Chris, your schedule guy can say that, but the NCAA bylaws clearly state requirements for a game to count for bowl eligibility and Wagner does not meet them. (not enough scholarships)

Like the season-ending matchups!! Hopefully when Louisville comes in to replace Maryland, there will be some shuffling done, so that Louisville doesn’t end with NC State. NC State should end with Wake Forest, Wake Forest’s current season-ending partner Vanderbilt should end with Tennessee, and Tennessee’s current season-ending partner Kentucky should end with Louisville (bringing it full circle).

That’s actually a great idea. I think Tennessee likes ending with Kentucky, though. They would have to move their game with the ‘Cats.

got confirmation that the syracuse wagner game counts towards bowl eligibility.

[quote]A Wagner official on Thursday backed up Syracuse’s assertion that SU’s home opener against the Seahawks would count toward bowl eligibility.[/quote]

[quote]Wagner, which competes in the Northeast Conference of the Football Championship Subdivision, is allowed to offer 40 scholarships. In order for a victory against an FCS opponent to count toward bowl eligibility, the NCAA requires the FCS team to supply aid at at least 90 percent of the 63 scholarship limit allowed over a rolling two-year period.

In other words, the school must supply aid to at least 57 players.

Jim Gibbons, Wagner’s assistant athletic director for academics and compliance, confirmed his school is able to grant any aid — but not federal aid— to a football player and have it count toward the 57 requirement.

Gibbons said Wagner currently sits at 61 scholarships.[/quote]
