregon (Pac-10 champ) and Stanford (automatic BCS at-large) appear to be BCS bowl bound, while UCLA and California became bowl in-eligible over the weekend. That leaves the conference with just three bowl eligible teams with two more — Washington (at Washington State) and Oregon State (Oregon) — needing a win in their final game to get to six wins. Of the two teams, only Washington seems like a sure thing to become the fourth bowl-eligible team from the conference. That Pac-10 will likely see their fourth bowl-eligible team, Washington, land in the Holiday Bowl, leaving the Sun, Las Vegas and Kraft Fight Hunger bowl scrambling to fill their bowl slots.”

San Francisco’s Annual Emerald Bowl has a New Name: The “Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.” Srsly

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Here’s the deal on San Francisco’s NCAA-certified Emerald Bowl (fka San Francisco Bowl):

“The Emerald Bowl is a post-season college football bowl game certified by the NCAA that has been played annually at 40,800-seat AT&T Park (home of the San Francisco Giants) in San Francisco, California, since 2002. At the time of its launch in 2002 as the San Francisco Bowl the game was one of two college bowl games to be played in baseball-specific stadiums.”

O.K. then. Well, the news of the day is that this football game has a new title sponsor, Kraft, and a new name, the “Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.” Seriously.

That’s right, the same folks footing the bill for Farmer Gavin’s 400 square foot Victory Garden are taking over the Emerald.

Look forward to this cheer squad coming back to town if USC plays in 2010 the way they played in 2009:

(And here’s a video of USC’s retro Yell Girls in Union Square last December along with a modern tune from the famous marching band. Enjoy.)

I don’t know, maybe this new name will grow on me, the way it worked with the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.

All the deets. Let’s hope for good weather on January 9, 2011.

SAN FRANCISCO, April 15 — The San Francisco Bowl Game Association, organizers of the annual college football bowl game played at AT&T Park, announced today that Kraft Foods will be the game’s new title sponsor for the next three years.  The game will be known as the “Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl” and will be part of a broader hunger relief program Kraft Foods plans to kick off in September in collaboration with Feeding America, the nation’s leading hunger-relief organization.
 
 
 
 

The Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl will be carried nationally in prime time by ESPN on Sunday, January 9, 2011, at 6:00 p.m. (Pacific), pitting teams from the Pacific-10 (PAC-10) and the Western Athletic Conference (WAC).  The game is one of college football’s most popular bowl games, boasting three sellouts in four years and annual television rating increases.

“This is a great day for our game,” said Gary Cavalli, the Bowl’s co-founder and the only Executive Director in its eight-year history.  “We’re proud and excited to partner with Kraft Foods, one of the most well-known and highly-respected companies in the world.”
