I forgot to answer your question. There was a contractual agreement between BYU and the bowl organizers that was made before the season a year or two ago. If BYU is bowl-eligible and not invited to a BCS bowl (hardy har), then they go to the Kraft bowl. I wasn't thrilled with it because I did think BYU might be able to do better, but I understand their reasoning. They aren't in a conference anymore so they don't have any bowl partners, so they wanted to create some security for themselves. Life as a football independent is interesting.
