looks like along with us getting the alamo bowl in 2010, the sun bowl has reached a new agreement with the acc. starting next season, the sun bowl will be the pac 10 #4 vs. the acc #5 instead of against notre dame/big east #3

so now

1.rose (vs. bcs/big 10 champ)
2.alamo (vs. big 12 #3)
3.holiday (vs. big 12 #4/5)
4.sun (vs. acc #5)
5.las vegas (vs. mwc #1)
6.emerald (vs. acc #7)
7. poinsettia (if needed, vs. mwc #2/3)

I think you have the Alamo and Holiday flipped as far as which Big XII teams participate.

If what you post is accurate, the PAC 10 will continue to play down to an opponent in every non-BCS bowl again this year (no offense MWC fans) except the Holiday, which will now finally be an evenly matched game.

So you're saying our #2 team could be playing the Big 12 #5? That does suck.

Well if we merged conferences like the SWC and the Big 8 did, or the ACC and the Big East did or if we added a major Independent like Penn St we might be able to even this thing up.

Let's face it, these conferences with there mergers added an ELITE school which makes that #2 spot a BCS bowl type player.

in the explanations and articles about the alamo bowl switch it said the alamo would be switching with the holiday bowl and moving up in the big 12 standings

I believe you, but do you mind linking it? I haven't heard about this. I also don't understand why the Big XII would punish its teams and fans by giving the higher seed a trip to San Antonio instead of San Diego.

Alamo Bowl = Higher Payout ($3M)
