Motor City Bowl LogoCould the UConn Huskies end up in Detroit at the Motor City Bowl against a MAC opponent most likely to be the Ball State Cardinals?

Ken Hoffman who is executive director of the Motor City Bowl and International Bowl spoke at halftime and here’s what he had to say courtesy of Chip Malafronte of the New Haven Register.

After speaking with Ken Hoffman, the director of the International Bowl and the Motor City Bowl, it now seems there’s a good chance the Huskies could wind up in Detroit playing Ball State. Hoffman said certain things need to happen in the next 24 hours, mainly with the BCS selections, before he can make any decisions.

It’s quite confusing, but in a nutshell, the BCS still has a hold on Ball State despite the fact that it’s unlikely (read: impossible) for BSU to go to a BCS bowl. When the BCS makes its choices, Hoffman’s two bowls will select based on “the best matchups.” Buffalo is already slotted for Toronto. It seems Ball State is the choice for Detroit. Since Buffalo is expected to bring many fans to Canada, logic dictates a Big East opponent for Ball State in Detroit. Rutgers could still be the team the Motor City is targeting.

The way this is shaping up right now we probably won’t know where UConn is going to end up until tomorrow night.
