Rose Bowl Appearance Opportunity

The BCS has changed some of the rules in order to give conferences outside of the automatic qualifying leagues to have a chance to play in the Rose Bowl.

It will give a non-BCS conference team the opportunity to play their way into the Rose Bowl. Beginning in the 2010 season, if either the Big Ten or Pac-10 conference champion qualifies for the national championship game, and a team outside of the BCS conferences earns a BCS bid, the Rose Bowl must take that team.

This is a step in the right direction that will help out mid-major teams such as Boise State, and Utah in hopes of getting into a major BCS Bowl and showcasing their talents and skills on the big stage.
