Brian Bennett, ESPN.com's Big East blogger (quoting a writer for the Birmingham News), reports that the Liberty Bowl could be back in the mix for the Big East.
I actually wouldn't mind seeing this and it could conceivably mean that the Big East could have seven of its eight members in bowl games. A little ridiculous? Sure, considering the Big East probably ranks no better than fourth out of the six BCS conferences. But it would still be a good thing for conference members.
Most Pitt fans probably remember the beating they took in the game 13 years ago. I also noticed that no other Liberty Bowl game had been less attended since. It was a bad game for Pitt, but still it was nice for the team that made a bowl after several horrible seasons.
