As the 2010 season winds down, bowl game officials are looking at teams that might be traveling to their cities come late December and early January. In fact, officials from the Fiesta Bowl, Orange Bowl, Rose Bowl will all be at at Beaver Stadium on Saturday for Penn State's game with Michigan State, presumably to scout out the Spartans for a possible appearance in one of those BCS bowls.
The Outback Bowl will also be sending officials, too, however, presumably to take a look at Penn State. If the Nittany Lions win on Saturday, they could be headed to Tampa as they did when they finished 8-4 in 2006. Gator Bowl president Rick Catlett hopes that doesn't happen, though.
