It was announced on ESPN.com that the Big East will indeed have a seat at the new "BCS 2.0" table, even if it looks a bit different.
According to the ESPN article, the top team from the "Group of Five," which includes the Big East, Mountain West, C-USA, MAC and Sun Belt, will get an automatic bid into one of those games.
With the teams that will be in the "Group of Five," the spot in that bowl will nearly be a lock every season for the Big East.
According to the Scott Slant on KTIK.com, in eight of the last 10 seasons the teams that will make up the new Big East in 2013 would have had the automatic bid locked up if the new bowl system were in place.
Not only that, but the Big East has some very good second-tier bowl game partnerships that could make bowl season interesting for the Broncos.
Those bowls include the Russell Athletic Bowl against an ACC team in Orlando, Florida. Which, let's face it, is not a bad place to vacation in December.
Other games are the Belk Bowl in Charlotte against another ACC team and the New Era Pinstripe Bowl in Yankee Stadium against a Big 12 opponent. New York around Christmas is an amazing place to be.
Add to those games the Beef O' Brady's Bowl in St. Petersburg, Florida, the Autozone Liberty Bowl in Memphis and the BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, Alabama against an SEC foe.
You also have to believe the Big East will eventually land a bowl out west, but for now these are intriguing and exciting bowl games for the team and the fans.
