    See the earlier discussion about Boise State and Kent State... two in the BCS for the Big 12 is far from certain, although the Clemson loss certainly helps

    I guess I was looking at the wrong info...I think you're right. It will be MAC vs. Conf USA

    If the Big 12 only gets 1 team in the BCS, we should be able to decline the bid as Baylor could take it. If we have two and are the last team available, I doubt we can.

    And good point about Boise and Kent, but I'd be surprised if that happened though.

    All teams from #15 to #25 lost this week, except #22 Boise and #23 Kent St, plus the teams with the best chance to still stay ahead of them have likely losses again next week.

    I highly doubt that Boise and Kent St. make a BCS game. The bowls want schools who will bring fans!!!

    Yes. It might end up taking a conscious effort by the voters to not move them up despite all 7 teams in front and both teams behind them losing.

    Read the rest of the thread. They are within range of getting an auto-bid. No choice for bowls.

    They might not have a choice.

    I believe that Big 12 teams cannot decline bowl bids. I think I've heard this somewhere, and just looked for it but couldn't find any information.

    It's not a matter of if they want to but a matter of if they have to. There's a real chance that one of those two could make it in and steal that final slot away from Oklahoma.

    Exactly. The school's in front of them may have lost, but the voters will still not move them up much. Plus no one wants to see Kent State get slaughtered in a BCS game. Kent lost to 2-10 Kentucky for ****** sake.

    Then why are they voting for them in the first place? They've been moving them up every week already.

    I'll bet this will be closer than a lot of people here apparently think.

    But the computers in the end will hopefully hold them out.

    This is what I'm starting to think. This week I could see the minors jump to 17/18. But, it is going to be interesting
