BOISE, Idaho (AP) -The Mountain West Conference will send a team to the Humanitarian Bowl in 2009 after the conference and bowl reached an agreement Thursday.
The Mountain West will send its fifth-place team to play a school from the Western Athletic Conference in 2009. One of the few bowl games in a cold climate, the Humanitarian Bowl had an agreement with the Atlantic Coast Conference that ends after this year's game.
``The MWC has averaged five bowl-eligible teams over the past several seasons. We are pleased to secure a fifth guaranteed slot for our member institutions in this established and respected game,'' MWC commissioner Craig Thompson said in a statement.
Conference arrangements for all bowl games will be reset in time for the 2010 bowl season. Thompson said the MWC would like to continue a relationship with the game in 2010 and beyond.
``Our goal is to retain and grow this caliber of competition by increasing payouts to bowl teams,'' Humanitarian Bowl executive director Kevin McDonald said.
