The BCS bowl argument is a strawman argument given that the only way Boise State (or for that matter any non-BCS school) gets a shot at playing in a BCS game is by running the table. The fact that WVU was able to play in the Orange Bowl with three losses doesn't make them better than a one loss Boise State team that got shafted and had to play in the Las Vegas bowl.
