They aren't eligible for the G5 spot but they can make a NY6 if they are ranked high enough

I don't think so, but I'm not sure. If they aren't, this might make a case for them to join us. They might be the best team this year in our conference.

BYU can not take that bid - goes to the highest CFP-ranked champion of a non-contract-bowl-conference.
BYU can make the playoff if top 4.
BYU can get a NY6 at-large bid if ranked high enough. This year, five bids in Cotton, Peach. Fiesta are available, so probably need to be at least #8 or#9 in CFP ranking for that

You also realize this is game 5 vs game 2 on each team. We are no where near a complete team in synch unlike BYU who came in with hype and momentum.

Houston is really talented but playing like ****. BYU is like a well oiled machine. Not flashy but just working cleanly

Thanks to all for the explanation.

If BYU goes undefeated but still plays in a crap bowl, they will probably have to ask themselves some hard questions about the realities of playing as an Independent.

Houston Cougars eat their Bougars. I can say that, because my High School was the Conant Cougars and that was every opponents chant when we played them. We never had a comeback for that.

Before the game and after watching UH vs Tulane I thought Houston matched up well physically with BYU. I was wrong. BYU dwarfs Houston across both fronts. They’d match up well with the SEC or B10 in the trenches.

Memphis fans have no right to take issue with the Astros for their cheating ways

I was waiting to say this, but I have actually been thinking Houston's lines have done well.
UH O line I saw giving Tune time against a 4-man rush. (Apples to oranges, but BYU only ever rushed three against Navy and blew us up)
UH D line has gotten pressure, even sacks against those 28 year olds.
Difference so far -- to me -- is Wilson is just pretty good, and it seems like all his targets are also 6'5" and bulky.
UH is not out-athleted, might even have the edge. But outsized 11 vs 11. Could turn into mass vs speed.

It helps that all the BYU players are in their 30s
