Texas Tech will Likely *Not* Go to Fiesta Bowl

For those who have been following this debate, I sent an email to the BCS this morning.  Yes, I really did.  You can, too.  There is a link on the website.  I posed the following question:

In regards to which teams from the Big XII conference that will go to a BCS bowl, could you please clarify the selection procedure for the following: Should Oklahoma win the Big XII championship and become an automatic qualifier as the champion, and presumably will play in the BCS championship game, will any other team from the Big XII automatically qualify for a BCS bowl game (also assuming no further changes in standings)?

  Here is the response FROM THE BCS:

There is only one automatic qualifyer from the BCS conferences - the champion - but another team can go to a BCS bowl as an automatic, if they finish No. 3 in the final rankings and if no at-large team from that conference is No. 1 or 2, or as an at-large team.  Texas would certainly fit into that category this year, probably as No. 3 but certainly as an at-large.
 
Best wishes,
 
BCS
