It looks like we should be getting our passports ready

A consensus seems to be solidifying around the prediction that the Scarlet Knights, and we their fans, will be heading north of the border at the beginning of January to take part in the International Bowl in Toronto. This is the message in today's update of the bowl predictions, the Scarlet Scuttlebutt blog, today's Star-Ledger, today's Home News Tribune, CBSSportsline,, etc., etc.

That's not to say that you have to stop putting your own bowl preferences and/or predictions in the sidebar poll. There's always the chance that another bowl will jump at a New York-area team with what that means for TV exposure and fans who travel well (especially if that New York-area team were to massacre a certain school from Kentucky [which isn't Kentucky] on ESPN this Thursday night), but we're just saying that it looks like a passport might be needed for the Knights' last game of the season, so make sure yours is in order.

I don't like the fact that we'll be playing a MAC team like Bowling Green or Miami (not from Florida) if we head north, but I do like the fact that the bowl, like the Texas Bowl last year, is not named after a muffler joint or a corporate pizza chain. And I like the idea that we'll get to sing "O Canada!" before the opening kickoff.
