The Red Raiders will be home for the holidays for the second year in a row.

If this offends you, then turn away. Sometimes, the "smart" of a losing season is just what's needed to bring a team some motivation to turn things around. A new year, new recruits and some valuable reps for the returning players means anything could happen in 2020.

So, Raider nation, have a sense of humor and check out this list of five good things about the Red Raiders not being in a bowl game this year.

  • 1

    Now the team can enjoy Coach Wells' "Well Alright Potato Salad."

  • 2

    Plenty of time to braid Jett Duffey's Hair

  • 3

    No early morning workout. Instead, It's wake and bake with the Macy's Parade.

  • 4

    A little breast, a little stuffin', more time to enjoy girlfriend's muffin

    No more pretending the "Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl Presented By Bridgestone" means anything
