Results of Big East going to shiiiii since this BCS deal was signed and OSU having a post season ban this year.

Also need to give honorable mention to Nebraska for getting shellacked the way they did.

Does have to do with the Big East... NIU only qualifies if they finish in the top 16 AND ahead of an AQ Conference Champion.. So Because...

A) The big East was garbage and Louisville finished below NIU they meet the standard.

B ) I also mentioned Ohio St. Because had they not been banned it would have been them (Undefeated top 5 team) playing Nebraska instead of garbage Wisconsin with the winner guaranteed to finish above NIU

Therefore this is made possible due to the OSU post season ban and the fact the Big East is Garbage.

Glad to see a program like NIU get a shot at BCS bowl. It wasn't that long ago that people talked about Boise State like they're now talking about NIU.

This game could get ugly

The ACC championship thought they had trouble selling out the FSU/GTech game?

Duke vs Cincinatti in the Belk Bowl Dec. 27 - yikes!

Honestly I could care less either way, but that statement is not true... NIU does not compare to Boise St at all!!

1) Boise St teams were undefeated with no bad losses... this NIU team loss to a bad Iowa team

2) Boise St. Was a top 10 team with really good talent... they were talked about since early in the season. NIU is not a top 10 team and really just snuck into the BCS picture

3) Boise St had at-least one quality win while dominating their other games... Boise St would go play a Georgia, Virgina Tech or some major school and beat them, then dominate their competition in conference... NIU has zero quality wins among AQ teams and did not overwhelmingly dominate their conference opponents.

I don't mind those being happy for NIU, as I say hats off to them, they did what they needed to get in within the system... But I will acknowledged they are no where on the level of a Boise St during their runs. Remember how 1 loss for Boise St would ruin all of their chances (The two years with missed field goals at the end of games). Those Boise teams had to be almost perfect to earn their spots.
