Good to hear - it's a shame that smaller conferences and school lose money on bowl appearances many times.

If it ended today BYU would be on the outside looking in of the playoff (which basically would need 3 or less 0-1 loss teams) although they'd be a near lock for an access bowl, its still going to be a bitter consolation prize.

Playoff - FSU, Bama, OU, Oregon
AQs - ND, Mich St, East Carolina
At Large Selection - SEC #2 (A&M), B12 #2 (Baylor), P12 #2 (UCLA), SEC #3 (UGA)
Last spot would be between - An undefeated BYU and the remaining field ACC/B1G #2, P12/B12 #3, SEC #4....BYU should be the pick.

But in making the non-playoff bowl matchups I'd see them doing something like this...
Orange - ND v Mich St
Cotton - Baylor v A&M
Peach - UGA v UCLA
Fiesta - BYU v ECU

or this...
Orange - ND v UGA
Cotton - Baylor v A&M
Peach - BYU v ECU
Fiesta - Mich St v UCLA

But either way BYU gets a chance to play with the big boys and simply gets pawned off on the Go5 champ very similar to the Boise/TCU Fiesta bowl in 2010. They get a game, they get the money, but they don't get the recognition nor attention they deserve. If BYU was a Go5 fb member they'd likely have been the only representative and would be guaranteed a better bowl against 2nd-4th place P5 member and be considered this Cinderella team of 2014.

This won't be corrected. If BYU ever has another good season they'll simply be placed in a bowl against the Go5 champ. The only solution is for BYU to join a P5 conference (unlikely), the AAC as a fb only member, or the MWC as a full member; that way they'll be the only non-P5 selection and get a good game against a P5 opponent.
