Florida Selected for BCS Bowl in Front of Kansas State BCS First Season
The “Kansas State Rule” was implemented after the 1998-99 season when fourth ranked Ohio State and eight ranked Florida were selected to play in BCS bowl games over third ranked Kansas State.
The Kansas State Rule now ensures that the third ranked BCS team is ensured an invitation to a BCS bowl game. It has been used only five times since its inception. The last time was for Texas in the 2008-09 season.
