    If Colorado beats Utah, UCLA will play in the PAC championship game. Right now UCLA is 6-5. They play at USC tomorrow, and a loss would put them 6-6. If they lose at Oregon in the PAC championship, they'd be 6-7. Are they bowl eligible?

    Yes. 6 wins = bowl eligibility.

    Unless their like K State of a couple years ago. Didn't they play 2 d1aa schools that got them to 6 wins but yet they weren't eligible or am I mistaken?

    Is Colorado really going to beat anybody?

    Someone can correct me, but I thought there is a rule if you play 13 games you have to win 7.

    I thought there have been teams that have played at Hawaii, so they get 13 games and they said you have to win 7 in that senario.

    I am surprised. Utah should be ashamed of that performance.

    IIRC there might be a waiver possibility for those in conference championship games.

    Non-losing record means you qualify. There are exceptions for conference champions, but i am not sure how that applies to the conference championship loser. Also only one FCS victory can count towards bowl eligibility.

    Unless there is an exemption for a conference championship game, you must win 7 games if you play a 13 game regular season.

    From searching for past occurrences, looks like it has to be petitioned for to the NCAA, and its been granted in the past.

    Im not sure its actually played out so that the waiver was needed, but i found this:

    Big 12 Receives Post-Season Bowl Waiver - Big 12 Conference - Official Athletic Site

    Also, from the NCAA:
    With the PAC having 7 bowl tie ins and 7 currently eligible teams (including UCLA), UCLA would probably be granted the waiver so that the PAC could fulfill its bowl commitments.

    That was from 2004 when you only played 11 regular season games. It says a 6-6 could make a bowl with this waiver. That's a bit different.

    I don't know how the waiver would play out in this case. It doesn't appear the PAC would be able to fulfill all their bowl slots without UCLA.
