As the month of November winds to a close, we take a look at where each Pac-12 team might be headed for bowl season.
- Armed Forces (Fort Worth)
- Heart of Dallas (Dallas)
- Independence (Shreveport)
- Poinsettia (San Diego)
- Cure (Orlando)
- New Mexico (Albuquerque)
- Hawaii (Honolulu)
- Arizona (Tucson)
Those first six games will almost certainly need teams to fill another conference's open spot. The Hawaii will have an opening if Tulsa loses at Tulane on Friday, and the same goes for the Arizona if Old Dominion falls against Florida Atlantic on Saturday.
Any of these are possible for Arizona State, California, Arizona, and Washington. The Independence had an official on site for the Territorial Cup, and since the Wildcats played there two years ago, I think it is safe to say they would be more interested in the Sun Devils this time around.
We could have another Cactus Bowl-like situation with Arizona and the Nova Home Loans Arizona Bowl. Would they want the Wildcats? Would the Wildcats want them?
The Golden Bears seem like an attractive option for the Poinsettia, while the Huskies could be sent anywhere. These spots are the toughest to predict since there are no guidelines for order of selection, but one thing is for sure: With 41 postseason games, there will be a home for everyone.
