Utah football will not play in a bowl game on Christmas

The official 2018 college football bowl schedule has been released and there will be no games on Christmas or Christmas eve. This makes a ton of sense because it puts too much stress on fans and players to travel during the holidays. No one wants to fly on Christmas day. I had to do it as a player at Utah in 2005 for the Emerald nut bowl and I hated it. Don’t make fans do it either. Here is the complete bowl schedule.
