The Sun Bowl is nationally televised. So USF is going to get more national exposure. Good for the team and good for the school.

Yeah, but the time of the game is awful. Its like a noon start or something. Most people dont get the afternoon off. I looked into airfare, thought Id maybe go if Oregon went. Decided no way.

How does Oregon end up playing USF in the Sun Bowl? I thought it was the Pac 10 #3.

Because they can choose. Because Oregon fans are some of the best traveling fans in the country, and Oregon draws more attention to the game then OSU etc would

Oregons only shot is Jonathan Stewart 150+ yards, and no turnovers by Roper

The reason they could bypass Oregon State is because Oregon State played in the bowl last year and thus the Sun Bowl had the right to choose someone else (I'm not sure if it had to be the #4 team or what).  Otherwise they would have had to take Oregon State.

I just hope its a good game but I doubt it. I dont see Roper playing well enough but I dont care either way. Bowls like this are just another regular seaosn game
