Some other facts re; the 2020 Bowl Season:
Sully’s College Football Page Game Simulator went 14-8-3 in the Bowl Season, this is straight up, not against the spread.
The site struggles when Group of 5 (G5) teams play Power 5 (P5) teams. The simulator works off only numbers and has no data on conference strength, recruitment, or other disparities. As a result, it predicted Army would beat WV (they lost 24-21), that Cincy would beat Georgia (UGA won 24-21) & that Tulsa would take down Mississippi State, the Golden Hurricanes lost, 28-26!
While these games were all close, the G5’s did not win a game vs P5 (the 3 games mentioned above & BYU beat Central Florida (UCF) in the 2020 Bowl Season! On SCFP, we count ND (Independent on a normal year) & BYU as part of the Power 5.
These two addition gives the Power 5 Conferences, 66 of the 130 teams (B-10, SEC, ACC have 14 team each / for a total of 42, the PAC-12 has 12 teams & the B-12 has 10, 22 together and 64 when added to the ACC’s, SEC’s, & B-10’s 42, and finally, to 66 with ND & BYU) in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS).
The G5 is also part of the FBS (an NCAA designation for 130 teams that must award 85 scholarships) that said, the P5 & G5 are constructs and are not part of the NCAA structure or language.
The Group of 5 has 64 teams (C-USA 14, MAC 12, AAC 11, MWC 12, SBC 10, & 5 IND (U-Conn, U-Mass, Liberty, New Mexico State, & Army!
The NCAA does have a Division 1 Football Championship, yet, Alabama & Ohio State are not playing for it, that tourney is played in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). The CFP is not a sponsored NCAA Championship, but rather a creation of the Power 5 Conferences!
Given that, it should come as no surprise that the Group of 5 is not in, or getting in the CFP anytime soon! Either the NCAA has to create a tourney that all 130 teams have a path to enter or someone has to challenge the lack of access among public institutions!
Finally. I would hate to see the loss of the Bowl Games, yet I fear they are going the way of the College Football All-Star Game! The last College All Star game was played on July 23, 1976 and sad to say it, looks like the Bowls are going to fade into history as well!
