The Foster Farms Bowl (formerly Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl) moves from sixth to fourth in the Pac-12 pecking order for a six-season cycle starting in 2014, when the game moves from the San Francisco Giantsí AT&T Park to the San Francisco 49ersí new home, Leviís Stadium, in Santa Clara.

San Diegoís Holiday Bowl, usually a popular destination for Pac-12 schools, remains third in the conference order, although the bowl is dropping its affiliation with the Big 12 to also add a Big Ten school.

The Big Ten, which will be expanding to 14 teams with the addition of Maryland and Rutgers in 2014, wonít have a strict postseason pecking order based on standings but will work to find the best possible matchups. The Big Ten, for example, will send at least five different teams to each of its two new bowls ó the Holiday and Foster Farms ó during this six-year agreement
