Re: bowl matchups (UPDATED)

I think we need to hope that the Papa Johns takes a higher up C-USA team like East Carolina so that we can be seen as a good choice for St. Pete.

I think this has come down to the only way we get in, if C-USA steals one of our alternate tie-ins and moves its other teams around.  Troy to New Orleans, ULL to Independence, and FAU to St. Pete.  This is how it would look:

Tulsa - Liberty Bowl
East Carolina - Papa Johns Bowl (Birmingham, AL) (Game against a Big East team rather than against a MAC team in GMAC Bowl)
Rice - Texas Bowl
Houston - Armed Forces Bowl (Ft. Worth, TX)
Memphis - GMAC (Mobile, AL)
Southern Miss - New Orleans Bowl

St. Pete Bowl - FAU
Independence Bowl (LA) - ULL
New Orleans Bowl - Troy


It's a longshot but if East Carolina takes the Papa Johns, then Memphis can go to the closer GMAC bowl, and St. Pete is sitting looking for a good team that can travel well….The Sun Pass Bowl, The Battle on I-75, The Okeechobee Bowl, East Coast v. West Coast, two record setting teams battling it out for bragging rights.

Well it's no longer Sunday morning and we're still in the running for Motor City. Unlikely but who knows what happens

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!
