Is this the College Bowl television game show he’s watching?
MIT actually has a pretty good football team. Caltech doesn’t have one though (picture a team full of Sheldon Coopers). The joke of course is that they hacked the computer rankings in their favor.
Now this would have been a fitting fate for the BCS.

Nice Keith Jackson “Whoa Nelly” reference, anyways.
I don’t know when this was originally published, but we just had “semi-final” games (Rose and Sugar bowls) and the championship game is on the 12th, so the BCS has changed.
“Wait, what’s that on the scoreboard? We can’t show that on national TV!”
It’s just a game…
Although MIT may have a pretty good football team now, Caltech beat them in the 1984 Rose Bowl Scoreboard 38-9:
