    • I’d agree with that. Though I bet both Techs would prefer to go to a better bowl.

      Clemson, too, will likely want an invite to a BCS game. Whether they can pull that down depends on outside factors, too, but given the relative weakness of non-AQs, the B1G and Big East, I don’t think it’s all that farfetched to think we’ll see a second bid if Clemson finishes with one loss. This is also dependent on Notre Dame, however. The final at-large spot may end up coming down to ND and Clemson, and we all know who takes that (not the Tigers).
