Anybody think that if Utah goes undefeated they will land the Fiesta bowl? Currently they are #7 in the BCS...they need to be in the top 6 to guarantee a lock in a BCS Bowl.

All I know is that I'm tired of seeing the same old teams play (ie-Miami, Florida, Tennessee, USC, Oklahoma, Texas, etc...) and I want to see what this high-powered offense can do against a quality top 10 big name school. I think with a quarterback like Alex Smith who leads in passing and is a Heisman candidate can take them over the top.

What do you guys think?

I have a few thoughts about Utah.

a) Too bad A & M can't play them now. It would be a different game.

b) I only saw that one game against A & M who put up no resistance to them at all but yea they look like a really good team.

c) Would be good for their program if they got a nice bowl bid. It is nice to see different teams participating.

Let's see how Utah's season plays out....if they're still undefeated at the end....then by all means give them a BCS Bowl berth.

I made a point to stay uplate last Sat. to see Utah. Game started here at 10:30 EST. Yes, Utah belongs. Their offence can score on anybody. But since alot of money is on the line, politics will kill them. Big 12, Big 10, SEC, whoever swing a lot of weight. What is it, 12M for a major bowl for the school?

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..

Utah opened the season against a hard opponent. They beat aTm badly even if it was the first game of the season. It was the first game for both teams so they both are going to have their problems. Also, aTm lost to Baylor of all schools...Utah hasn't lost a game yet...and definitely not to a terrible team like the Aggies did. Besides...all you can do is play who is on your schedule and in your conference.

I wish the NCAA would cut out the computer rankings. Jeff Sagarin kills me, and my Georgia Bulldogs. In Sagarins computer poll he has both A&M and Oklahoma State ranked ahead of Georgia. Georgia has one loss and A&M and Oklahoma State have each lost three times. Why do we involve these damn computers in this?

The money is generally divided up between each team in the conference. So if Texas goes to a bowl that pays 5 million, the Big 12 gets that money and splits it up between schools in the conference.
