CBS Sports: AutoZone Liberty Bowl vs. SMU

As a reminder, just because you finish in a spot in conference does not mean that a bowl is required to pick you at that slot. The New Years Six bowl is required to take a Big 12 team if that team does not make the College Football Playoff otherwise, bowls are allowed to pick whoever they want. Location, fanbase and other factors are at play and ticket sales drive bowl selections.

Out of the current projections, a Liberty Bowl against Virginia Tech would drive the most excitement. If that is the case, just remember that West Virginia does not have to put the Black Diamond Trophy up for grabs.
