Only 15 teams in all of college football between us and the college football playoff.

I'm very pleasantly surprised! If the season ended today, we'd be making plans for Big D and the Cotton Bowl!!

The program got great exposure during this program with not only them talking about the Wave being the highest ranked G5 team, but also mentioning how they would qualify in a 12 team playoff, as well as showing their ranking throughout the night, and at the end also projecting them in the Cotton Bowl against USC.

If the 12 team playoff were in affect and today's rankings were the final ones, we would be the 12th seed, playing Georgia, the 5 seed for the right to play TCU, the 4 seed. The Athletic has a great article about how it would all shake out.

The athletic got it wrong. They would play at Michigan who's 5th and would play Clemson with a win.

No, it didn't. You're wrong, read the article. The expanded CFP formula differs from the current one, Tennessee would get the SEC bye, Georgia would be the 5 seed, Michigan the 6th. TCU would be the 4 seed. It's not as simple as taking the CFP rankings and filling in the brackets, the highest ranked Conference winners get a bye, no conference can get two into the top 4 seeds.

You're right! I stand corrected.

Hope not. Here’s why. Imagine traveling and spending a bunch of money for few days to go see the Wave and you’re out numbered 20 to 1 on the streets of Arlington/Dallas by LSU fans. You can best believe they will be giving you hell all week in hotels, restaurants etc. I’d rather enjoy this bowl experience without the harassment. Bring on Southern Cal.

The Cotton Bowl will be lobbying for lsu, simply for the reasons you have lisited, that you would rather have sc..... first Tulane needs to go 1-0 this week or it is on to the Indy Bowl

Absolutely. But for once I’m hoping they stay in La for the Sugar and the 11am Dec 31 KO lol.

I am hopeful Tulane can win it's next two games, and let the bowl krap work itself out, most schools, eligible for New Years day games have at least two more games to play..SC still has ND and Oregon to play....I may be mistaken, but the only NY6 bowl a G5 can go to is the Cotton....

Jerry Palm of CBS has Cincinnati & Tennesse in the Cotton Bowl, and LSU in the Sugar Bowl v. K-State. Jerry apparently thinks the Wave will lose on Friday to the Bearcats. :x https://www.cbssports.com/college-footb ... -shuffles/

We might have to beat Cincy twice back to back. That’s tough. Or they may need to beat us twice. I don’t really like how that back to back came about.
I rather beat UC and then host UCF at home with a chance to revenge the first game loss.

Much better chance to get to cotton Bowl playing Cincy than UCF if we can win Friday.
