    Utah vs. Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl??

    BOWL MAY BE 'NON' FACTOR - New York Post

    I think BSU deserves a shot if they finish undefeated. 7-7 1st qtr against Fresno State - on ESPN2

    Neither of these teams deserves a shot just because they go undefeated. Let 'em try to go through the Big XII (or SEC) that way. I'm pretty sure OU wouldn't take 'em casually again.

    I would rather see them both make it and play BCS schools to see if they stack up (and I think they would with many). It would be interesting.

    Of course they could "stack up" when they just have to get up for one game. I'd much rather have three deserving Big XII teams in the BCS.

    Re: Utah vs. Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl??

    I agree - I'd rather see them play a team from a BCS conference as well - but I disagree AClone - I think they both deserve a shot - the ACC And Big East champs are probably weaker than either of them.....

    Yeah, i would too, but that won't happen. So I'd rather see Boise State than Alabama (after they lose) or Ohio State or USC...Did I just type that?

    No one wants to see that matchup.

    Re: Utah vs. Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl??

    I just don't see any scenario where we get 3 Big 12 teams in. I am all for bucking the system. Boise State could compete fine in the Big East, and they get an automatic bid.

    I agree with everyone else. If they are going to go to the BCS, let them play BCS conference schools. If you're going to let them in, they need to prove that they belong.

    well, considering that they only allow two teams from one conference in the BCS, I dont really see that scenario either.

    I believe there's a rule that says only two teams from each conference may play in a BCS game, unless they changed it this year.

    Utah
    ESPN - Utah Utes vs. Michigan Wolverines Box Score, August 30 2008 - NCAA College Football
    ESPN - Oregon State Beavers vs. Utah Utes Box Score, October 2 2008 - NCAA College Football
    ESPN - Brigham Young Cougars vs. Utah Utes Box Score, November 22 2008 - NCAA College Football

    Boise St
    ESPN - Boise State Broncos vs. Oregon Ducks Box Score, September 20 2008 - NCAA College Football

    Seems to me, especially Utah, took care of business when they went up against BCS schools (or in Utah's case, BYU, who also really took care of business against their share of BCS schools).

    One other thing - if OSU beats Oregon tomorrow, are you really going to use the argument that OSU deserves a Rose Bowl birth but Utah doesn't, even though Utah beat them straight up AND went undefeated in a conference that's arguably more difficult than the Big East, ACC, and maybe even the Pac 10? That's silly...

    There apparently is one longshot scenario where a BCS conference can get three teams into the BCS. Say Oklahoma wins on Saturday and goes on to represent the South in the Big XII title game, and then goes to lose to Mizzou. Also say Florida, Alabama, and USC lose some of their final games, and Texas and Texas Tech end up being 1-2 in the BCS standings. Texas and Texas Tech would both be placed in the BCS title game. Meanwhile, the BCS STILL has to sit the Big XII champion (which in this case would be Missouri), which would be sent to the Fiesta Bowl.
