Pointsettia Bowl, WAC announce agreement

The WAC and the Pointsettia Bowl announce an agree to face a MWC representative in 2011 and 2012. This fills in the blanks where the WAC will fill the Emerald Bowl slot in 2010 and 2013 as Army and Navy will be there the other two years.

Matt, any insight as to the selection order from the WAC for the Poinsettia Bowl? Also, not sure if these arrangements have been finalized but does this give the MWC vs. WAC in three bowl matchups:

Poinsettia
New Mexico
Humanitarian

Greg, what the WAC typically does is place teams based on geography with respect to bowls and they don't do a selection order.

The top two teams in the WAC standing are assured of a bowl selection. Hawai'i also has the exception of going to the Hawai'i Bowl as long as it is bowl eligible.
