Bowl update

Sounds like it will be a few more hours before the Huskies will officially know where they are heading for their first bowl game since 2002.
The Alamo Bowl has just announced that bowls that have BCS eligible at-large teams will wait until 5:30 Pacific Time to make their announcements. That’s so they can wait until the BCS makes its official announcements just in case their are any surprises that make a team available that hadn’t been expected.
The Alamo Bowl is still officially deciding between Arizona and UW for its Pac-10 choice.
I was asked a little while ago by a Twitter follower for my gut feel on it and I guess I’d say the Holiday for the Huskies just based on how the Alamo reps last night seemed to be warming more to the idea of taking Arizona despite its four-game losing streak.
As for opponents, Missouri and Oklahoma State are most likely but don’t forget that Nebraska is now in the mix for both the Alamo and Holiday, as well, after losing to Oklahoma last night.
It’s unlikely either bowl would want to rematch UW and Nebraska but stranger things have happened, and the Holiday will be in a position of not having any choice about its Pac-10 representative, which rests solely on taking whichever team is left after the Alamo makes its decision.
If the Holiday decided it wanted Nebraska — which has a great reputation for traveling, as was evidenced when the Huskers played here in September — it might value that over any worry of a rematch either with UW or Arizona (that was the matchup in the Holiday last year). This will also be the last year Nebraska would be available to the Holiday since it is leaving for the Big Ten after this season.
For now, though, the Huskies have to sit and wait.
