Boston College Football Bowl: Heart Of Dallas Out, UNLV vs. North Texas

New, 25 comments

UNLV will take on North Texas on New Year's Day.

While Boston College AD Brad Bates made it no secret that Boston College hearts the Heart of Dallas Bowl, the HoD Bowl isn't waiting around for a replacement team from the ACC. The UNLV Rebels will play North Texas in the Heart of Dallas Bowl on January 1, sources told the Las Vegas Sun.

A few more replacement bowl slots have been filled this afternoon:

-- Ohio has accepted a bid to play in the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl vs. East Carolina.
-- Northern Illinois will face Utah State in the Poinsettia Bowl.
-- Middle Tennessee State will play Navy in the Armed Forces Bowl.
-- Sources told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that Boise State will face Oregon State in the Hawaii Bowl.
-- Previously announced, Notre Dame and Rutgers will square off in the Pinstripe Bowl at Yankee Stadium.

That leaves open slots in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl (Detroit) and Independence Bowl (Shreveport) for two more at-large teams. A third bowl, the Texas Bowl in Houston, will open up if a second Big 12 team is selected for the BCS.

Middle Tennessee taking a Mountain West bowl slot kinda throws some things off, but it's still looking like Boston College will land in the I-Bowl. Current SB Nation projections are here. Stay tuned.
