Bowl Eligible Teams: Week 13.

It's time to go down what teams are bowl eligible following the end of Week 13, and for most of college football, the end of the regular season. Only 75 out of 80 teams needed to for the 40 bowl games out there have a 6-6 or better record. It's looking as though some 5-7 teams are going to creep in.



To fill the five remaining bowl positions, the teams with the best APR (Academic Progress Rate) among the 5-7 schools would be considered for the bowls. CBS Sports' Jerry Palm lists seven schools that qualify under this rule.

Here's the list of all bowl-qualified teams via conference. Teams that qualified this weekend are identified with both an "*" and their names in italic.

The 5-7 teams whose APR may lead them to a bowl have their APR listed next to their record.
