Looks like BYU in 2018, the MAC in other years.

Can BYU get a primary agreement for next year? Are there any slots not already contracted out?

BYU doesn't have an agreement for 2017 either. That's likely to be sort of par for the course as an independent, although 2019 is the Aloha Bowl.

I thought BYU had an agreement with the AAC and the Miami Bowl for 2015 and 2017...

RE: Poinsettia Bowl goes bust
I've been vocal about cutting a bowl from the lineup, but was assuming it would be the Tucson bowl. The Poinsettia Bowl retiring is devastating and bothersome. Poinsettia was easily one of the very best new school bowls that built up credible tradition from the historic top 10 Boise/TCU matchup one year and intriguing matchups in other years. Every year I made sure not to miss the Poinsettia Bowl. Good name (Poinsettia). Great location too. Also aesthetically pleasing with natural grass.

This sucks.

Nope. BYU scheduled Bowls:
2017: No Bowl scheduled
2018: was Poinsetta Bowl
2019: Hawaii Bowl
Cheers!

BYU had an agreement with the Miami Beach bowl to play an AAC team in 2014 and played Memphis. BYU also has an agreement to play an AAC team in the Hawaii bowl in 2019. Does make sense for AAC to bring in BYU in Miami Beach bowl again in 17 or 18.

Sure, but what about the MAC and AAC teams supposed to play there those years?

When the AAC brought in BYU in 2014, they gave away one of their bowls to the conference that was displaced. Believe they gave Bahamas to CUSA in order to sign BYU, but could be wrong. Going off memory. The AAC has 8 tie ins every year for 12 teams and won't fill a lot of years, so can afford to let one go, especially if filling an access bowl. Of course I say that now, and then AAC won't have enough bowl tie ins.

RE: Poinsettia Bowl goes bust
On Monday, a group of investors proposed replacing Qualcomm Stadium with a 20,000-30,000-seat soccer venue that could also be home to SDSU's football team. The proposed capacity would be too small for the Holiday Bowl

RE: Poinsettia Bowl goes bust
Could the MWC buy the rights to stage this bowl from its current owner? The AAC owns a couple of bowls used as a vehicle for its own teams. Couldn't the MWC do the same? The payout for this bowl is pretty low (around $600K) so it might be economically feasible.

But at the end of the day, this - and the Independence Bowl's loss of a sponsor - are just evidence of the marketplace at work. If 40 bowls is too many, as so many of us have said, this is how the market corrects itself.

Funny, when a bowl finally gets cut, people say its the wrong one. Good news for the AAC. The now have an opening to get out of that terrible Monday before Christmas slot.

Hate to see Poinsettia go but I think 3-4 more should be cut. My top three

Boca Bowl (Then Move Miami Bowl to Boca)
AZ Bowl
Potato Bowl
