Big East Football Adds Two Bowls


The Big East is now guaranteed to send six teams to bowl games. That is, as long as six teams are eligible.

On Monday, the conference announced its aligning with both the International Bowl and Birmingham Bowl to go along with its four other bowl affiliations, including a BCS automatic qualifier.

For a league that barely sent four teams to the post season last year, this is a fairly surprising move. You’d think they would try to avoid the embarrassment of being unable fill out the bowl games they are affiliated with.

From the looks of each team’s schedule, the conference might luck out this year. Six teams will play at least one Division IAA school. Of the two that don’t, Louisville has an all important game at Temple and Syracuse hosts Wyoming.
