The Alamo Bowl will get the first pick from the Big 12 under a new six-year deal with the Pac-12 announced Friday.
Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said Friday that the league’s 10 schools will share a record $198 million for the 2012-13 school year, an amount expected to increase significantly going forward.
Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds believes the new College Football Playoff could use one more round.
The Alamo Bowl is close to getting the first choice of Big 12 teams outside the championship picture.

The new four-team playoff starting after the 2014 regular season will be called the College Football Playoff, and the conference commissioners will make it official with an announcement later Tuesday.
