This season, 73 out of 119 Division I Football Bowl Subdivision teams met the bare minimum requirements for bowl consideration: obtaining at least a .500 record and defeating six FBS opponents (or five FBS opponents and one Division I Football Championship Subdivision pansy). However, "only" 64 bowl spots were available, with merely two at-large berths possible (Motor City and Poinsettia), which meant that any 6-6 teams were in danger of being left out. Here are the nine who will be staying home:



Pittsburgh
Kansas
Southern Methodist
Kent State
Wyoming
Arizona
Washington State
Arkansas State
Louisiana-Lafayette
