Georgia Tech Bowl Championship Series

The NCAA College Football regular season is officially in the stretch drive and there are a number of teams fighting not just for a spot in a Bowl Championship Series Bowl game, but in any bowl game.

Among those teams struggling for postseason life are the Texas Longhorns, who weren’t just in a BCS bowl game last season, they were in the BCS Championship Game, losing 37-21 to the Alabama Crimson Tide.

 Texas (4-6 SU, 2-8 ATS) definitely will not be defending its Big 12 conference title and will be hard-pressed to get into the bowl season, as NCAA rules prohibit any team with a sub-.500 record from playing in a bowl game.

The Longhorns need a win over the Florida Atlantic Owls on Saturday, and will have to then turn around and beat the No. 18 Texas A&M Aggies the following week.

Texas is a 21-point favorite in NCAAF Lines at betED.com.

Texas hasn’t missed playing a bowl game since the 1997 season.

 Another 2009 conference champion in danger of not playing in late December or early January are the defending ACC champion Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Georgia Tech is in a slightly better position to qualify for a bowl game at 5-5 SU (3-4 ATS).

The Yellow Jackets host the Duke Blue Devils on Saturday, with Georgia Tech a 12-point favorite in NCAA Football Odds. Other teams on the bowl bubble are the Georgia Bulldogs, Oregon State Beavers, and Pittsburgh Panthers.
