The automatic bid for the minor-conference team is the only one that's not beholden to the committee's rankings. Every other bid will come straight out of those rankings, with matchups determined by geography/competitiveness.

ETA: The minor-conference bid is also beholden to the committee rankings, but I meant that there is no ranking requirement - doesn't matter where the highest-ranked minor-conference team is in the rankings, they get a bid.
