I guess Sports Illustrated truly is struggling because I'm 99.9% sure Missouri has a postseason ban this year. Not sure how that matchup is possible unless something changed since the ban was announced in January

They are currently appealing the ban and are eligible till that case is decided

Very little respect given to our Gophers. Let's keep it that way, I like being the underdog. How many games will we have to win to be mentioned in the best bowl games in the land?

Anybody that aint on the bandwagon needs to hop on before the Nebraska game. Im afraid there won't be much room available after this weekend.

Pretty Sure You are Wrong
Pinstripe Bowl is in the same prestige neighborhood as the quick lane bowl, no? So the Gophers got into a bowl by winning their very last game last season to go 6-6. Now, with a 5-0 start they are projected to be in pretty much the same level bowl a year later? Basically that is a left handed prediction of a major collapse ahead for the Gophers this season.

Last season non-NY6 Bowls (Big Ten, overall records, *not* including the bowl result):

Quick Lane - Minnesota (3-6, 6-6)
Pinstripe - Wisconsin (5-4, 7-5)
Music City - Purdue (5-4, 6-6)
Redbox - Mich St (5-4, 7-5)
Holiday - NW (8-1, 8-5)
Outback - Iowa (5-4, 8-4)
Citrus - Penn St (6-3, 9-3)


I know there are some nuanced rules about which team goes where. For example, I believe there is a rule about a team not returning to the same bowl the next year and having a minimum number of unique teams in a five-year period, something like that.

Big Ten Bowl Ties, Affiliations
A Big Ten team will be in the Rose Bowl – it’ll be the champion if not in the College Football Playoff.

College Football Playoff Semifinal: If Selected

1. Rose Bowl vs. Pac-12

2. Citrus Bowl vs. ACC or SEC
– Agreement for Citrus is for five different teams in six years, so no Penn State, Minnesota or Michigan, if possible.

3. Outback Bowl vs. SEC
– Agreement is for five different teams in six years, so no Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan or Northwestern, if possible.

4. San Diego Country Credit Union Holiday Bowl vs. Pac-12
– Agreement is for five different teams in six years, so no Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Northwestern or Wisconsin, if possible.

5. TaxSlayer Bowl vs. SEC OR Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl vs. SEC
– ACC and Big Ten combine in the Music City and TaxSlayer, with each getting three appearances in six years. The Big Ten played in TaxSlayer in 2015 and the Music City in 2016, 2017 & 2018. It’s almost certainly going to be in the TaxSlayer, but no Iowa or Penn State, if possible.

New Era Pinstripe Bowl vs. ACC
– It’s not official, but the bowl would prefer to have eight different teams in eight years, so no Indiana, Iowa, Northwestern, Penn State or Wisconsin, if possible.

Redbox Bowl vs. Pac-12
– Agreement is for five different teams in six years, so no Indiana, Maryland, Michigan State, Nebraska or Purdue, if possible.

Quick Lane Bowl vs. ACC

Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl vs. Mountain West
– Agreement for three SERVPRO First Responders and three Armed Forces bowls in six years. The Big Ten hasn’t been in the Armed Force Bowl since 2014. The Big 12 is contracted to play in the SERVPRO First Responders in 2019.

^^^ awesome thank you!

“Reasonable” best case scenario: Ohio St CFP, Minnesota Rose Bowl

But I think more likely, the Outback, would be a really nice end to a great year 3!

If an undefeated MN beats an undefeated OSU in Indy, what happens then?
