The BBVA Compass Bowl Drinking Game v3.0

Back by popular demand (and the fact that Pitt is stuck in the same bowl for a 3rd consecutive year), we are proud to bring you the third edition of everyone's favorite drinking game!

In the 2011 BBVA Compass Bowl, there was Dave Wannstedt, Phil Bennett, Mike Haywood.

In the 2012 BBVA Compass Bowl, there was Todd Graham, Keith Patterson, and Paul Chryst.

This year, there is still only Paul Chryst...but Pitt is still in the BBVA Compass Bowl.
