Sun Belt has five tie ins:

Arizona (Mountain West)
Dollar General (MAC)
Cure (American)
Camellia (MAC)
New Orleans (C-USA)

This should mean the following:

NMSU - Arizona
App State/Ark State/Troy - Dollar General/Cure/New Orleans
Georgia State - Camellia

Arkansas State and Troy (both 6-1 SBC) are playing each other right now, and the winner will be 7-1 alongside Appalachian State.

The Sun Belt was apparently considered for a tie-in with the Frisco (née Miami Beach) Bowl, but that will be American vs. an at-large selection, likely C-USA given their situation.

I'm happy for them. I'm sure they'll travel in huge numbers to whatever bowl they go to.

Love the end zone backdrop.

There could be a swap with the New Mexico bowl with either CUSA or the MW.

Kansas' last Bowl game was in 2008.

Massachusetts, Charlotte, Coastal Carolina and Texas State have never gone Bowling - but all joined FBS in 2009 or later.

Kansas’s last win was in the Orange Bowl too 03-lmfao

I was at the Rice game with some friends who were Rice grads when they beat SMU in 2006 to qualify for the first time in almost 50 years. Everyone was on the field. My daughter was on my shoulders high fiving the football players.

NOLA will be App
Mobile will be Troy
Montgomery will be AState
Cure will be Georgia State
NMSU will go to Tucson

The Arizona Bowl issued a statement last night saying they would be thrilled to host New Mexico State in their bowl. That's a done deal.
