Being in the Outhouse Bowl would sure be better than sitting home year after year ! Move to FBS!

FCS wins (one) count as well.

A couple years ago, a 5-7 Nebraska team was in a bowl (and won).

Was almost a shortage of teams this year.

This year is not the first, and it will certainly not be the last year FBS will struggle to have enough 6 win teams but fret not; like the first year it happened the NCAA will issue rule tweaks to get around their own rules.

As long as the broadcast money is flowing, bowl game sponsors are there to cover the expenses of the teams playing and the money paid to the G5’s and FCS remains a fixed expense, it’s a no lose situation for the P5s.
