In the last two years, 27 teams who held 6-6 records went to bowl games which is about 20% of the field, McMurphy reported.  The potential seven win system, starting in the 2014 season, could decrease the number to 5-12 fewer bowl games played.

Under the current bowl eligibility system, for a team becoming bowl eligible they must have a winning record or have won their conference.
