The list seems to be growing based on teams opting out. The following bowls have been canceled:

Bahamas (Conference USA vs. MAC)
Fenway (the Montgomery Bowl this year)
Hawaii (Mountain West vs. AAC or Conference USA)
LA Bowl (Pac-12 vs. Mountain West)
Las Vegas (Pac-12 vs. SEC)
New Era Pinstripe (ACC vs Big Ten)
Quick Lane (Big Ten vs MAC)
Redbox (Big Ten vs. Pac-12)
San Diego County Credit Union Holiday (ACC vs. Pac-12)
Tony the Tiger (ACC vs. Pac-12)
Tropical Smoothie Cafe Frisco Bowl (AAC vs. Conference USA)

Add to that expectations for the Military, Independence, and Guaranteed Rate Bowls to be canceled.

News flash: stupid bowls that no one cares about are first to get the Big Flush.

Gasparilla Bowl canceled.

This currently leaves Conference USA champion UAB without a bowl to play in, at the moment.
I do hope that they’ll pick up a spot, the way that Army did when we pulled out.

I’d be happy to watch teams with genuinely successful records play in a bowl.

Tonight is the first time the canceled bowls hit me. I'm not a big NYE guy and I usually stay in and watch whatever bowl game is playing that night. Even if I go somewhere I usually end up watching the game there.
