Central Michigan was pretty psyched to find out its bowl game would be in the Bahamas, and who can blame them?

What they and opponent Western Kentucky might not have anticipated, however, is how few people would be there to see it.

Watch the Bahamas Bowl's crazy ending

It's the first bowl game being played outside the United States and Canada since 1937, and it probably didn't help that it's on Christmas Eve. Popeyes' idea of a promotion didn't quite seem to help, either:

Western Kentucky wound up winning 49-48, but not before Central Michigan made a crazy, lateral-filled play to pull within a point.
