SILICON VALLEY BOWL MAY ADD MAC TEAM

The Silicon Valley Bowl is close to finalizing a deal to bring a football team from the Mid-American Conference to the game in place of a Pac-10 team.

With the Pac-10 unable to fulfill all seven of its bowl bids, the conference gave the Silicon Valley Bowl permission to begin negotiating with other conferences to fill its slot for a team to face an opponent from the Western Athletic Conference this year.

The MAC has five teams eligible for a bowl and contracts for only two, the Motor City Bowl and the GMAC Bowl.
