NCAA Approves 35 Bowls Over Next 4 Years
 
Quote:

Two new bowl games approved

INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA has approved 35 bowl games for the next four years, including two new ones: the Dallas Football Classic and the New Era Pinstripe Bowl in New York.

The NCAA said Friday that the bowls were licensed on a four-year cycle for the first time, though they will be reviewed each year. The move puts the licensing schedule -- from 2010-11 through 2013-14 -- in line with the length of bowl conference agreements.

The first Pinstripe Bowl will be played at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx on Dec. 30. It will include the No. 3 team in the Big East and the No. 6 school in the Big 12, excluding Bowl Championship Series participants.

The first Dallas Football Classic at the Cotton Bowl is planned for New Year's Day 2011, involving the seventh-ranked team from the Big 12 against the sixth-ranked team from the Big Ten. Future games will include Conference USA.

Bowl applications were denied for the Cure Bowl in Orlando, Fla., and the Christmas Bowl in Los Angeles.

Guess this could be a sign that we won't see a football playoff for awhile.

We might as well give the bowl losers trophies now too. Bowls are ment to be rewards for a good regular season.

"Three games under .500? Sure we can find a game for you."

Bowl games are only meant for solid teams, not 5-7, 6-6, or even 7-5 teams.
