Podcast: Big Ten bowl selection process

I joined colleague Ivan Maisel earlier Wednesday on the ESPNU College Football Podcast, where we discussed the Big Ten's tiered system for assigning teams to contract bowls, a step by the conference to take more control of the process and create fresher matchups. We also discuss the league's postseason lineup for 2014 and beyond, which includes new bowls like the Holiday, Kraft Fight Hunger and Pinstripe. Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl executive director Gary Cavalli also joins the podcast.
