C-USA Bowl Games State of the Union
With just two weeks to go, there are currently six teams with at least six wins and bowl eligibility – UAB (9-1), FIU (7-3), Louisiana Tech (7-3), Middle Tennessee (7-3), North Texas (8-3) and Marshall (6-3).
There is one team with five wins and one win from bowl eligibility – Florida Atlantic (5-6).
There are two teams with four wins and two wins from bowl eligibility – Charlotte (4-6) and Southern Miss (4-5).
Conference USA can have as many as eight bowl-eligible teams and as few as six, depending on the results of the final two weeks of the regular season.
C-USA has six primary bowl selections in 2018: the Boca Raton Bowl, Hawai’i Bowl, Bahamas Bowl, New Mexico Bowl, and R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl, along with either the Gasparilla Bowl or the First Responder Bowl.
The league has a secondary agreement with the Independence Bowl, should the ACC or SEC not be able to fill its spot in that game and a secondary agreement with the Frisco Bowl (Frisco, Texas).
It appears the only shot for the Owls is another league member being selected for the Frisco Bowl, thereby freeing up a primary tie-in spot.
