So where will the Huskies go bowling in 2010?

Reading Steve Sarkisian’s comments in an ESPN.com story today that the Huskies will be spending the holidays in a hotel somewhere had me thinking it might be worth it to review the Pac-10-affiliated bowl games for 2010.
One thing to note — the official bowl lineup for next season has yet to be approved by the NCAA, so there aren’t official dates and times yet.
But here are the games with which the Pac-10 will be affiliated in 2010:
1 — Rose Bowl. Pac-10 No. 1 goes here, or to the BCS title game.
2 — Alamo. In the first significant change in the bowl lineup in years, the Pac-10 No. 2 will head to the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio to face a team from the Big 12 (and it isn’t necessarily the second-place team from the Pac-10 that goes here. Other than the Rose, the rest of the bowls simply get a choice of eligible teams in order of their selection, so the Alamo will have its pick after the Rose).
3 — Holiday. The Holidiay, in San Diego, now moves down a slot, with the Pac-10 No. 3 falling into this position to face a team from the Big 12.
4 — Sun. The Sun, in El Paso, remains in the lineup though now with a different other side of the bracket, with the Pac-10 now facing off against a team from the ACC.
5 — Las Vegas. This game, played obviously enough in Las Vegas, pits the Pac-10 against the winner of the Mountain West Conference.
6 — Emerald. The Pac-10 No. 6 selection heads to this game in San Francisco against a team from the WAC (with a contract that in later years could see Army or Navy as the opponent).
This is how the Pac-10’s bowl lineup will now look through the 2013 season as securing these spots was among the first things accomplished by new conference commissioner Larry Scott.
One the lineup is made official, I will pass that along as well.
