So According to Big East Blogger Andrea Adelson, PITT is heading to the BBVA Compass Bowl and the league only has 5 bowl eligible teams. Adelson predicts that none of the BE teams would go to the Beef o'Bradys Bowl and instead thinks that
BCS: West Virginia
Belk Bowl, Dec. 27: Louisville
AutoZone Liberty Bowl, Dec. 31: Cincinnati
New Era Pinstripe Bowl, Dec. 30: Rutgers
Champs Sports Bowl: Notre Dame
BBVA Compass Bowl, Jan. 7: Pitt
so sadly no quest fulfilled either way but there's always next year....
