How many teams actually in the major conference beat the major conference champ?
Do your own research.
Point is, a sun belt team beating a team in a major conference doesn't mean they should get an autobid to a 16 team playoff.
The occasional "upset" over a crappy bcs conference team (in the year the game was played) doesn't legitimize the conferences participation in any future playoff system.
Conference Champ, year, win over BCS conference team
Arky State 2012 - none
Arky State 2011 - none
Troy 2010 - none
Troy 2009 - none
Troy 2008 - none
Troy 2007 - Oklahoma State (7-6)
Troy 2006 - none
ULL/ULM/Arky State 2005 - none
North Texas 2004 - none
North Texas 2003 - Baylor (3-9)
In the past 10 years, there are only two wins over BCS conference competition by the Sun Belt conference champ. It's the worst FBS conference.
