Y!: # 3 Posted on 17.11.02 2308.13 Reposted on: 17.11.09 2317.03 I think that sounds about right. Also, California's on probation, so they're not bowl-eligible anyway.

A bowl could pick a team that finished lower in the conference but is a better fit geographically. It's all about the $$$'s

All I'm asking for this weekend is 3 of the 4 from Washington, Pitt, Texas Tech, and Michigan to pull upsets. The 1977 back from the dead theory might actually work.

Final score: Pitt 27 Miami 24

AIM: # 8 Posted on 22.11.02 2028.02 Reposted on: 22.11.09 2029.01 In the case of teams having higher conference rankings (just based on playing more games,) I put the higher-ranked team there. Example is Ohio State - they're still a half-game back of Iowa but ranked #2 in the nation and BCS. Same with Miami before yesterday. Next week should clear it a lot more.
