Dabo had the choice of either bowl and he chose New Orleans because it was a better situation for the team and their fans to stay in the Southland. Probably an extra day of practice since the flight to the west coast is loooong! Doesn’t matter. N.O. Will be a great trip for everyone. I haven’t been since the mid 80’s but I remember it well! Is Pat O’Brians and Brennan’s still in business?
