Like cliff diving or ferret ownership, football is an endeavor best watched from the sidelines. Witness acts of bodily bravery with today's Groupon: for $18, you get one ticket to the AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl between Air Force and Georgia Tech on December 27, held at Independence Stadium (a $37 value).
The AdvoCare V100 Independence Bowl, named as a tribute to the military presence in the Shreveport-Bossier City area, pits pigskin players from the Atlantic Coast Conference against their Mountain West Conference counterparts in a hard-hitting college football matchup. For this year's game, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (6-6) will take on the Air Force Falcons (8-4) in a battle between the two of the nation's best rushing attacks. Watch elusive Georgia Tech running back Anthony Allen try to outgain Air Force running back Asher Clark, who's been equipped by the military with helicopter blades to glide over Georgia Tech's linebackers. With a south end-zone seat, you'll watch the game from the quarterback’s perspective, without having the responsibility of leading offensive plays or maneuvering gracefully in shoulder pads.
