Bowl Game


Recommended Posts

So USF is encouraging folks to buy to put in their claim to bowl tickets which I'm fine with but why only the 6 bowls? What if Navy wins the conference won't that open up the Armed Forces Bowl? Small shot but I'd think a better shot than Hawai'i. And what happens if 9 teams in the AAC are bowl eligible? Could happen, UConn needs to beat either Houston or Temple, Tulsa needs to beat either Navy or Tulane and ECU needs to beat both UCF and Cincy. I realize its a long shot but none of those team play each other so mathematically its possible. What if we have 9 bowl eligible teams and only 7 slots? I know that means none of the 6-7 teams can go but could that preclude USF from going to a bowl? Just wonderin'

Currently there are 71 teams eligible
18 teams not yet eligible but could become eligible - wins(games remaining)
Buffalo - 5(1),  East Carolina - 5(1), Georgia State - 4(2), Illinois - 5(1), Indiana - 5(1), Kansas State - 4(2), Kentucky - 5(1), Louisiana-Lafayette - 4(2), Minnesota - 5(1), Missouri - 5(1), Nebraska - 5(1), Old Dominion - 5(1), San Jose State - 5(1), South Alabama - 5(2), Texas - 4(2), Tulsa - 5(1), Virginia Tech - 5(1), Washington - 5(1)

There are now 7 bowl eligible teams in the AAC with 2 others (ECU, Tulsa) potentially to become bowl eligible. ECU plays Cincy and Tulsa plays Tulane so the possibility exists that there may be more eligible teams than slots. I did read somewhere that only three of the bowls (Hawaii, St Pete and Birmingham) have to pick from the top 6 AAC bowl eligible. So I'm thinking there is a chance that some team (not us) could be selected for a bowl outside of the bowls the AAC is affiliated with.

One possibility:
Peach/Fiesta  - Navy  (could be someone else but for AAC sake lets hope its Navy)
Birmingham - Houston ( Although they could finish tied for 6th with Cincy they have the tiebreaker in the standings as they beat Cincy)
St Pete - USF (St Pete has the second selection and they had a co-champ last year with UCF, no reason why they would choose anyone else)
Miami - Cincy
Military - UConn
Hawaii - Temple
Boca Raton - East Carolina
Cure - Tulsa

Music City - Memphis
