As the above links note*, Kent St. will go to a BCS bowl if it finishes in the top 16 of the BCS standings and finishes ahead of the champion of an AQ conference. As of today, the Golden Flashes are 17th in the BCS rankings (see below) and ranked ahead of every Big East team. They have the chance to up their rankings when they play No. 21 (in the BCS) NIU tomorrow.
Arguments for Kent St. include the fact that they are 11-1 and that they beat the glorious football power that is Rutgers (yes, our Rutgers). An argument against is that they lost 47-14 to Kentucky and that their best win was against the glorious football power that is Rutgers. The fact that they are named The Golden Flashes is an argument both for and against, I think.
What sayeth you about this? To me, being in the top 16 and ranked ahead of an AQ champion is not much of a hurdle. Of course, being the champion of the Big East isn't much of a hurdle either. I wish the FBS had just scrapped all of the conference-related rules for the years left before the switch to the playoff.
*Thanks to vnperk for pointing out that the first link only implies what I said above about the BCS rules. The second link confirms it.
