Auburn, ten more college football teams become eligible for the 2018 postseason.

Bowl Eligibility Watch

Week 9 of the 2018 college football season is over. For some teams, the hopes for a postseason bowl game are also over. (Hi there, UCLA!) But hope is still alive for a few three-win teams, and even for a couple of two-wins via scheduling quirks.



On the brighter side of things, eleven teams, including Duke, Michigan State, and Auburn, became bowl eligible on Saturday, earning them a postseason bowl spot.
