Screengrab Snafu: ESPN promotes the Rose Bowl…two days after the game?

Someone in Bristol would love to fire up the DeLorean tonight, as for the second-straight evening, ESPN ran an on-screen graphic hyping a bowl that had already been played. This one came during the broadcast of the Fiesta Bowl, and hyped the Jan. 1 Rose Bowl: 

Brad Nessler was reading a promo for ESPN's coverage of the FCS championship game between Sam Houston State and North Dakota State when the above graphic aired on the screen. It's not as if the network's merely getting ahead of everyone else and hyping next year's Rose Bowl either, unless they're extremely confident that the Badgers and Cardinal are going to be back. No, this is just an unfortunate error on their part. Either that, or someone in Bristol's a massive Cher fan…
