    No 17 Kent State 1 Spot away from Auto-bid

    Kent St needs one more spot to get the Auto and lock the Big XII into just one BCS bid

    As long as they win their conf. Champ game they should be up to #16. Someone's bound to lose.

    I hope they get that automatic spot. I want the Music City Bowl.

    I'm all for the auto bid for the highest non-AQ champ within a certain ranking, but BCS bowls shouldn't be allowed to skip at large teams for lower ranked at large teams the way KSU got skipped for a typical crap Big Ten team last year.

    UCLA is #16 and will be an underdog to Stanford.

    Kent State win + UCLA loss = 1 Big XII bid.

    Though Northern Illinois will be no slouch for KSU.

    NIU is undefeated against teams not named Iowa this year.

    NIU will beat KSU. Not concerned.

    Re: No 17 Kent State 1 Spot away from Auto-bid

    Why can't we just strip the Big East of their auto qualifier this year? They don't have a single team in the BCS Top 25.

    The money is big, but I'd rather play an SEC team in the Music City Bowl than play in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. Both are good though.

    If Texas were to beat Kansas State, they could very possibly jump back ahead of Kent St, and make UCLA result irrelevant.

    No matter what bowl you want, I think we can agree Kent State getting a BCS bowl is rediculous

    I think it's less ridiculous than any Big Least team getting an invite this year.

    Correct. That would be the next hurdle.
