Army accepted an invite to the Independence Bowl, which has ties to the PAC-12. All of the PAC-12 teams declining bowl invites left Army out in the cold after the Independence Bowl had to cancel.
I will say that ESPN management of bowls lead to invites going to terrible teams:
Mississippi State - Armed Forces Bowl
South Carolina - Gasparilla Bowl
Arkansas - Texas Bowl
Note that Tennessee, Kentucky, and Ole Miss are also SEC teams with losing records that accepted bowl invites to non-ESPN managed bowls. All other P5 teams that are bowling have a .500 record or better. Only the SEC is rewarding terrible teams.
