It’s Bowl season in College Football. After two failures to play because of a little thing called COVID-19 in 2020 and 2021, the inaugural Fenway Wasabi Bowl will be played this year between Cincinnati and Louisville, and it’s one of the strangest Bowl games on the schedule for 2022. Cincinnati’s head coach, Luke Fickell, left the Bearcats at the end of the regular season for Wisconsin. Now, in a wildly awkward twist of fate, Cincinnati’s fatherless football program is playing Louisville, whose head coach Scott Satterfield will take over the program next year. This Bowl game feels a lot like divorced parents hosting Thanksgiving with their new significant others present: wildly uncomfortable for everyone else involved. Pair that with two teams that have incredibly similar and incredibly mediocre bowl histories, and you’ve got one of the most entertaining end-of-season games on the slate this year.

Cincinnati and Louisville haven’t played one another since 2013, when Louisville beat the Bearcats 31-24. Louisville was on and off at the end of the season, going 2-2 in their last four games, while Cincinnati only had three losses all season, with the third one coming in their final game against Tulane. Louisville is slightly favored in this game with a -1.5 favor from those grimy oddsmakers in Vegas, which gives the Cardinals way too much credit. Compared to the teams Cincinnati was facing all season, they had a Mickey Mouse schedule, and now Malik Cunningham is opting out because late in the season, the Louisville offensive line was about as effective in protection as the wallet that’s been sitting unused in my roommate’s wallet for the past year. Cincinnati played some legit teams this year, and they managed to hold them to an average of 186 passing yards per game. Cardinals’ backup Brock Domann to be able to beat that stat line would be a more unexpected turn of events than Kanye hosting a Hanukkah party for Hollywood executives this year. 

Make no mistake; this is going to be a fun game to watch. These two teams are pretty evenly matched, and there’s very little chance the game will be over by halftime. With that being said, though, Louisville’s been given a lot of props for reasons unclear to anyone who’s watched them play this year. It’s not the way they hoped the season would go, but Cincinnati fans will end the season happy with a victory in their Bowl Game this year.
