The Big 12 will continue its relationship with most of the bowl games in the current lineup. But not all of them, and not in the same selecting order.
The Gator, Sun and Independence bowls are out. The game at Yankee Stadium is in. As for the order, the Alamo Bowl jumps to the third choice behind the BCS games and Cotton Bowl. After that, the Insight, Holiday, Texas and game in New York that hasn't been named will select.
The lineup, determined by bowl payout, is a four-year agreement that begins in 2010. The Big 12 loses a slot in the new arrangement because the Gator and Sun bowls shared a position, dropping the number of assured postseason games to seven.
Will a bowl game be available for every team that qualifies?
"We're still looking at options," Big 12 spokesman Bob Burda said. "The membership's goal is to have eight available."
But the conference hasn't often had a team qualify and stay home for the holidays. The last time it happened was 2006, when 6-6 Kansas didn't go bowling.
The Big Ten also announced future bowl agreements on Tuesday. The league will move into the Gator Bowl and provide a team for a new game, the Dallas Football Classic, to be played in the old Cotton Bowl.
The Big 12 and Big Ten will continue their meeting in the Insight Bowl and the Texas Bowl will now include a Big Ten opponent. A Pac-10 team will replace the Big Ten in the Alamo Bowl.
