Now that there is a fifth BCS Bowl game and one school from a Non-BCS Conference has the chance to be awarded that game. If qualified, who do you think will end up getting it?

Notre Dame will finish 6-6 and get it. =D

Hawaii has to be the favorite

Since I know it's the answer you want to hear, Hawaii. Them, Tulsa, and Air Force are the only Non-BCS teams that are undefeated. If not them, if TCU runs the table with the only loss to Texas than maybe them.

I didn't think it was automatic, I thought it was just if they were ranked higher than one of the teams that won the conference. Like last year it was Wake Forest.

I meant Wake Forest was the conference champ that was ranked lower than Boise, which got them in.

Say what again? I'm confused. Wake was the ACC champ and they get an automatic bid. What did they have to do with Boise getting in?

Because Boise was ranked higher than one of the conference champs (Wake) they got in, that's what I thought the rule was. Let me check.

Here are the rules

With this format, the champions of the Atlantic Coast, Big East, Big Ten, Big 12, Pacific-10 and Southeastern Conferences will continue to play annually in one of the BCS bowls through the post-season following the regular season. In addition, one conference champion from among Conference USA, Mid-American, Mountain West, Sun Belt, and Western Athletic Conferences will automatically qualify to play in a BCS bowl if it is:

(1) ranked among the top 14 teams in the final BCS standings; or

(2) ranked among the top 16 teams in the final BCS standings and ranked higher than the champion of one of the conferences whose champion has an annual automatic berth in a BCS bowl.

This is what I was thinking of.

Yeah there is no non BCS-automatic birth, but nice try at creating another thread about Hawaii D-Unit. ;)

Oh very good research!

I'd say if Hawaii goes undefeated, they have to be the team to get it. They are ranked #18 in the USA Today poll right now. 14 is not far away.

If they lose a game, they are out though. No doubt about that.

Sorry, I thought there was. My mistake, but at least I learned something new. :D

My purpose wasn't to create "another" Hawaii thread (as if there is one)... but it was to stir discussion on who could be in the race for it.

...and I edited the post title and original post.

Hawaii if they go 12-0 and win most every game commandingly

I'd say Hawaii. I don't see any team on their schedule that they should lose to, except for maybe Washington.
