In an unusual year for college football, and sports in general, it seems only fair that the college football postseason would be altered as well.
The NCAA Division I Council waived all win requirements for bowl eligibility on Wednesday, meaning teams with losing records will be eligible for bowl games.
The ruling allows all 127 teams currently participating in the Bowl Subdivision to be eligible for the postseason.
Normally teams have to reach six wins, but with abbreviated schedules, it seemed unlikely enough teams would reach that mark.
This is, of course, good news for Kentucky. By most standards, Kentucky could go 5-5 this season with an all-SEC schedule and the season could be considered a success.
We’re still not totally sure what the bowl season will look like, but this opens things up for some compelling postseason matchups.
