Congratulations to Connecticut for earning a BCS bowl bid. The Huskies did what was asked of them, and it wouldn’t be fair to say they don’t deserve it. However their BCS bowl eligibility is an example of what’s wrong with the BCS automatic qualifier rule.
Connecticut may finish the season unranked in the polls, but they will get the opportunity to play in a prestigious bowl game. It’s not the first time an undistinguished team will be making an appearance in a BCS bowl. Check out in chronological order the teams that I felt were the worst teams to ever receive a BCS bowl bid.
