You don’t need to win six games to go to a bowl game after the 2020 college football regular season concludes. In fact, you don’t have to win any games to go bowling in 2020.
The NCAA voted Wednesday evening to eliminate all win requirements for postseason play. It’s now up to the organizers of the 39 different games to select the 78 participants.
The SEC has ties to 11 different games. Since SEC schools draw the most eyeballs, the slots will certainly be filled if the schools is willing to accept the game check (which is not really a big if). A year unlike any other, good luck to the fine folks who fill out bowl projections each year.
This news was expected. The next great expectation for football fans in the Bluegrass: A Governor’s Cup matchup between Kentucky and Louisville in the postseason.
