Fans sometimes use the phrase Toilet Bowl to refer to a football game that is particularly poor in play quality, generally college football. While this name is certainly not official, it does bear mentioning.
In professional football, particularly the National Football League, the term Draft Bowl is occasionally used for this sort of game, as the two teams are often "competing" for the first overall selection in the next year's NFL Draft, which goes to the team with the worst record in the league.

The term Toilet Bowl is also jocularly used to describe a non-prestigious bowl game or as the "only bowl game (your least favorite team) will be playing in". It also describes a mythical bowl game in which a bowl ineligible team will supposedly be playing in at the end of the season (usually said to be located in Kohler, Wisconsin), in reference to the abundance of bowl games in Division I football.
In the spoof movie The Comebacks, Heartland State University ends up playing in the Toilet Bowl for the South-Southwest Championship.
