OSU-Washington might be the unhappiest bowl of 2014

It’s also one of the more uneven ones.

Bowl season is now upon us and OSU is headed to Tempe (for the wrong Tempe bowl, might I add) to play Washington.

According to Football Study Hall this is the least happy of all 38 bowl games. Their reasoning:

Bowls bring together teams that are ecstatic about going bowling and teams that have no interest in continuing their season.

Let’s rank happiness by comparing bowl teams’ current F/+ ratings to their preseason projected ratings. Which bowls feature overachievers? Which feature teams that had far greater visions for 2014?

It’s also supposed to be one of the least competitive as Washington is No. 51 in F/+ and Oklahoma State is No. 68. That’s reflected in the Vegas line.

The funniest part of all of this is how many OSU fans actually are excited about going to a bowl at all.

Such is the roller coaster ride that is a college football season.

August 1: Cactus Bowl sounds great!
September 1: If a few things happen we could backdoor into the Cotton Bowl, guys.
October 1: If a few things happen we could backdoor into the Playoff, guys.
November 1: We’ll play in a dot com bowl we don’t care just let us play a 13th game.
December 8: Cactus Bowl sounds great!
