    So since we have 13 games do we have to win 7 to be eligible, or are we eligible with 6 wins?

    Some one will correct me, but I think you have to be above .500, so we will need 7.

    I believe you are right, it has to be seven wins...

    13 post in 5 years? Impressive.

    Remember there are no dumb questions on AllBuffs just dumb posters.

    Yes. You must have at least a .500 record to qualify for bowl consideration. So in a 13 game season, you have to win a minimum of 7 games to qualify for a bowl.

    Goodness, normally you would think it would be an advantage to have an extra game to get to 7 wins but not with this schedule. Yikes

    Rep! And to be fair, it's a trick question. OU has no standards!

    One could assume so, but it is difficult to know for certain since OU hasn't had a losing season since 1997.

    I was waiting for that. I'm repped out, but you deserve some.
