Instead of adding/creating more bowl games, they need to up the eligibility to 7 wins instead of 6.  But that would be too logical of a solution for our institutions of higher learning to figure out and make happen.

Before 7 wins, make teams finish with at least a .500 record in their conferences.

I agree on raising the Bowl qualification to minimum 7 wins.  Currently 84 schools out of 130 in FBS are going Bowling.  Only 46 schools stay home.  That is excessive and results in many participation trophies handed out in a lot of random matchups of average teams . While it's fun for the players and fans, with only 5 FBS wins (+1 FCS) needed to gain a Bowl, it waters-down the achievement.  The main benefit is national media and a spotlight on the program and schools gain 2-3 weeks of extra practices over non-participants!   

NT (and Seth) are lucky they are set up for success in this last minute made-up "classic" Bowl game 20 miles from campus.  Would we be as excited if the Bowl was same opponent but up in Detroit?  Probably not.  I would rather FBS someday be like every other level of College and High School football and have a true playoff with meaningful postseason games ending with a true champion achieved on the field.

Guys, there are 42 bowl games, and we have been to 3 of them with losing records. The only way to fill them is with 6&6 teams and one or two with 5 wins. The fans love it, the players love it, and coaches love it because it basically give them  spring training in the fall. We were chosen for the Frisco Classic because of the perception that we can fill a 18,000 seat stadium, so lets just do that.

I know I will get hate for this but impressed by the SDSU and UTSA match-up, to bad it is only in an 18k stadium. Easily the best G5 v G5 matchup

I think the  App State v WKU could be a good game.

BYU looks to be the G5 that got screwed the most. How does BYU go 5-0 against the Pac 12 and end up in Shreveport?

Where else are they going to go?  I think the worst part for BYU is that the major attraction in Shreveport is the casinos and, well, there you go.  On the bright side, Shreveport is easily navigated via bicycle.

They should be in a NY6 bowl, but the Group of 5 doesn't get a replacement if the top ranked team makes the playoffs. It's a total sham.

They signed an agreement with the independence bowl but yea, they should’ve gotten a better opponent.

Its a good pairing. Looks like the New Orleans Bowl lost out drawing Marshall.

I read ESPN had rights to the CUSA champ and could put them in one of their Bowl properties.  The New Orleans and Independence Bowls are not ESPN properties.  Thus, they still wanted a good matchup and good attendance so selected them for Frisco (attendance reasons) vs SDSU (record reasons).

But UTSA is NOT happy coming to Frisco instead of the other possible Bowls.  Here is some comments:

Who would have ever thought someone would describe the NOLA Bowl as a "higher profile" bowl? 🤣

They need to stop bitching. They're playing one of the best G5 teams in the country in a bowl their fans can easily travel to. You can't do much better as a G5.

The only school that REALLY got screwed was BYU.
