Best atmosphere: The Rose Bowl is always great by default, so I am going with the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl between Nevada and Boston College. Some 30,000 Nevada fans packed the home of the San Francisco Giants to root on the Wolf Pack, who closed the best season in school history with a 20-13 win over Boston College. 'I would say this is probably the best atmosphere we've been in,' Nevada quarterback Colin Kaepernick told the Reno Gazette-Journal. 'The stadium holds 42,000 and it seems like all 42,000 were for Nevada.'There's not too much to say here. I would normally feel the urge to go into a tirade about the lack of support, but we have a whole off-season for that. And frankly, I can hardly find it in me to blame the "Eagle faithful" for not flying 2696 miles from the Bean to San Francisco. Not this year. Not with the way this team underperformed. Still, it kind of hurts to hear the opposing team's quarterback say a neutral site game felt like there were ZERO BC fans there. ZERO! Thanks to all the fans who made the trek. Hopefully a good time was had by all.

I came across this little gem while reading ESPN's Andrea Adelson's "Best, worst of non-AQ bowls."
