10 Ugliest College Football Bowl Trophies
Fiesta Bowl Trophy
Apparently no one at the Fiesta Bowl has ever heard of the phrase, "Less is more." It's like someone made a trophy, then someone else stuck another trophy on top of it. And then someone else walked in the room and said, "Hey, you know what? We should put another trophy on top of all this other shit."
In all, this monstrosity measures 46-inches tall and weighs 200 pounds. It features marble, diamonds, silver, 19kt (yellow, green, pink and white) gold and is internally LED lit with illumination through the landscape, dome, Fiesta Bowl logo and the diamonds. Holy crap!

Alamo Bowl Trophy
Where have I seen this before? Oh, that's right. I have these same faux granite countertops in my kitchen.
Alamo Bowl: Texas (8-4) vs. Oregon State (9-3) – Dec. 29 at 6:45 p.m. ET
Independence Bowl Trophy
If you remove the name plates and put a candle in the vase, this is exactly what my grandmother's side table looks like in her living room. Exactly.
Independence Bowl: Ohio (8-4) vs. Louisiana-Monroe (8-4) – Dec. 28 at 2 p.m. ET

I got it! Let's glue three coat hangers together, stick a football on top and then paint the whole thing a shiny metallic color.
Gator Bowl: Northwestern (9-3) vs. Mississippi State (8-4) – Jan. 1 at 12 p.m. ET

It's a football. With a pineapple top. See what they did there.

Unless you're holding this bowl game at Superman's Fortress of Solitude, there's no need for crystals. No need.

New Mexico Bowl: Nevada (7-5) vs. Arizona (7-5) – Dec. 15 at 1 p.m. ET

What sort of hybrid trophy train wreck is this? It looks like someone took a trophy, sawed it in half, and then stuck an aquarium in the middle.
