    Kraft Fight Hunger and Holiday Bowl. Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl is moving to the 9ers new digs in Santa Clara from AT&T Park, too.

    I really don't see much upside for the Pac-12 for this one. I would rather have them play a bowl against every major conference rather than 3 against Big 10 foes.

    Yea, mix it up a little bit. The bowl season is one of the rare chances you get to have intersectional matchups.

    interesting play from a TV stand point for the Pac-12, the one good thing it does is lock up our relationship with the B1G, if we were to lose that to say the SEC the Pac-12 could get very regional.

    I see where that may go and you do have a point. For the time being, the Big 12 and the SEC married each other with their "Championship Bowl" or whatever they called it.

    I was thinking we gain zero benefit from a recruiting exposure standpoint while it improves things for the Big 10. However, I wasn't taking the TV markets angle - for television markets, it may go the other way, IMO.

    Big thumbs up for this move. This increases our chances of playing B1G teams in bowl games. I don't think the SEC is interested in playing in bowl games west of Texas.

    The Holiday bowl had pitted the 12PAC against a BigTex conference team. I kinda like removing them from the tv and recruiting exposure in the Cali area.

    Admittedly don't have them all memorized like I used to with all the shuffling, but would like to see the Pac facing the ACC and SEC in some bowls. We'll be seeing plenty of the B1G already.
