2018 Bowl Eligibility Watch: Sixteen teams are two games away from bowl eligibility.


Bowl Eligibility Watch 2018

Week 4 of the 2018 college football season is over, and fifteen teams are 4-0, with one (Hawai'i) sitting at 4-1. That means that teams becoming bowl eligible (six or more wins) can happen as early as two weeks from now.



Of course those teams have to earn those two wins first, and for most of them, it won't be easy.
