B4: 2012 Hyundai Sun Bowl – USC vs. Georgia Tech

Last year, USC’s ineligibility ushered UCLA into the Pac-12 title game, and after a loss and a 6-7 record, the Bruins ultimately were granted a waiver to play in a bowl with a losing record. It was perhaps that precedent that paved the way for their Sun Bowl opponent: Georgia Tech, who I saw a few weeks ago at the ACC Championship Game, wouldn’t have made it there if UNC weren’t ineligible and Miami hadn’t self-imposed a postseason ban.
