The lovely grassy space in the courtyard at Wiess. Acabowl is a blending and clipping of "Academic Bowl," a football game played annually in the courtyard at Wiess College during the 1960's, in which reportedly only "academs" had time to take part (from the old Team Wiess Website’s glossary at http://www.rice.edu/projects/colleges/wiess/college/gloss.html)
