The Brut Sun Bowl Selection Process
The Brut Sun Bowl will match up the Pac-10 Conference versus either the Big 12 Conference, the Big East Conference or the University of Notre Dame.
The Brut Sun Bowl selects the third place team from the Pac-10, who will be the visiting team in 2008.
The Brut Sun Bowl is in an agreement with the Konika Minolta Gator Bowl (www.gatorbowl.com) to alternate picks between the Big 12 and Big East Conferences with each bowl game having a one-time option to select Notre Dame.
If the Gator Bowl selects a Big East Conference school, then the Brut Sun Bowl will have the fifth pick from the Big 12 Conference. If the Gator Bowl selects a Big 12 Conference school, the Brut Sun Bowl has the second pick from the Big East Conference. If Notre Dame is not selected to participate in the Bowl Championship Series, then they would replace a Big East selection by either bowl game if bowl eligible.
In 2006, the Brut Sun Bowl selected Missouri, while the Konika Minolta Gator Bowl selected West Virginia. In 2007, the Brut Sun Bowl selected USF, while the Konika Minolta Gator Bowl selected Texas Tech.
