    Interesting stuff! SEC/BIG10 v. Pac12 in new Vegas Bowl (finally some SEC matchups). Also, ACC v. Pac12 in Holiday Bowl. I will be sad to see the BIG10 team go from this game…ACC football is not nearly as interesting to me as BIG10. I would rather see the SEC/BIG10 reps split between the Vegas and Holiday Bowls, so that there is a SEC matchup every year.

      I get what you are saying, but we already have a bowl matchup with the B1G in the Rose bowl

        MOAR B1G is always better

        also Holiday Bowl and Foster Farms bowls are typically B1G vs. PAC12

    This is awesome, I think everyone assumed that the LV Bowl would be moved and get a better pecking order, but the matchup against a top SEC/B1G is great.

    I’m honestly surprised the SEC is willing to send a team outside of the south for a bowl game.

    And, the LA game taking place of the Las Vegas bowl matchup Pac-12/MWC champion is a step up as well.

      Any time you can step from a college stadium to a brand new NFL stadium is a huge upgrade. Too bad about the Holiday bowl downsizing.

    Is there any indication as to when the Las Vegas Bowl will be played?  Pre-Christmas is lame.

      Unfortunately that’s the reality of having a bowl in Vegas. Since it has be held early anyway, they should make it the kickoff to bowl season.

    I’ve be checking the net. Nothing on the 2020 Las Vegas Bowl dates or payouts. If aligned with the Belk Bowl, the dates should push to the right, say Dec 28th/29th, and a payout approaching $4.5 – 5 mil.
