bgp prepend

I have 2 3750 switches in stacking configuration. I want to do bgp peering with 2 isp's. The set as-path prepend command is not available on the 3750's. How can I configure the stack so that all traffic comes from the favored isp unless the link fails?

Is the stack a good way of achieving a failover configuration to 2 different isp's?

You would be better "prepending" a true router between switches and ISPs.

Reason being, you will have access to the full IOS set of wan/internet feature, and avoiding additional load to the switches CPU that is a quite slow one.
