The Mountain West Conference announced three bowl deals today with one of those deals with a bowl they were not previously affiliated with. For the 2010-13 bowl cycle, the Independence Bowl will match MWC #3 vs. ACC #7. The New Mexico and Armed Forces bowl games were also renewed. These two bowl games will make a mutual decision to invite the most appropriate team based on the markets where those bowl games reside.
For 2009, the MWC has an agreement with the Humanitarian Bowl in Boise, ID. There has been no announcement whether the MWC was interested in extending that agreement now that they are involved with the I-Bowl.
#1 Las Vegas
