Im not sure they deserve a bowl bid. The teams they have played against so far are a combined 28 and 44.
Now im not saying that all teams play hard opponents. But at least 1 big game would help your cause.
You want to play crappy teams? Fine, but dont expect a bowl game in the place of a team who played, OU, or Auburn, or USC, or FSU.
Now aTm is a good team, but they were playing in Utah, and it was the first game of the season.
Utah deserves to be in the top 20. But bowl game? come on..
