6-6 Iowa receives bowl bid

Iowa, at 6-6, accepted an invitation to play in the Alamo Bowl.


I know 6-6 makes a team bowl-eligible, but I also know the rule is all the teams with winning records must be invited first.


I'm starting to get confused on this. I'll do some more searching in the NCAA Rule Book and get back to you this afternoon.


If it's true that a 6-6 team can go before a 7-5 team, I think it's very likely you would see the International Bowl choose Akron over Western Michigan. Of course, the Zips would have to beat the Broncos on Friday.
