Now, any team in the Top 10 of the final BCS standings would be eligible to play in a BCS bowl game, regardless of its conference affiliation.
We previously had 5 BCS Bowl games right? Do we still have that? Any team in the Top 10 is "Eligible", but are there any guarantees, like there was before if you finish in the Top 10?
i.e. if Texas or OU finishes 15th, could they still be picked by a BCS bowl because of their fan base and power they yield?
Or will it be business as usual, where you have a MW team finish in the top 10 and get snubbed by the BCS bowl?
