A Colorado vs. James Madison Bowl Game Would Solve Problems

James Madison is unlikely to compete in a bowl game this season due to an NCAA rule prohibiting second year FBS schools from bowl eligibility despite being undefeated and ranked 18th in the AP Poll. Colorado only has four wins this season, short of the 6 wins required for bowl eligibility, yet they’ve been the most compelling team in the country this season with Deion Sanders at the helm. It’s time for the NCAA to get out of its own way and make this game happen.

Dan Patrick: “How about Colorado and James Madison face each other in a bowl game? Because Colorado, they only have four wins, maybe somebody is going to take those two and say: here’s a great story! Undefeated team here and you have Colorado with Deion (Sanders). Maybe that could solve the problems here...They would be one of the bigger draws.”
