Attention Gopher fans: new Big Ten bowls

The Big Ten has announced a new bowl lineup starting next season, with most of the shake-up coming at the bottom. The first new bowl is the Texas Bowl in Houston, with a Big 12 opponent. I wonder what airline tickets from Minneapolis to Houston go for?

Or Minneapolis to Dallas, for something called the Dallas Football Classic versus a Conference USA team. Ugh.

The best new bowl game is the Gator Bowl, which is one of my favorites. There's a lot of history in that Jacksonville bowl, and we'll get an SEC team. We also still have the Insight Bowl, Outback, Capital One, and Rose Bowls.

Say goodbye to the Champs Sports Bowl, which was forgettable, and the Alamo Bowl, which I liked.
