Since rutgers beat louisville, and if we (wvu) in out and beat rutgers

Which team would be going to a BCS game??

How does this all work?

Whoever wins the Big East gets the Orange Bowl like spyder pointed out in another thread. I'm not sure how the tie breaker would work out.

So if WVU wins out, do you think we'd get the nod then?

Because louisville has to drop farther than us, atleast to 12 or 13th

I think if West Va beats Rutgers then they would get the bid because I assume they would be ranked the highest out of the 3 teams . . . however I know before all of this BCS nonsense . . . Bowls had a great influence who they would want to take . . . I doubt that is the case now.

The rankings wont really matter. It will depend on the tie breaker for who wins the division. So WVU could be ranked ahead of UofL but if UofL has the tie breaker and wins the divions they'd get the bowl game I believe. I doubt the tie breaker for who wins the conference is who is the highest ranked team. I suppose one of the teams who doesnt win the division could get an at large bid though

But if West Va beats Rutgers
Rutgers beat the Lou
the Lou beat West Va

no tiebreakers there.

Maybe Points scored? Iono

in the SEC Divisions, they go to the BCS standings, i believe. so that's why i bet the Big East does the same thing in a three-way tie.

Thats very intresting, like i mentioned

I would assume that the higest BCS ranked team would get in

Because reguadless, if WVU beats Rutgers, that will leave all 3 teams with 1 loss

Ok, I wasnt sure if they'd use that or some other way of determining it. I guess BCS ranking makes the most sense

if WVU beats rutgers, which would be the last game of the season, then they'd definitely be the highest ranked of the three.

I think WV if they win out gets the BCS bid.

I also think the Orange Bowl is the place the BIG EAST team ends up vs the ACC Champ. Unless by some minor miracle Rutgers finds its way to the final game.

You sure that's what happened when UTenn, UF, UGA were all tied for the East?...I thought it was the away team in a head to head match

If I remember right that was up to the league (in this case the SEC) coaches. They voted. BUT that was just who won the EAST, not the SEC. I think for the Big East since they don't have a champ game... would probably be down to either one of the poll rankings or the BCS rankings. IT all depends on how the bylaws of the Big East are written. Since every conference is different and some have a champ game and others don't... I think it could be diff for each conf.

If it works like the Big Ten Conference, than the team that has won the conference most recent is out. They take the team that hasn't won the conference to have their chance to represent.

:yes: Kat is right. It is determined by BCS ranking, for the SEC anyway.

WV will be a very tough game for Rutgers for the fact that the QB can run.

But they need to forget this game ASAP and get ready for Cinc.

That's right and I'd bet the ranch that this is exactly what will happen. You'll see WVU getting the BCS bid but it won't be for a Natl. championship unless others get knocked off yet again.

I think WVU will beat Rutgers as well. But, WVUhas no shot at the NC game at this point in the season. The way they played against Louisville shut them down. Ohio State/Michigan loser will still be ranked higher than WVU in the final BCS standings, as will many teams, IE-Florida, Auburn, Notre Dame, Texas...

What are you talking about?! Boise State would kill any team from the Big East this year. Boise State is the best mid-major team in the NCAA right now. I think Boise State would beat Notre Dame. Boise State's offense is too strong and Notre Dame's defense is too weak.

Boise St isn't on the level of any team in the 6 BCS conferences. Even the weaker of the conferences like the ACC or Big East top teams. They can't compete.

This isn't the UTAH team of a couple years ago who had a pro QB running the show. Boise St isn't that kind of team. That UTAH team had horses this Boise team doesn't.

Texas would beat them by 40

i don't care. i want to see that game. i love seeing an underdog reach levels they've never reached before. UConn vs. George Mason. :wink:

I want to see that game too. And they deserve a BCS bowl game.

I'm just saying don't call a possible WV-Wake Forest match up in the Orange Bowl the worst BCS bowl game ever.

When you could have Texas put up a 50 spot on Boise and beat them by 6 touchdowns. That was my point.

And I used the George Mason example last week and got raked over the coals for bringing up such an example. But it's an example that fits and works

boise state is well-coached and their offense is great. i don't see how anyone could beat them by that much. especially texas, who gave up 500 yards to texas tech. as long as zabransky doesn't have a 22-INT game like he did at georgia last year...

No one call a WVU and Wake Forest the worst BCS match-up ever. I called Rutgers and WVU the worst EVER and by a wide margin, I might add.

You can't comare it to either a Texas/ND vs Boisie State match-up because both Texas and ND have been in the top 10 all year.

If Georgia Mason would of been placed in the Final Four for winning a mediocre confrence then that example would "fit." But it doesn't "fit" because, Georgia Mason showed they belonged by advancing through the tourny.

I mean come-on !!!!!! They beat friggin UCONN to make the Final Four, Friggin UCONN !!!!!!!

Are you kidding me? you must not have watched the game

We ran all over them, 2 fumbles, one which we got back on the very next pass play... and a punt that went to the wrong side is what got us, and our Secondary is terrible...

Our offense had nothing to do with that game to a extent, slaton getting injured was huge though

It would never happen. Boise is better, this year, than they have been in recent memory; they are even better than when they played Louisville in the Liberty Bowl or when they played Georgia.

People downplay Boise because of those two losses as somehow being "evidence" of the quality of their program. But mind you that during the Liberty Bowl, Louisville had the number 1 offense in the nation--and the year that Georgia won Boise, Georgia ended up in the top 5.
