How college football bowl games fit in 4 different Major League Baseball stadiums

Four of college football’s 40 bowl games this year are in MLB stadiums. Most major stadiums are multi-purposed in some fashion or another, but football games in baseball parks is a weird match. It requires fitting a 120-yard-long rectangular peg into a diamond-shaped hole. It doesn’t always look natural.
