    New Mexico Bowl

    I dont have a great understanding of the bowl slots and how the picking can go of teams with similar records, but is there any way UofA does not end up in the NM Bowl?

    Assuming we will be going to ABQ...

    Just checked Expedia, and flights out of Phoenix are starting at $192 (round trip), Premium tickets to the game are only $40, and several hotels in the area are priced at under $100 per night.

    Anyone making the trip out there?

    That's the day we play Florida in basketball. That's going to be a tough decision for a lot of Wildcat fans.

    Probably right. Typical UofA fan forgets/ignores the football program as soon as the Red/Blue Game tips off. Wont be a tough decision for me though.

    Football > Basketball

    OK, Let's go to the Kraft Hunger bowl.We could beat Navy and it is in SF on the 29th. It would give us more practice time. I think ASSSSU wil go to vegas and maybe UDUB to ABQ. If they pick by region we would end up in ABQ.

    I would prefer your scenario over the NM Bowl vs Nevada for sure. Knowing UofA plays Nevada twice over the next few years doesn't get me very excited to face the Wolfpack this season. And besides, SF > ABQ... by a very wide margin.

    If its the New Mexico Bowl I will be attending my first game in the RichRod era. Would be cool but I want Zona to go to the best bowl game possible.

    I'm sure that Byrne would push the bowl committee in SanFran to take Arizona. He wouldn't want a major conflict to come up & our offense would likely roll over Navy

    Would definitely prefer San Fran over ABQ as well. Better bowl and better exposure

    I bet Byrne gets us another bowl besides NM. Pretty much our biggest basketball game of the year is the same day. I will be surprised if we go to nm

    Las Vegas Bowl is possible as well, altough Washington thinks they'll be going there.

    I'm rooting for anything other than New Mexico so we can get more practices in and not conflict with my graduation and the basketball game.

    I like the direction of that article! We have to hope that Boise beats out UNR...I'm sure Peterson is still having nightmares about Kaepernick from 2010
