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.

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


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.

Sounds like it. However, we have seen bowl swaps before and given NMSU's finances, the NM bowl would a better deal for them. However, the AZ bowl will be best for the players as the AZ bowl does a bang up job and as many coaches have said they compare it to how they were treated in prior BCS bowls.
This will be a bowl that will move up the pecking order in the next bowl cycle.

I agree it could happen, but IIRC, the New Mexico Bowl is about as far away from NMSU as the Arizona Bowl is.

If i were a player I'd rather make an out of state trip, makes it seem more like a real bowl game.

In good weather Albuquerque is about 45 minutes closer to Las Cruces then Tucson

Weather is much nicer in late December in Tucson though

Probably more alumni in the Albuquerque area although phoenix has quite a few

Whether it’s in Albuquerque or Tucson, they’ll show up in big numbers. They have alumni in El Paso, all over New Mexico and Phoenix. This is a once in a lifetime chance to see the Aggies play in a bowl game. I’m really happy for them.

The Independents should have one guaranteed bowl tie in as the list of independents grows. 05-stirthepot 07-coffee3

Eastern Michigan was able to make a bowl last year for the first time in 30 years so why not NMSU in a bowl this year.

That's a great point now there are 5 independents that aren't in a P5 conference (BYU, Army, NMSU, UMass, Liberty) you would have to think the G5 at least will try to put a few bowls together to accommodate.

MAC could throw up a Hall of Fame bowl in Canton vs. UMass/Liberty if bowl eligible for an easy bowl win.
