 Miami's decision to ban itself from postseason football this season may have a few bowl executives squirming. With the Hurricanes out of the picture, there are now 61 bowl eligible teams - and 70 available spots in the 35 bowls. A handful of teams still have a chance to reach six wins and join the list of qualifiers, but there may not be enough when it's all said and done.
Before the season, the NCAA announced contingency plans for exactly this type of scenario. There's even a way for 5-7 teams to be selected - it's tied to academic performance - if other alternatives have been exhausted.
The list of 61 eligible teams does not include Georgia Tech, which is 6-5 but could end up 6-7 if it loses this weekend and again in the ACC title game. However, if there aren't enough teams at .500 or better to fill all the bowls, Georgia Tech at 6-7 would have priority over any 5-7 teams.
Meanwhile, here are the 16 teams still on the bubble and what they need to do to become bowl eligible:
Baylor (5-5) must win at home against Texas Tech OR at home against Oklahoma State.
Central Michigan (5-6) must win at Massachusetts.
Connecticut (4-6) must win at Louisville AND at home against Cincinnati.
Georgia Tech (6-5) must win at Georgia OR in the ACC title game against Florida State.
Marshall (5-6) must win at East Carolina.
Michigan State (5-6) must win at Minnesota.
Mississippi (5-6) must win at home against Mississippi State.
Missouri (5-6) must win at Texas A&M.
Pittsburgh (4-6) must win at home against Rutgers AND at South Florida.
Purdue (5-6) must win at home against Indiana.
Rice (5-6) must win at UTEP.
SMU (5-6) must win at home against Tulsa.
Troy (5-6) must win at Middle Tennessee.
Virginia Tech (5-6) must win at home against Virginia.
Wake Forest (5-6) must win at home against Vanderbilt.
West Virginia (5-5) must win at Iowa State OR at home against Kansas.
