Bowl games are back after a brief Christmas hiatus, and today we got the Quick Lane Bowl, which was a thrilling battle between…Bowling Green and Minnesota.
Yeah, not exactly two powerhouse schools.
While Minnesota ended up winning the game over Bowling Green by a score of 30-24, apparently the announcers had their eyes somewhere other than the field.
The Golden Gophers were led on the field by senior quarterback Cole Kramer, who got his first career start during the bowl game. But it was his fiancée, Katie Miller, who got all the attention on the broadcast when the announcers couldn’t stop talking about their upcoming wedding.
And viewers were quick to call out the broadcast crew for their fixation on the Minnesota quarterback’s significant other:
modern ESPN truly believes viewers of a low level bowl game airing in the afternoon on a Tuesday care more about Katie Miller's upcoming wedding then they do the game tells you everything you need to know about today's ESPN. Feel sorry for her being mentioned 59 times.
