Pregame bowl chatter from Rentschler

Got the chance to chat with Sun Bowl selection chair John Folmer in the press box this morning. He said he thinks it will be Pittsburgh or West Virginia going to El Paso. UConn will still be part of the discussion should it win today, but Folmer said its likely a two-team race at this point. Even Rutgers, despite its strong finish and the fact that it is clearly the second-best team in the Big East, will be behind West Virginia even if the Mountaineers lose and both teams have 7-5 records.

Pitt will get the Sun Bowl invite in he locker room with a victory.

Still waiting for Ken Hoffman, the executive director of the International Bowl and Motor City Bowls, to arrive to speak with him. But with Buffalo being invited to the International Bowl, it seems almost certain UConn will be heading there in what might be a pretty interesting game.
