The bad news continues for playoff proponents as the bowls continue unabated to succeed. On that score, this week, the Fort Worth Bowl extended its agreement with Conference USA for four years through the 2009 season. That game will match up teams from Conference USA and the Mountain West Conference.
For those with more tropical vacations planned, the Hawaii Bowl signed a four-year extension with Conference USA and the Western Athletic Conference. Under the deal, however, next years game can include a bowl-eligible 6th place team from the mightly Pac 10.
When in Hawaii, do you really want to spend time watching the 6th place Pac 10 team take on a member of the WAC???
