I THINK NOT!!!
This article in USA TODAY, pointing out that 68 teams are needed to fill 34 bowl game slots got me to thinking. The BCS games: Rose, Orange, Sugar, Fiesta, and the title game in Miami may pull one or two Big Ten teams.
BUT the Big Ten has contracts with 6 bowls:
1) The Motor City Bowl vs. the MAC 2) The Champs Sports Bowl vs. the ACC 3) The Alamo Bowl vs. the Big 12 4) The Insight Bowl vs. the Big 12 5) The Outback Bowl vs. the SEC 6) The Capital One Bowl vs. the SEC
Given all the slots needing to be filled, a 6-6 team is bound to make it. OR to put it another way we just need 5 more wins to keep Michigan's bowling streak alive.
Don't give up, sports fans!! It's easy math!!!
