Welcome to the 2015 90 Degree Show Celebration Bowl! The bowl game to kick off the bowl season will be the champions of the Southwestern Athletic Conference in Alcorn State University, against the champions of the Mid Eastern Athletic Confernce in North Carolina A&T State University. We will talk about this matchup, what we thought about the game, what we thought about this year overall in bands and who we think will win the Honda. This bowl was a great experience on TV, but can we get the SIAC and the CIAA involved? We brainstorm about how we can add our two other conferences in a bowl game or ask should the teams play each other? This is our last broadcast before the Honda Battle of the Bands in 2016. Tonight we welcome the great Christy Walker and the owner and founder of Block Band Music and Publishing, Rashad Watters
