Goodbye San Diego, Hello San Antonio

The Pac 10 and Big 12 are getting ready to dump the Holiday Bowl as its showcase bowl match up and put the Pac 10's runner-up team and the Big 12 #3 team in the Alamo Bowl

The San Antonio-based bowl is boosting its payout to $3 million per team - which is $650,000 more than the Holiday Bowl will pay. The change will take effect after the 2010 season, and it is expected to kick off several bowl tie-ins.

First of all the Holiday Bowl will be saddled with the #4 Pac-10 team and the #5 Big 12 squad, because the Insight Bowl (in Tempe) is expected to up its payout enough to move up to the #4 slot in the Big 12 bowl tie-ins.

The Big 10 gets dropped by the Alamo Bowl, but will probably pick up a tie-in with the Gator Bowl.
