Twitter Chatter: What in the world is BattleFrog?

There won't be tortilla chips at the Fiesta Bowl party this year.

The bowl game, which will feature Notre Dame and Ohio State on Jan. 1, no longer has Tostitos as its title sponsor. The bowl also isn't sponsored by Vizio, as it was last year.

Instead, BattleFrog was given the title sponsorship through an agreement with ESPN.

When the Irish were named as a participant in the Fiesta Bowl, I asked Twitter followers what they thought BattleFrog meant. The answers were entertaining.

For the record, BattleFrog is an obstacle race series that is described on its website as "one of the nation’s fastest growing outdoor fitness events."

We liked these Twitter responses better.

@TJamesNDI The only battle frogs I know are the BattleToads. Classic Nintendo #NDInsider
