Due to the pandemic, all 12 teams would have been eligible to accept a bowl invite. But it seems that many programs outside of NY6 consideration will opt to start their offseason instead.

Oregon won the Pac-12, so the Ducks will play in the Fiesta Bowl. The Buffs are coming off one of their best seasons in recent memory, so it makes sense they’d want to enjoy a bowl game.

More than a dozen Power 5 teams have already publicly opted out of bowl season. Boston College coach Jeff Hafley justified the decision earlier this month by saying it’s the best reward schools can give their players for a long, difficult season away from their families.

The College Football Playoff and NY6 bowls will be announced on Sunday.
