Final score from Cincinnati, OH: Cincinnati- 35, Connecticut- 27.
This win seals WVU’s bid to the BCS in a 3-way tie with Cincinnati and Louisville, with WVU attaining the higher rank in the BCS by Big East tiebreaker rules.
This is WVU’s first trip to the BCS since the 07-08 season and the Fiesta Bowl vs. Oklahoma. Notice that Bill Stewart never took WVU to the BCS, but Holgorsen did, IN HIS FIRST YEAR?
This is my last request to tell all the Stewart lovers to go jump off Cooper’s Rock.
BUT… with WVU going to the BCS, the destiny is unknown. With Houston laying a bag of turds to Southern Miss in the C-USA title game (Houston was undefeated and ranked 6th), that could open up a spot in the BCS. Let me see if I can figure this out… AFTER THE JUMP!
Rose Bowl- Pac 10 (Oregon) vs. Big 10 (Michigan State/Wisconsin )
Sugar Bowl- SEC (probably Georgia) vs. At-Large (2nd to last pick)
Fiesta Bowl- Big 12 (Oklahoma State or Oklahoma) vs. At-Large (1st AL pick)
Orange Bowl- ACC (Virginia Tech or Clempsum) vs. At Large (last pick)
Other BCS-eligible teams: Stanford, Arkansas, Oklahoma, West Virginia (Big East Champion guaranteed a bid.)
I’m projecting WVU to the Orange Bowl in Miami!!!
