One of the greatest traditions in college football began just two years ago at the Duke’s Mayo Bowl. The Duke’s Mayo Bowl bath is something that Sickos look forward to each and every December.
Over the course of the last decade or so, sponsor baths have become an integral part of the college football bowl season. While smoothie baths, french fry baths and Cheez-It baths are all awesome, none of them compare to the greatness that is the Mayo bath.
The concept is simple— whichever coach wins the Duke’s Mayo Bowl gets 4.5 gallons of mayonnaise dumped upon his head. The game also donates $10,000 to the charity of his choosing.
Seeing as mayonnaise is not easily dumpable, the exact science of the bath took two years to perfect. And when it went down last year, controversy proceeded to unfold over Maryland head coach Mike Locksley’s choice of headwear during the bath.
