    You must excuse him. I am sure the OP got a great response the first time he posted this for his fellow fans. All depends on the demographic.

    I originally did it based off of who to root for and at the end I saw 7 teams above 6-6 as at large bowlers and remembered the Hawkeye incident in 2007. Work was done before the 7-5 statement got added and probably should have left it as a prediction of what non-big 12 bowl we make it to. My bad.

    Didn't realize they changed the 7-5 rule (link for change please as I missed that one)

    Starting with the 2010–11 bowl season, the rule that required the selection of seven-win teams before any 6–6 teams was eliminated.[SUP][5][/SUP] The first season of the new rule saw Temple go uninvited despite going 8–4, including a win over eventual Big East BCS representative Connecticut. In the 2011-12 bowl season, the UCLA Bruins were invited to a bowl game despite a losing record (6-7), while 7-5 winning team Western Kentucky and 6-6 non-losing team Ball State did not receive invites.

    Crazy how it's worked out. 6 guaranteed + 2nd SEC + Notre Dame + Oregon. Clemson fans are not going to be happy.

    Dammit, looks like you're right if the Big 12 only gets one in the BCS.

    I had high hopes for the Military Bowl, but I missed their contingency with the MAC. If Rice loses to UTEP, it will still have an open slot to fill, against a team like Bowling Green or Ohio. But Rice is 5-6 and UTEP is 3-8.

    Meanwhile, the Independence Bowl will likely have two open slots to fill as neither of its tie-ins will get made and it has no contingencies. Would likely be ISU against a mid-major - perhaps one of the Louisiana schools from the Sun Belt.

    The Independence Bowl is not a Big 12 bowl. The Big 12 has 8 bowls this year and is actually cutting back to 7 starting next year. Nobody expected to have nine teams bowl-eligible.

    Liberty Bowl is still on the table... Big East #5 isn't guaranteed yet (root against Pitt and Uconn) and SEC #8 isnt available either.

    Tulsa or UCF V Iowa State.

    That is because there are two Kansas schools (good cop/bad cop) and the other eight are almost equal on the football field.
