No, the Music City Bowl is not quite the most significant bowl game around, but hey, when up until recently your team had the worst record in the history of college football, you take every bowl win -- let alone every bowl appearance -- with joy. Moreover, this was the first time in school history that Northwestern has won two bowl games in back-to-back seasons. Mind you, that's not unexpected considering that they had a 45-year stretch when they didn't even play in a bowl game.
It was a bizarre game, filled with oddities, but...hey, it's a win. So, again...Huzzah!
