APR Bowlnanza Sweepstakes

At least Vanderbilt can pretend fans stayed home to watch their game on SECN Alternate. - HELEN COMER/The Daily News Journal / USA TODAY NETWORK

Briefly: There are 82 bowl slots available. By my count, 73 teams have reached six wins. At least four more are guaranteed, due to matchups between 5-6 teams. That gets us to 77.

Can we get a bowl bid for 5-7 Washington or (checks rankings)...MTSU? Probably not, but let's give it a run.

(This is what happens when Vanderbilt football is a pile, and therefore we turn our attention elsewhere.)

All times Central Standard Time, the Lord's preferred timezone. 5-win teams in bold.
