The 2020 Liberty Bowl is upon us. You may follow along in the embed below or by following this link. The team with the most combined points in Weeks 16 and 17 will be crowned the overall OIL champion, have their name engraved on the Tenequer Memorial Trophy, and receive a custom team mini-helmet.
PFC Commish and Dirty Dogs manager Scott Buehre will be taking home the Landrum Memorial Trophy once again. In the six seasons of the PFC, the Dogs have been to the Patriot Bowl four times, winning three. He defeated the Blue Falcons, who were attempting to become the first manager to go worst-to-first since . . . Buehre. The Dirty Dogs will face the Mutinous Apes and SoonerJack in the Liberty Bowl.
SoonerJack manager Jack Bruesch met Kevin Pyle's Lucky Enuf in the 2019 OIL Bowl with a chance to become the first OIL manager to win four championships. But it was not meant to be, and Lucky Enuf took home the Lawson Memorial Trophy. Undeterred, Bruesch regrouped in 2020, dispatched Lucky Enuf in the semifinals, and defeated DominationStation in the OIL Bowl to tie Pyle's record for championships. Congratulations, Bruesch. Good luck in the Liberty Bowl.
Over his first six seasons in the OIL, Mutinous Apes manager Walt Musselman won 21 games. He "boasted" a .269 winning percentage and averaged 3.5 wins per season. But 2020 was a crazy year. After a solid draft and astute in-season management, Musselman finished the regular season 8-5 before running the table in the playoffs, defeating the Brewmasters, War Pony, and top-seeded Negligent Discharges en route to their first AFC championship. Congratulations to Muss, who will now face the NFC and PFC champions In the Liberty Bowl.
