    Georgia Tech vs Kent State Orange bowl

    As this writer points out it could happen - add to that a UF/Rutgers Sugar bowl and you have the BCS at its finest:

    Look what happens if Kent State makes the BCS. The Flashes almost surely would be the last pick of the BCS bowls. Which means a Florida State-Kent State Orange Bowl. Or if you really want to dream, how about 6-6 Georgia Tech upsetting Florida State in the ACC title game. That would give us a 7-6 Georgia Tech against Kent State on New Year’s Night.

    ...Kent State vs. NIU for the MAC Championship.

    Sadly, NIU's loss to us is a much better loss than the one Kent State has (A 47-14 walloping at the hands of 2-10 Kentucky)

    It'd be hard for NIU to jump into that Top 14 sadly..

    They dont need to be top 14. A never before used BCS by-law is going to come into play for the Kent St/NIU winner which says top 16 and ranked higher than an AQ champ (Big East champ is going to be 25 at best) will get at-large bid.

    I think PJ is correct. That's the path most likely if it is to happen. I actually think NIU in a BCS Bowl is good for the game. Probably in the minority, but it seems I usually am.

    And since we beat NIU that means we are basically a BCS level team.

    I don't see it happening. I think NIU wins the MAC but won't jump enough in the polls to qualify for a BCS bid, which is unfortunate, because I truly feel the winner deserves a shot. Not saying that the MAC champion is one of the top 10 teams in the nation, but lets face it they deserve it more than say a Georgia Tech.

    Illuminiti. 1%. Yes, it is. Secret hand shake. Secret ring. I might go to the Orange Bowl. I'm usually down there this that time of year.

    No.

    As a 1%er, I spend most of the winter there, so I drive. I am in my 40's after all. I'm "entitled" to it.
