The 2009-10 bowl lineup has been announced and outside of a few date and sponsorship changes, it's nearly identical to last season's postseason lineup.
Thirty-four bowls have been licensed by the NCAA Football Issues Committee. That means 68 of the 120 Division I-A teams (56.6%) will be bowling. A 6-6 record makes a team eligible.
The postseason begins Dec. 19 with two games — the New Mexico and St. Petersburg bowls. On Jan. 7 — 20 days later — the postseason ends with the Bowl Championship Series title game at the Rose Bowl (pictured above).
There are 20 games in December and 14 in January. The busiest days on the calendar are Jan. 1 and 2. Five games will be played each of those days.
Pasadena will play host to two games, the Rose Bowl and BCS title game. Orlando (Champ Sports, Capital One), New Orleans (New Orleans, Sugar) and San Diego (Poinsettia, Holiday, pictured below) also have two games. Two games will also be played in the Phoenix area (Insight in Tempe and Fiesta in Glendale).
