- The Emerald Bowl has signed up its matchups for the 2010-2013 seasons. The PAC-10 will always be tied to the bowl with its 6th representative. The opponent will vary, with the WAC the representative in 2010 and 2013, with Army the primary in 2011 and Navy in 2012.
This means that the ACC will move east. Over the past two seasons the ACC has declined to return to its two western bowls (Humanitarian and Emerald).
- DirecTV and Versus are still at their stalemate and there have been no hints of compromise on either side. Texas is making fans aware of the situation, point them to a place where they can find a channel provider with Versus.
Based on this information, I wouldn't expect any legal webstreaming options for this game. And Texas has appeared as part of the Big 12 set of games on Versus, back in 2007 vs. Baylor.
