Bowl Eligibility Watch: Six teams become bowl eligible.


The 2016 college football bowl picture got a little bit clearer in Week 6. Well, as clear as it was going to get with LSU vs. Florida being postponed over concerns about Hurricane Matthew.

The SEC faces some tough decisions as it tries to untangle a messy situation that in theory could have ramifications for at least the SEC Championship Game, the College Football Playoff and the New Year's Six bowls. That is if Alabama and Tennessee somehow manage not to be the SEC schools meeting in the SEC Championship Game.

As for 'Bama, it along with Clemson, Michigan, Texas A&M, Washington, and Western Michigan became the first six teams to reach six wins this season, thus reaching the win threshold needed to clinch a bowl bid this season.

Ten more teams have a chance for bowl eligibility with a win in Week 7.
