UB Bulls Bowl Game Weekend Rooting Interests

New, 8 comments

With our MACtion out of the way on Tuesday, what should we root for during this college football week? Well lets root for a Bowl Game...

Brian Losness-USA TODAY Sports

As UB has failed to reach the magic number of 7 wins, but can still easily get to the semi-magic number of six wins, UB is rooting for teams to fail to reach bowl eligibility.

There will be 76 bowl teams in 2014.

51 Teams have already become bowl eligible.

Leaving 25 vacancies that UB hopes are not filled.

After looking at every bowl eligible team's schedule, I have concluded that 8 teams will inevitable become bowl eligible.

That means 42 teams, are chasing the final 17 bowl spots. To keep UB's hopes alive, 16 or fewer teams need to make it.

Your week 12 UB Bowl Hail Mary rooting guide:

Wed 11/12 Umass over Ball State Eliminates Ball State
Thurs 11/13 ECU over Cincy Keeps Cincy non-eligible
USC over Cal Keeps Cal non-eligible

Saturday 11/15 Duke over Va Tech Puts Tech one loss away from elimination
Penn St over Temple Keeps Temple non-eligble, makes PSU eligible

If every result follows the table:

3 teams will earn bowl eligibility and 9 teams will be eliminated from bowl contention.

Resulting in 38 teams chasing 22 spots.

Minus 5 more estimated shoo-ins, it leaves 33 teams chasing 17 spots.

The chance is slim, but there is still a chance.
