4. Arkansas vs. Louisville: The Bobby Petrino Classic (Atlanta, GA)

As if the “I’m not going to Hawaii, so quit asking!” Bowl was not awkward enough, try this Hog on for size. Let’s pin the two college teams Bobby Petrino is best known for coaching against each other in the NFL city that hates his guts more than anything in the world. The Bobby Petrino Classic pits the Hogs vs. the Birds With Teeth inside of Uncle Arthur’s Billion-Dollar Sphincter!

Why would the co-founder of The Home Depot willingly let the man who quit on him in 2007 back into his good graces? Well, Point Blank, it is not like the Atlanta Falcons have any clue how to sell out their stadium anyway. Half-full and going nowhere, Mercedes-Benz Stadium is full one random Saturday in the fall after the Chick-fil-A Classic with rabid Razorbacks and crazy Cardinals.

The tag line for the event would be oh so very Atlanta. “It is okay to leave the game early in the fourth quarter to beat the traffic, as long as you don’t wreck your hog, bro!” Although there will be barbecue and pizza available at the concession stands, the only thing that really matters from this game is Chick-fil-A will be open. You can never have Chick-fil-A when the Falcons play on Sunday!

There have been far worse things to happen on a football field inside the city of Atlanta previously.
