Bowl Eligible Teams - Post Week 11

Time to look at the teams who are bowl eligible following the end of Week 11. Miami, Texas Tech, Arizona, Cal, Tennessee, Arkansas, Cincinnati, South Florida, Ohio, New Mexico, and Nevada all became bowl eligible with six wins this week. A few teams inched their way to eligibility, while a few still are a couple of wins a way from qualifying.




There's 40 bowls this year, and 61 teams have qualified for the 80 spots available. There are still 19 places left open, and only fifteen teams who are a win away from filling them. Eleven teams with four wins still have an outside shot of baking a bowl, but will need either two wins or a lack of enough six-plus win teams to fill out the bowl schedule.

Colorado finds itself 4-7, with a thirteen-game schedule thanks to a road game with Hawaii. That little technicality is enough to keep it around for another week.

Teams that have either become bowl eligible or find themselves "on the brink" of eligibility are indicated by a "*".
