LARAMIE -- You are officially a bowl game junkie if you can tell me -- without looking it up -- where the Cure Bowl, Lending Tree Bowl and Celebration Bowl games are located?

Yes, two games have already been played. (That's my fault for not getting this story up in time.) UAB took care of Miami (Ohio) 24-20 Friday in the Bahamas and No. 24 Troy held on for the 18-12 victory over 25th-ranked UTSA.

Cincinnati and Louisville are already underway inside Boston's historic Fenway Park and six other postseason tilts will take place today, including two games featuring a Mountain West team. Conference champion Fresno State hooks up with Wazzu in the LA Bowl. Kickoff is slated for 1:30 p.m. MT.

Boise State and North Texas will tangle in the Frisco Bowl tonight at 7:15.

Oh, and go SMU!
