The PapaJohns.com Bowl marked the return of post-season football to the city of Birmingham, which previously hosted the Dixie Bowl from 1947-1948, the Hall of Fame Bowl from 1977-1985, which Kentucky went to in back to back years 1983-84 (Kentucky beat Wisconsin in 1984 as a 4 point underdog) and then it became the All-American Bowl.
The SEC has played in one BBVA Compass bowl and lost. South Carolina lost 20-7 to UCONN January 2nd, this year.
Who plays Kentucky in this game – would you like to see Louisville?
If not then who?
