Pac-10 has new bowl partner

The Pac-12 is adding a new bowl game.

The conference, which is adding Colorado and Utah to the old Pac-10 starting in 2011, has agreed to send a team to the New Mexico Bowl in 2012 and 2013 to play a Mountain West Conference opponent.

This year's New Mexico Bowl is on Dec. 18. It will pit a MWC team vs. one from the WAC.

The agreement requires approval by the NCAA's licensing committee, which is a formality.
