It looks like the Big ten is looking to diversify their bowl tie ins. Too Florida heavy and not enough variety in locals and conferences they play. The new tie ins would go into effect the year we move in.
Rose: Pasadena- Pac 12
Capital One: Orlando- SEC
Outback: Tampa- SEC
Gator: Jacksonville- SEC
BWW: Tempe- Big 12
Car Care Bowl of Texas: Houston-Big 12
Heart of Texas: Dallas-Big 12
Little Ceasars: Detroit- MAC
Dont think any of the Florida games are going anywhere, maybe the Gator. One of the TX games I think is gone, the article mentions Pinstripe/Holiday/Kraft as options
Think Big Ten def takes the Pinstripe to get that bowl game in NYC and it would be awesome to get the Holiday and Ill throw the Las Vegas bowl as a way to get another game with the Pac 12
The Big Ten plays unquestionably the nation's toughest bowl lineup. The league also plays quite possibly the nation's least diverse bowl lineup. One
Rose- Pac 12
Capital One- SEC
Holiday- Pac 12
BWW- Big 12
Car Care- Big 12
Las Vegas- Pac 12/MWC
Wouldn't be shocked if the B1G didn't try and get into either the Music City, Belk or Chick-Fil-A.
I couldn't see any reason to get into belk. Why would that be any draw?
They want to move into the mid-atlantic. I'm talking like last or second to last bowl eligible team going there.
Whatever happens lets hope they drop the Little Ceasar's Bowl. No one wants to go to Detroit in December.
I'd think pinstripe or even military would make a lot more sense then going into Charlotte.
Music City would be so money. But honestly - below the Gator those bowls all suck, too. And even the Gator isn't that sweet. Tempe is fine, I guess. Houston is near the Gulf so I'd probably rather go there. Dump Dallas for the Pinstripe, add the Holiday Bowl against a Pac 12 team. NYC and San Diego FTW
I think Pinstripe and a Cal bowl is a lock. Question is will it be Holiday or Kraft Fight hunger. No reason to have 2 Texas bowls, think they keep the Houston one played in Reliant and dump heart of texas
My guess: they dump the Gator Bowl and the Heart of Dallas Bowl, and add the Pinstripe (I think that's a lock) and the game in San Francisco.
They may also try to add one more tie-in.

Big Ten has a long history with the Holiday bowl, so that would be my guess.
You'd love the drunk bus to and from the game from the bars though, if you are into that sort of thing
Detroit Hustles Harder
The Vegas one would be awesome, I wish that would somehow become a bigger bowl
Should give up both TX bowls and go back to Alamo Bowl.
San Antonio >>>>>>> Hou or Dal

For those who didn't click the link, B10 will also have at least 3 appearances in the Orange Bowl over the next 10/12 years.
In the Big 12's efforts to get a Florida bowl, the Russell Athletic Bowl (Orlando) and the Gator Bowl (Jacksonville) are in play. The conference's bowl agreements are up after next season, and the major conferences are re-evaluating the bowl structure in light of dropping attendance and repetitive matchups.
Texas and Texas A The Longhorns are booked until 2018.
B1G may try for the Chick-Fil-A bowl but I'd be absolutely shocked if they moved away from the ACC and SEC tie-ins any time soon.
as long as they get rid of Little Caesars. That should absolutely be a non-BCS/non-BCS bowl
the NYC bowl is a joke. Nobody here even knows the game is playing, it's usually a tad chilly during that time of year and good luck tailgating in a parking garage in the Bronx.
Outside the Rose Bowl and Pasedena and the smaller city bowls like El Paso, is any bowl a big deal where the locals care about it? It seems to me interest in any of the bowls is basically restricted to the people from the schools coming in formthe game.
Most bowls at this point are just a stadium date filler.
His prior quote of a few weeks ago and this one in the article say otherwise:
"We're going to try and be national and try to have relationships on both coasts and maybe in areas we haven't been before," Delany said. "There will be more diversity in teams that get to go, so no one goes to Florida five times in six years or even three years in a row. I hope we would put together a slate of games where our alums live, where we recruit and against opponents that will test us every year. Those are the elements.
The Big Ten and ACC are in discussions with the Pinstripe Bowl on a commitment after the 2013 season, according to a league source that expects a deal to happen eventually.
The ACC and Big 12 are working toward a deal with the Pinstripe Bowl -- pitting two power conferences in Yankee Stadium
Bump for jsh and the comments from Delaney:
The Big Ten's future bowl lineup is starting to come into focus. There will be changes beginning in the 2014 season. How many? It could be a lot,
Ideally the Gator is the Florida bowl they get rid of.
Go away, KA!
Brett McMurphy speculated that they would drop the Gator. I would imagine all three bowls would love to maintain their B10/SEC partnership.
