I have a story in today's Trib about New Mexico potentially launching a new bowl game.
ESPN is providing the New Mexico Sports Authority with a $2 million line of credit. ESPN will broadcast the game on one of its networks. It will pair teams from the Mountain West and Western Athletic conferences. The game will be played sometime before Christmas this year.
All that's missing is approval from the NCAA bowl licensing committee. The group will meet April 27-28 in Orlando to decide the bowl's fate.
UNM Athletics Director Rudy Davalos and WAC Commissioner Karl Benson expect the plan to be approved.
So now comes the fun part.
What would you name the new bowl game?
The Chile Bowl?
The Balloon Bowl?
The Land of Enchantment Bowl?
