Bowl spotlight - Jim Donnan, a Bronco and a Beaver walk into a luau

Jim Donnan's career closed out the same moment the old Oahu Bowl did, on Christmas Eve in 2000. It was just the third game for the bowl, but it was the last in Hawaii before it became the now defunct Seattle Bowl.

Georgia meanwhile, brought a coach that was on his way out for another rematch with a popular post-season opponent in Virginia. The Bulldogs provided Jim Donnan with a big win over the Cavaliers, 37-14.

For Donnan, "Aloha" also meant goodbye.
But today we have the Aloha Bowl, featuring another team in transition in Boise State going up against Oregon State. I've got the Beavers covering. Just don't think the Broncos will be up enough for the feast.
