Another Seattle Bowl in the offing?

Posted by Bob Condotta

Rumor is that the Pac-10 athletic directors are holding their regular late-summer meetings in Seattle and on the agenda is hearing a presentation from a group that would like to bring another bowl game to this city.

A new Seattle Bowl is apparently being propsed by the Seattle Sports Commission, with the group reportedly wanting to get some assurance it would have the support of the Pac-10.

The Pac-10 currently has contracts with seven bowls, a list you can find here.

The Seattle Bowl was held for two years, in 2001 and 2002, before disbanding for financial reasons.

One complication will be getting approval from the NCAA as there will be 34 bowl games this season, and with 119 teams, simply finding enough eligible teams to play may quickly become an issue.
