A win really puts us in a much better spot to actually win the NC. Plus would be nice to have bragging right to claim the most BWT crowns. Currently it is 1 for LBSU, 1 for USCB, and 1 for Hawaii. We are already dominated the regular season with 3 regular season championships compared to Hawaii's 1.
With a win we would be #1 seed with Ball State as the #2 seed. Guessing we would play the winner of Pepperdine (assuming they don't blow their 2-0 lead over Stanford) and UCLA. I mean unless the NCAA wanted to put UCLA on the other side and have us play Penn State/Pepperdine winner instead. Not saying that is the "fair" thing to do BUT it would make the most sense tv wise as it would assure a very nice crowd if LBSU and UCLA make the finals.
With a loss we would have to beat a good team in the quarters to even make the semis. I mean we would probably have to play either Hawaii or UCLA/Penn State in the quarters. All three of those teams are more than capable off winning the NC so would 100% be a tough match.
