All but official: USF to Birmingham



USF won't announce anything official until 6:30 p.m., but the rest of the Big East's major bowls are accounted for, with Louisville in the BCS, West Virginia in the Gator, Rutgers in the Texas Bowl and Cincinnati in the International Bowl. Pittsburgh's on the outside looking in, leaving USF to Birmingham. I'll post something tonight when I get home from the official announcement.

Bowl officials from Birmingham said this week they expect both teams to bring 10,000 fans to the Dec. 23 game, so the pressure will be on USF to improve on the 5,200 fans it brought to Charlotte for last year's Meineke Car Care Bowl. Again, more to come later ...
