The federal government shutdown for many of us outside the Beltway amounted to a message on a website saying the agency we were looking up was closed Monday.

But the game was enough of a success out of the box that the executive director of the game is talking about a more constant presence in the bowl game for the Tigers now that they’ve made their first appearance in the 59-year history of the game which began in Philadelphia.
