More bowl stuff

If the Las Vegas Bowl has made a decision of any kind, it is not ready to stay so publicly. Not that there should be an expectation that it would — bowl committee members have said all along it would take to the weekend to make a final decision and announcement.

But just in case, and given the rumors of the last 24 hours, I checked in again today with Mark Wallington, who handles public relations for the Las Vegas Bowl.

He said the bowl held a committee meeting last night but that no firm decisions have been made on choosing either Washington or Arizona.

He said they are “still going back and forth” on which team to choose and answered “no” when asked if the bowl is leaning in the direction of one school or the other.

“I do know there are supporters (on the committee) of both schools and it’s an ongoing process,” he said. “Last year we were looking at picking between 6-6 Arizona State and 5-7 UCLA, so it’s great this year to have so many good candidates to choose from.”

Wallington noted again that nothing can officially be done until the BCS releases Boise State and also picks a second Pac-12 team (Oregon). It’s assumed both will happen, but until those things do happen — and that wouldn’t figure to come until at least Saturday, after all weekend games are completed — nothing can be put in writing.

“There are still lots of moving parts,” he said.
