What is the criteria for a BCS At Large Bid?


Posted: Nov 9, 2012 7:54 AM
 

You have to be in the top 12 of the BCS right, and not be an automatic qualifier to one of the BCS bowls?

Right now if FSU, Clemson, and Oregon win out....we would jump Oregon State, South Carolina, and SHOULD jump Florida (although we all know how the SEC bias is).

Wouldn't that be enough for an at-large bid? Who would they pick over us?


Last year you just had to have a 2012

preseason Heisman candidate at QB. He had to make Sammich Maker wet and be very tall!

If there are fewer than 10 automatic qualifiers, then the bowls will select at-large participants to fill the remaining berths. An at-large team is any Football Bowl Subdivision team that is bowl-eligible and meets the following requirements:

A. Has won at least nine regular-season games, and
B. Is among the top 14 teams in the final BCS Standings.
No more than two teams from a conference may be selected, regardless of whether they are automatic qualifiers or at-large selections, unless two non-champions from the same conference are ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in the final BCS Standings.


FYI: Automatic qualifiers:


Posted: Nov 9, 2012 8:10 AM
 

Automatic Qualification
1. The top two teams in the final BCS Standings shall play in the National Championship Game.

2. The champions of the Atlantic Coast, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, and Southeastern conferences will have automatic berths in one of the participating bowls through the 2013 regular season.

3. The champion of Conference USA, the Mid-American Conference, the Mountain West Conference, the Sun Belt Conference, or the Western Athletic Conference will earn an automatic berth in a BCS bowl game if either:

A. Such team is ranked in the top 12 of the final BCS Standings, or,
B. Such team is ranked in the top 16 of the final BCS Standings and its ranking in the final BCS Standings is higher than that of a champion of a conference that has an annual automatic berth in one of the BCS bowls.
No more than one such team from Conference USA, the Mid-American Conference, the Mountain West Conference, the Sun Belt Conference, and the Western Athletic Conference shall earn an automatic berth in any year. (Note: a second team may be eligible for at-large eligibility as noted below.) If two or more teams from those conferences satisfy the provisions for an automatic berth, then the team with the highest finish in the final BCS Standings will receive the automatic berth, and the remaining team or teams will be considered for at-large selection if it meets the criteria.

4. Notre Dame will have an automatic berth if it is in the top eight of the final BCS Standings.

5. If any of the 10 slots remain open after application of provisions 1 through 4, and an at-large team from a conference with an annual automatic berth for its champion is ranked No. 3 in the final BCS Standings, that team will become an automatic qualifier, provided that no at-large team from the same conference qualifies for the national championship game.

6. If any of the 10 slots remain open after application of provisions 1 through 5, and if no team qualifies under paragraph No. 5 and an at-large team from a conference with an annual automatic berth for its champion is ranked No. 4 in the final BCS Standings, that team will become an automatic qualifier provided that no at-large team from the same conference qualifies for the national championship game.


We're in if we win out IMO

We will probably get a better matchup than FSU as well. Louisville isn't a brand name you look forward to playing.


If we win out, then no one outside of the Top 14 matters*

(* UNLESS La Tech gets into the Top 16, but I don't see that happening given that they are 20 now and play very weak opponents from here on out).

So, we are in good shape. Despite our Orange Bowl performance last year (both on the field and in the ratings), I think we'd be a VERY attractive team for a bowl. We would be 11-1 with some of the best offensive talent in the country to put on display. We would also have beaten two SEC teams and very possibly be looking at matching up against a third.

Things that help us:
1) Oregon winning out (bye bye Oregon State and Stanford...who are less attractive than us from a fan perspective in New Orleans anyway. This would leave Oregon as the only PAC-12 team gettng a bid).
2) Kansas State winning out (I don't want Texas creeping into the Top 14, which means Kansas State has to beat them at home).

If those things happen, it's almost impossible for us not to get a bid.

LA Tech would have to be ranked higher than Nebraska (Big 10 champ) to qualify in Top 16. WAC/MAC/USA/etc needs to be in top 12 or AHEAD of any AQ conferences


True. I just didn't want to get that detailed because I

don't think they'll hit the first criteria (inside the Top 16).

A history of winning big bowl games doesn't hurt

Our biggest factor is going to be going up against the top 14 from the Pac 12 #2 (Stanford, Oregon State, USC), because there are 3 slots available and the SEC #2 and the Big 12 #2 (Oklahoma) will get two of them. If the Rose opts for the Pac #2 we are going are spending new years eve in Atlanta any way you slice it (unless Texas and Oklahoma cannot crack the top 12.

If we win out, Clemson will be only one-loss At-Large eligible team and ranked in top 10.




Be a member of the SEC***

If FSU beats UF, we should jump UF but not if they beat FSU.***

Really doesn't matter to us


Posted: Nov 9, 2012 9:51 AM
 

The SEC will get 2 teams in, for sure. I really don't care who the 2nd team is, or if we're ranked above them. But FSU beating UF would be better for our SOS than if they lose


The three teams to worry about are....


Posted: Nov 9, 2012 9:55 AM
 

Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Oregon State.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

Maryland, NC State and Sakerlina. Win those and we are in!


Depends on some other teams too...

whic his beyond our control. However, one thing is for sure, if we don't win out, it definitely becomes a moot point.
