    If somehow GSU went to Orlando what AAC team would GSU most likely play, What standings/rank would the AAC team be, within the AAC, that played in Orlando?

    People are just being honest.

    Many folks don't have the coin laying around to cover those logistics.

    A bowl is a good thing, but IDK how the sunbelt got that bowl tie in.

    AAC Tie In

    American Athletic Bowl Ties, Affiliations

    Highest-ranked champion from the AAC, C-USA, MAC, MW & Sun Belt will play in a New Year’s Six bowl.
    The American Athletic Conference doesn’t have a true pecking order. The bowl matchups are based on best possible games and geography.
    – Armed Forces Bowl vs. Big 12
    – Birmingham Bowl vs. SEC
    – Cheribundi Tart Cherry Bowl vs. Conference USA
    – Cure Bowl vs. Sun Belt
    – Frisco Bowl vs. At-Large
    – Gasparillia Bowl vs. Conference USA
    – Military Bowl vs. ACC
    The American Athletic has secondary partnerships with the AutoZone Liberty and Walk-On’s Independence, to fill if the main affiliations can’t fill their slots.


    Sun Belt Bowl Ties, Affiliations


    The Sun Belt doesn’t have a true pecking order after the champion goes to the New Orleans Bowl. The bowl matchups are based on best possible games and geography. New member, Coastal Carolina, will not be eligible for a bowl game.
    1. R&L Carriers New Orleans Bowl vs. Mountain West
    – Dollar General Bowl vs. MAC
    – Raycom Media Camellia Bowl vs. MAC
    – AutoNation Cure Bowl vs. American Athletic
    – NOVA Home Loans Arizona Bowl vs. Mountain West


    In the 2018 Cure Bowl it was Tulane @ 6-6 vs the Ragin Cajuns @ 7-6. Total Attendance 19,066

    Current AAC standings.

    And that's fine if they can't attend.

    Don't badmouth bowl committees though.

    That's dumb.

    Unless you think not playing in a bowl at all is better than playing in the Arizona bowl, then I have absolutely no idea why you would tweet at a bowl game and tell them ďhey I hope my team doesnít have to play in your bowl. No one wants to travel to Tucson.Ē Really bad look. Imagine if our team got passed over for a bowl this year because our fans were telling that bowl we didnít want to go there.

    I agree.

    That would be dumb.

    I haven't seen any of the tweets, perhaps they were over the top.

    (People are getting big heads for sure. We are bowl eligible, but there are no guarantees. We did have a good game, which was immediately preceded by an incredibly poor game. Six wins could be all we get, and we definitely could get shut out. These next two games are toss ups.)

    I'm not sure the marketing/PR running the bowl social media account has any input into who gets invited. Does the bowl committee see them? Yes.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    I would MUCH rather see us reignite a true old school rivalry between proximate real foes vs whatever this garbage is between us and Ga State.
