Game will be televised on the NFL network instead of ESPN.

Also, note the Big East #4 may actually be BE #3 this year because of the Navy deal with the Tire Bowl.

The BE may switch around some lower bowls but they aren't going to be able to take anything better than a BCS conferences 4th spot. That's as high as they could go.

The bE certainly has a better bargaining position now but it's still limited because out of 'traditional' name teams from the BE (ie WVu, SU, and Pitt) neither Pitt nor SU travel very well and both stink right now.
