the Ga tech thing raises another question...

looking at this page it appears there are currently 67 bowl eligible teams.

UConn and Cincinnati play each other, so only one of them will become bowl eligible.

Ga tech, even though they are 6-6, can paradoxically lose bowl eligibility because they are forced(?!) to play in their conference's championship game, and a loss makes them 6-7, thus "costing" them a bowl bid

but then, that only leaves 68 bowl eligible teams, and according to this list there are 35 bowl games meaning 70 teams will be needed...

so what happens? I could see them going ahead and allowing Ga tech to accept a bowl bid because of the unusual circumstance that led them to have 7 losses and 6 wins, but thats still only 69... so presumably some 5-7 team is going to a bowl this year... what a joke...
