    5-7 Northwestern is projected to play in the TicketCity Bowl.
    Sure.
    Fine.
    With the billion bowls out there, we might not have enough 6-6 teams.



    BUT.....

    Alabama is projected to play in the Hawai'i Bowl.

    Alabama is 4-8!!!!

    That's insane! Does the game actually allow non-bowl eligible teams to play?

    It is Alabama after all...even at that record I believe they are BCS championship material.

    I'm hoping that's just a really bad projection and that they don't really get a bowl birth.

    We'll find out in a few minutes.

    Alabama is indeed playing in a bowl game after a 4-8 season.....

    I don't expect anyone to go back and look at all the teams' records, but did any 6 win teams get passed on for 'Bama (and NU for that matter)?

    I would assume they had to be, I don't think it's possible to have too few six win teams

    I think it's very possible and even in real life I expect them to run into that situation in the near future. There's just too many bowls now.

    You shut your mouth when talking about NU!
