Alamo Bowl Gets Bump Up

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The Alamo Bowl will be the Pac-10's top game
after the Rose Bowl starting in the 2010 season.

Organizers announced a four-year deal replacing the Big Ten's fourth team with the Pac-10's second one on Friday.

The Big Ten has faced the Big 12 since 1995 after Pac-10 teams played in the bowl's first two seasons.

This season's game, the last one for the Big Ten is Jan. 2. Previously, Pac-10 teams who missed the Bowl Championship Series played in San Diego's Holiday Bowl.
