Playing in bowl games matters. Don't ever believe that it doesn't. Winning bowl games matters even more because you're matched up with OOC competition. We all use these matchups as a barometer of a conference's strength that year. It amazes me how nearly all AAC fans discount every accomplishment of a CUSA or SBC team as meaningless, but if one of their teams gets a win in a "Fruitcake Bowl", it's headline worthy news.

If I remember right the AAC hasn't competed very well in bowls...at least last year. If you can't win them put 'em down.

RE: ESPN Bowl Challenge Cup standings
I did the calculations for the Sun Belt to win the Bowl Challenge Cup (championship game scenarios included).

Already eliminated:
*CUSA
*MAC

Eliminated with a New Mexico State win:
*ACC #
*Pac-12
*Big 12
*American
*MW

# if both Virginia and Virginia Tech lose today (Dec 28)

A New Mexico State win will eliminate with:
*ACC - 3 losses (Clemson results do not change total losses needed)
*SEC - 2 losses (if both Alabama and Georgia lose semifinal game)
*SEC - 3 losses (if either or both Alabama and Georgia advance to championship game)
*Big Ten - 2 losses

Sun Belt is eliminated with a New Mexico State loss.
