Well, the college football regular season is now over and all the conference championships have been played, so this means only one thing….IT’S COLLEGE FOOTBOWL SEASON! Along the lines of March Madness, this is one of my favorite sporting moments of the entire year. There are so many good games on and primarily all over Holiday Break.
Every year, colleges from around the country get to square off in one final football game to try and end their season on a high note – unless you’re one of the four teams who made it into the College Football Playoffs, of course.
As with every year, Daktronics is heavily involved with many of the bowl games being played this holiday season. Not only will many of the games have our LED displays showing live video, crowd prompts and sponsorship messages, but our services team will also be hard at work creating content and providing event support.
Starting this coming weekend and going through January 2nd, there are going to be roughly 39 different bowl games. Of these games, 31 will be played in venues that have Daktronics equipment. Our services group will also be providing event support at 21 of those bowl games to ensure everything goes smoothly during the game.
As for the College Football Playoff this year, the games will begin with the semi-finals at the Fiesta Bowl where No. 2 Ohio State takes on No. 3 Clemson at State Farm Stadium and the Peach bowl where No. 1 LSU is playing No. 4 Oklahoma at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Both games take place on December 28th with the national championship game to follow at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on January 13 – all venues featuring our products in some capacity.
While I’m looking forward to sitting back and watching as many bowl games as possible, I’m especially excited for the first two playoff games at venues featuring Daktronics’ main video displays. I’ve seen the halo and it’s more amazing in person, the pictures really don’t do it justice. I hope everyone else is as excited as I am for all the college football action and Happy Holidays!
