Kind of agree with Leach here, pretty dumb to limit your teams that have a chance of making it. Does potentially open up more spots for AAC teams if it comes down to it.
Washington State coach Mike Leach called the conference’s policy, which is in effect for this season, “a solution searching for a problem.”
“If we had a 5-7 team lucky enough to make a bowl, they could probably use the practice and the players would probably appreciate the chance to play another game,” Leach said. “Why should we limit opportunities when other conferences aren’t?”
There will again be 39 FBS bowl games this season.
