Ryan's Bowl Eligibility Numbers after Week 12

If there are more eligible teams than there are bowl bids, it's usually Sun Belt and/or MAC teams that get left out.

Overall Numbers

  • 78 bowl bids
  • 70 teams currently eligible
  • 26 teams still competing for eligibility. As Jason Kirk notes, there are three elimination games, so a maximum of 23 could become eligible.

  • 6 teams eligible (Buffalo, NIU, Ohio, EMU, Toledo, WMU)
  • 1 team could still become eligible (Miami)

Sun Belt numbers
