Question: Do teams who go to the SEC and Big 12 Championship games but lose get the #2 spot automatically?

I think that sounds about right.

Also, California's on probation, so they're not bowl-eligible anyway.

The Bowl selection and watching Nebraska lose are my favorite things about the college football season.

and where you finish in the conference doesn't neccesarily determine where you play - it just means that the Bowl gets that # choice. A bowl could pick a team that finished lower in the conference but is a better fit geographically. It's all about the $$$'s

If you actually go by conference standings at this point, Pitt would be Big East #1, with a better overall conference record. 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.

I said it awhile ago, and I know I sound like a broken record, but Pitt will beat Miami. Final score:

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.
