  • Trivia

    • The other bowl choices were Gator Bowl or Peach Bowl (which should have been Chick-Fil-A Bowl). While the former bowl had an agreement to host a Big 12 team at the time of the episode airing, the latter did not. Likewise, the Rose Bowl Game also does not have a partnership with the Big 12, but has hosted Big 12 teams on four occasions - Nebraska in 2002, Oklahoma in 2003, Texas in 2005 and again in 2006 (all but Nebraska won).

    • As the Nebraska convoy heads north, they pass a "Welcome to Oklahoma" sign by the side of the road. The actual Oklahoma state line runs along the south bank of the Red River, and the sign should be next to a bridge across the river.

    • Tagline:" Wrap him up college boy!" -Peggy

    • Bobby may not know much about football, despite being on a team, and seeing games before, but it almost seems as if he's never been introduced to the sport before.

  • Quotes

    • Hank: Remember that day you discovered cake could be made out of ice cream? This will be better.

    • Bobby: (on their cheap stadium seats) The birds flying below us are blocking my view of the game.

    • (The guys are in their nosebleed seats at the game)
      Bill: I'm dizzy!
      Dale: We're so high up because of those damn luxury boxes! They're ruining football! And possibly baseball too but it's hard to tell.

    • Peggy: Hank, we are not getting an HDTV. It's too life-like. Luanne would be walking into it all the time.

  • Notes

    • Hank lists the Holiday Bowl as a possible bowl for the Longhorns following their loss in the Big 12 Championship Game. The 2007 Texas Longhorns football team actually ended up playing in the Holiday Bowl where they beat Arizona State.

  • Allusions

    • Dale: Bigfoot, Loch Ness Monster, Jack Ruby, caught and stuffed, every one.
      Jack Ruby was the man convicted of killing Lee Harvey Oswald.

    • Title: An allusion to the 1957 film classic The Sweet Smell of Success with Burt Lancaster and Tony Curtis. The film features a character who yearns for the trappings of wealth that he can see but not afford.
