That is odd but interesting. It sounds like a pearl of a bowl
Isn’t this year 7?
The Oyster Bowl used to be a bigger deal than it is now. One fun story from Oyster Bowl history:
The “12th Man Tackle” of Tom Rozantz - 1977
In October 1977, William & Mary met heavily favored East Carolina University in the Oyster Bowl (a regular season fund raising game hosted by the Shriners) at old Foreman Field in Norfolk. Late in the third quarter, William & Mary quarterback Tom Rozantz took off on an option run and appeared headed for what would become the game-winning touchdown. When Rozantz got to the 5-yard line, Jim Johnson, a portly 65-year old man, seemed to come out of nowhere and grounded Rozantz with a surgical, shoulder-first, cross-body tackle. But Johnson wasn’t an ECU defender. He was a Virginia Beach resident who was walking the sidelines as a spectator. A former ECU head football coach and athletics director, he apparently could not bear the thought of the Pirates losing the game. Impulsively, he lurched onto the field, and made the tackle that was carried nationwide by the Associated Press and “The NFL Today,” which showed video footage of the event. Game officials ruled the play a touchdown and William & Mary went on to win, 21–17.
So we are champions of a bowl already? Lol.
You’d all know this already if you read our lovely and thoroughly researched 2019 Charlotte 49ers Wikipedia page…just saying.
