The Pac-10 has renewed its agreement with the Emerald Bowl through at least 2013.
The bowl, now in its eighth season in San Francisco, will match the Pac-10's No. 6 pick against top teams from the Western Athletic Conference, Navy and Army during the next four-year bowl cycle, starting in 2010.
The Pac-10 team's opponent will be the WAC's first, second or third-place teams in the years 2010 and 2013, with Army coming to San Francisco in 2011 and Navy in 2012.
So here's where the Pac-10 bowls presently stand.
Rose Bowl: Pac-10 No. 1 vs. Big Ten No. 1
Alamo Bowl: Pac-10 No. 2 vs. Big 12 (the deal hasn't been finalized but it's expected to be No. 3; Big 12 No. 2 goes to the Cotton Bowl)
Holiday Bowl: Pac-10 No. 3 vs. Big 12 (the deal hasn't been finalized but it's expected to be No. 5; Big 12 No. 4 is expected to go to the Insight Bowl)
Sun Bowl: Pac-10 No. 4 vs. ACC (either No. 4 or No. 5)
Las Vegas Bowl: Pac-10 No. 5 vs. Mountain West champ (or No. 2 if the champ earns a BCS bowl invitation)
Emerald Bowl: Pac-10 No. 6 vs. WAC Nos. 1, 2, or 3 or Army-Navy (WAC works with bowl to decide which conference team goes)
The Poinsettia Bowl will get the Pac-10's No. 6 team this year, but the bowl contract wasn't renewed.
