NCAA Football: New Mexico Bowl-Central Michigan vs San Diego State Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Monday again. In what should be the Monday of Week 1 of college football, instead it’s just Monday of another week. Nevertheless, the latest news and update are found below.

Everybody makes a bowl?

It may finally happen. In the age when people complain about participation trophies and seemingly every makes a bowl game, the latter may literally be true in 2020. There are 42 bowl games, with one bowl who was cancelled their bowl this year. That means there are 82 available bowl spots for the 76 teams playing FBS football this fall. It begs the question, should all teams play in a bowl game, regardless of their record? It doesn’t sound like the majority of college programs are on board at this point, but the discussion is continuing.

Cowboys men’s hoops keep working despite the unknown.

Like everyone else, the Wyoming men’s basketball team have no clue what’s in store for them this season, or even if they end up playing. They know they are on the clock now that football has been cancelled. The team is on campus, working hard to improve during their usual off-season workouts, and preparing as if they will play. But at the end of the day, who knows?
