The ACC will have a new bowl partner in 2010, according to the Tampa Tribune. The Sun Bowl has dumped the Big East for the ACC.

The Sun Bowl, which is played in El Paso, Texas, will get the fifth choice in the ACC order, jumping the Charlotte-Nashville-San Francisco cartel.

The bowl lineups have been quietly been shuffling this month, and for the worse for the Big East. It lost its tie-in with the Gator, replaced by the Big Ten, and the Sun Bowl. The Big East did jump in the Big Ten's slot in the Champs Sports.

The Big Ten was dumped by the Alamo Bowl, hence the Gator deal, in favor of the Pac-10, which downgraded its affiliation with the Holiday Bowl. The second Pac-10 choice will now play in San Antonio, instead of San Diego.

Got that? Test on Monday.

The ACC's bowl lineup for 2009 is:
Dec. 26 Emerald San Francisco
Dec. 26 Meineke Charlotte
Dec. 27 Music City Nashville
Dec. 29 EagleBank Washington
Dec. 29 Champs Orlando
Dec. 31 Chick-fil-A Atlanta
Jan. 1 Gator Jacksonville, Fla.
Jan. 5 Orange Miami
Jan. 6 GMAC Mobile
