This is just like 1996 when the cougs were 13-1 ranked #5 headed into the selection for the Bowl Alliance. Back then there was no "legal" entry for G5 schools and the selection committee passed over BYU. BYU did get an invite to play Kansas State in the Cotton Bowl and won the game.

Back in 96' the P5 conferences didn't want to share any money with BYU or any other G5 program and 24 years later its no difference. In fact it might be worse this year. No P5 OR G5 conference is going to help BYU by scheduling to play them this year. Not if it helps boost BYU's strength of schedule. Why would they. BYU has no conference there for the 6.5 million dollars BYU would get for the game would go 100% to BYU. If your a P5 conference that's money your conference has ZERO chance of getting. If your a G5 conference you have Cincinnati in already why risk them getting leapfrog by BYU. Even the Mountain West would rather see the AAC get the money over BYU.

The worst part is there is no "good" bowl game for BYU to potentially fall back on this year like there was in 96'. I seen one bowl projection that had BYU either going to a NY6 bowl or the Famous Potato Bowl in Boise. Get a good grasp of that. 10-0 ranked in the top 10 going to Boise. And does anyone want to bet money Zach Wilson ops out of that bowl game to start preparing for the NFL draft. Along with half the O-line. 2020 what else can be said.

This is an article about BYU getting snubbed back in 96'

How in the world can you win a game and drop 6 places in the rankings. Has that ever happened?
Somebody is dishonest and prejudiced.

I think there needs to be a cry for an independent committee without self interest.

Or perhaps at least without a Wyoming AD who has an apparent dislike of BYU?
