Hawaii Bowl drops Pac-10

HONOLULU — Conference USA has signed an agreement to send one of its teams to this year’s Hawaii Bowl.

The runner-up in the C-USA championship game or another selection will be invited to take on a Western Athletic Conference team in the Dec. 24 game. Hawaii automatically secures a berth if it is bowl eligible.

The seventh bowl-eligible school from the Pac-10 was to participate this year, but because the conference only had five bowl-eligible teams last year all parties agreed to void the Pac-10 selection for 2009.

Hawaii athletic director Jim Donovan says the possibility of not having an eligible Pac-10 team was very real and that in the long run it would be better for the Warriors to be matched up against a high-placed C-USA team than an at-large team.

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
