I don't know what's happening this year, but I spoke with a Big 12 Referee (worked the national championship game a few years ago) who, after the '04 season, was offered the Motor City Bowl. He declined for a couple of different reasons, but depending on how many crews they need (and maybe based on how many conference's teams make the bowls), they will pluck them from various conferences.

I don't know if the NCAA seriously considers which conferences call what bowl games. I guess to some extent they do, since we don't see MAC or WAC officials working the BCS title games. But those leagues are seen by officials and supervisors as feeder leagues for officials to the Big 10, Big 12, PAC-10, etc.
