I think it's 6 or 8. Just like with basketball, though, there's always that team juuuust outside the selection crying about getting snubbed. In reality, noone cares because #67 (or whatever they're up to now) isn't going to win the title game but they still cry about being snubbed if they don't make the cut. It seems like letting a Cinderella squad get destroyed would be a good way to keep everyone in line when that selection happens.
Conversely, if they screw up and NIU wins, this is the kind of game that can turn the BCS system on its head.
