05:19 PM ET 11.26 | If Georgia Tech loses to heavy favorite Florida State in the ACC Championship Game, the Jackets would then be 6-7 and need a special waiver from the NCAA to go to a bowl, which would also crowd out a team that didn't finish with a losing record. However, Tech is only in the title game due to UNC being ineligible and Miami giving up its bid.

Just one more reason that about 10 bowl games need to just go away.

This...why continue to reward mediocrity?

Who would invite them to a bowl?

What'd be even more hilarious would be if GT were to somehow knock off FSU, and claim the ACC title at 7-6.

This is simple.

No.

Their sixth win isn't even bowl eligible because it came against an FCS team - Presbyterian. This is a very stupid article.

Brace for it, Miami's self-imposed penalty takes them out of the ACC CG, so Tech is in it vs FSU. If a team plays for the ACC CG they are contractually obligated to fall no lower than the Sun Bowl...if they win, the Orange Bowl. Unbelievable, right? Lol

And get this, if by some crazy reason Tech beat FSU, they may very well be playing Kent State in the Orange Bowl....ROTFLMAO

Actually, no, that would not be hilarious.

One win against an FCS team does count toward bowl eligibility, actually.

I disagree. As a non-recovering CFB junkie, I like having a couple extra weeks of games to watch before the CBB season gets interesting. (Plus, I'm a Bengals fan, so most seasons I don't have much interest in the NFL playoffs.)

For Dollars?

You're right, I did misread that rule.

I do think that Presbyterian really streches the idea of deserving opponent. 0-6 in their own FCS conference.

Tech still doesn't deserve to go to a bowl when they lose to FSU.

Oh, come on, EWO, I said "somehow", and you know that's more like no-way, no-how.

How's EJ doing?
