One of these contests is going to be a major college football bowl game.The Las Vegas Bowl, which has typically pitted a Mountain West team against a Pac-12 squad, is set to get some bigger teams involved.College football insider Brett McMurphy reports that the bowl game is going to end its 19-year relationship with the Mountain West Conference. Replacing the MWC team will be an SEC squad.“Las Vegas Bowl will pit Pac-12 vs. another Power 5 league (SEC most intriguing possibility) in 2020 in Vegas’ new NFL stadium. This will end the bowl’s 19-year relationship w/Mountain West. In 2020, MWC could send its champ to Arizona Bowl,” McMurphy tweeted.Sources: Las Vegas Bowl will pit Pac-12 vs. another Power 5 league (SEC most intriguing possibility) in 2020 in Vegas’ new NFL stadium.
