It looks like there might be 4 more bowl games next year:

http://espn.go.com/college-football/sto ... bowl-games" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I'm okay with the bowl games as they favor the smaller conferences.Though i kind of wish that the american conference wouldn't get 3 more spots.I eoulf have liked to seethe Sun Belt get a spot in another bowl.(not just 1 more)I would have liked to have seen a Sun Belt vs MWC is Austin.(or C-usa vs MWC there instead of at Tucson)

Can't wait to see some 5-7 teams face off ! Talk about "junk sports"....

Symptomatic of too many all-sports cable networks with too much empty air time.

I guess bowl game #43 is envisioned as better TV than something like "blind-folded X-treme badminton"....

The MAC and Sunbelt will probably be filling many of these slots--it's doubtful that the American is going to qualify 9 teams. The MAC and Sunbelt usually have spare 7-5 and 6-6 teams that they can send.

Yet they have higher ratings than NBA or NHL regular season games going on at the same time. And most early round NCAA Tournament games. So there's that.

It looks like we're go on Orlando, Tucson, and Austin (sorry Little Rock)
