There are currently, according to the NCAA, (National Collegiate Athletic Association) 128 Division I (or top-tier) college football teams in America. There are also 40 bowl games being televised this year. In what has to be an indictment on rewarding mediocrity, you only have to be 6-6 record-wise to be bowl-eligible. 80 of the 128 will be going to some bowl this season.
But this year, the NCAA has had to tweak that rule, because there's only 75 teams with at least 6-6 marks. Five more are needed. So what are they doing about it?
