Pac-10 nearing agreement with Alamo Bowl

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

Looks like the Pac-10 is trying to move up in the bowl world.

If the deal is completed, the Pac-10, starting in 2010, would send its No. 2 team to the Alamo Bowl against a Big 12 foe. The Holiday Bowl would then drop a spot and get the No. 3 Pac-10 team, while the Sun Bowl would get No. 4.

Bet the Holiday Bowl and Sun Bowl aren't thrilled.
