College football has a new silly bowl game name that fans will have an endless amount of fun mocking in the years to come. The Belk Bowl is now the Duke’s Mayo Bowl.

The name change was announced Thursday morning with a funny short video featuring former Boston College and Carolina Panthers star linebacker Luke Kuechly.

ESPN’s Brett McMurphy shared some details about how the Duke’s Mayo Bowl will determine its teams.

But the real news here is the name itself. Duke’s Mayo Bowl. There are so many fun things about this. Here’s how the sports world reacted to this glorious new bowl name.

Not everyone was super excited about the name, though.
