San Jose State in good position for a bowl berth

Bob Stanton-US PRESSWIRE

San Jose State's postseason fate is still unknown, but the Spartans are in good position to make a bowl game.

After wrapping up the regular season with a win against Louisiana Tech, the 10-2 San Jose Spartans are in good position to play in a bowl game for the first time since 2006.

With 10 wins, the Spartans are easily bowl eligible, but without a conference tie-in the Spartans are not guaranteed a bowl bid. Currently there are 70 bowl-eligible teams for the 35 games. As long as that number doesn't climb above 71, the Spartans are guaranteed to play in the postseason. Pittsburgh and Connecticut could both become bowl eligible this weekend and if they do, the Spartans could be left without a bid.

San Jose State athletic director Gene Bleymaier said it would be "ludicrous" and a "travesty" if the Spartans were passed over this season. Bleymaier has had discussions with representatives from six bowl games already including the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl, Little Caesars Pizza Bowl, Military Bowl, Independence Bowl, Music City Bowl and GoDaddy.com Bowl.

The fact the Spartans checked in at No. 25 in the latest BCS rankings should also help San Jose State's cause. The bowl selections will be announced Sunday on ESPN at 6:30 p.m. PT.
