Pac-12 likely leaving New Mexico Bowl
No more potential Arizona-Nevada shootouts for the New Mexico Bowl after 2013. The Pac-12 isn't likely to renew its contract with Conference USA probably filling that spot.
Looks like the New Mexico Bowl has only one more chance for a rematch of last year's wild Nevada-Arizona game.
The Pac-12 is not expected to renew its contract with the New Mexico Bowl when it runs out after this season, according to two sources. Conference USA will likely replace the Pac-12 and play the Mountain West Conference representative for the 2014-19 cycle, according to a source.
Arizona erased a 13-point deficit in the final two minutes of a 49-48 New Mexico Bowl win over Nevada in December that featured more than 1,200 yards and 70 first downs combined.
The Gildan New Mexico Bowl launched in 2006 out of one of my favorite places, Albuquerque (interesting side note for SEC fans: Houston Nutt now lives in New Mexico).
The Pac-12 is jumping on the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, so maybe that affected the New Mexico Bowl's chances to keep the league.
The Pac-12 and Big Ten on Monday will announce a partnership with the Holiday and Kraft Fight Hunger Bowls.
