Default Re: Aggy vs Bama

Question for any bowl experts here... what would it take for the Longhorns to meet the Aggies in a bowl game?

Well right now CBS has them projected to meet in the Cotton Bowl. So if you want that match-up, probably best to hope Texas doesn't lose besides to KState.

Also, if Texas beats KSU, they might get an at-large bid against A&M in the Fiesta.

How would A&M get an at large over LSU? Or how would Texas get one over OU? (assuming they all win out)

I don't see this going any other way than A&M and UT meeting for the first time ever in a bowl game, and it will be at the Cotton Bowl.

Edit: Why the hell is the title "aggy"? This isn't the Hornfans forum.

I dislike A&M but I have to admit, they played a hell of a game.

Roll Tide!

It impresses me that this college system makes enough sense to someone to be able to make a post such as this with confidence

It would take the Fiesta wanting to showcase A&M and Texas and picking them instead of the "next best" team. Once the guaranteed spots are taken, the BCS game committees are free to select any team in the top 14 of the BCS.

I could see A&M making a BCS bowl in that case, but unless Texas pulls off an upset in Manhattan, I don't see them getting a BCS bowl. They are 15 in the computers now, and a win over TCU likely won't move them up much. I think they will be just outside the top 14 and ineligible for the BCS, in which case they end up in the Cotton Bowl.

The question will then be which two teams from the SEC go to BCS bowl games? I think the answer will be the SEC champion (likely Bama) and one of Georgia, LSU, Florida or South Carolina. Several of those teams have their final game against a ranked opponent or will be in the CCG, which will keep them ahead of A&M who only has lowly SHSU and Mizzou to play. We would need quite a miracle of upsets and losses to push us into an at large bid at this point.

I think A&M is going to the Cotton Bowl regardless, but they may end up playing OU if they don't get an at large bid. I think the strongest possibility at this point is A&M/UT in the Cotton Bowl, and it will be quite an interesting game with more national appeal than I can ever remember before.

Well, the Capital one has been on record they like having different teams and SC, Bama, LSU, Georgia and FL have been the teams in teh last 5 years, so it's possible they pick A&M even if one of those schools have the same or slightly better record.
