Yep, there’s a bowl game happening in the Bahamas right now!

Central Michigan and Western Kentucky, both 7-5 teams, got to spend part of December in the islands.

This is, without question, a regulation college football game taking place that is both viewable on ESPN and in the Bahamas.

BUT WAIT. IT GETS BETTER.

The first 4,000 fans at today’s Bahamas Bowl get to try Popeyes new “secret” product. It may or may not contain hints of ghost pepper.

Bowls have happened in Cuba, Japan, and Canada before, but it’s been a long time. And none of those games were sponsored by Popeyes.

And — fun fact! — it’s not even the first college football game there this season:
