Liberty will have a spot for the reason that it is the backup to the Cure bowl ... its supporters will travel for their first-ever bowl game. There will be enough unfilled spots to let it happen ... independent of whether any eligible Go5 schools sit home.

Its not up to the Cure Bowl. Its up to the AAC.
I didn't specify a spot at the Cure bowl. With open slots available, and only Go5 schools available to fill them, Liberty will fill one of those slots, because they would be expected to travel best among all of the schools then on offer.

So, for instance, if it comes down to it the Frisco might take them.

With BC and UNC making it, does that make 10 ACC schools plus Notre Dame bowl eligible for 10 bowls plus possibly Citrus? If the SEC can't fill their spots that might make an open slot in the ACC secondary in Birmingham ... which would expect to get a lot of business from filling that spot with Liberty.

With only 1+ school eligible (hoping that the Rainbow Warriors take care of business today), there are a lot of possible scenarios where it isn't Liberty staying home.

Of course there are a lot of scenarios where Liberty gets a bowl game, because they are one of nine (10, if Army becomes eligible) floaters and only one (or 2, if Army is eligible) will not get selected. So between 80% and 90% of these floaters will get a bowl game.

But on the other hand, it is also wrong to assume that Liberty will get in. Not necessarily so.

RE: APR Bowl outlook
what's amazing about this year- we only have 95 teams with fewer than 8 losses(with a few more that will drop off).

How many new bowls are we adding?

I'm telling you guys- we may not be that far away from a year that an 8 loss team goes bowling.

With multiple truly open spots to fill, it would only be necessarily so if this was a world where bowls are looking for fanbases that will travel well.

Except actually this is that world, so Liberty's going to get to go bowling.

Even if it comes down to which school can promise to buy the most tickets ... Liberty is going to win that bidding war against either EMU or Kent State.

What will be exciting is the quiz contest where teams of five players from each of the the top four APR 4-8 teams compete on geography, science, current events, and a secret "bonus" category to win the remaining bowl spot after the 7-5 APR list has been exhausted.

Army loses to Hawaii, so the dust has settled:

79 bowl eligible teams for 78 slots.

so we would have had 5 of the 14 7 loss teams going bowling. And that would be with Army- if they lose vs Navy it'd be only 13 7 loss teams.
