RE: If we beat BC and Nebraska are we in?
If BC and Nebraska had their better teams I think that would be the case, but with the current state of those teams (BC around 70-90 and Nebraska 25-40), it would be hard for NIU to get into the top 25 beating just those two teams. Also the current climate we are in, you have about half the coaches and half the media who just won't cast votes for any G5 member, making it more difficult for a G5 to make the top 25 as compared to 5 years ago. Realistically I think in this day's climate, NIU would probably have to wait to get into the top 25 by beating Toledo on the road and going 9-0.

NIU opened as 2 pt favorites vs BC, BC now 2.5 to 3 favorites. Hopefully its a good game.

Throw in a SD State victory and we are definitely Top 25 if not after Nebraska win. Man, I hope we have this problem. Go Huskies, I am so fired up for the season to start. Starting this year I have two kids at NIU, I want for success during there NIU stay.

I think you are really overestimating the potential jump. NIU doesn't even have a vote yet and I don't think beating bc and eiu will even get NIU any votes. It would take beating Nebraska to even get any top 25 votes. It's would be a tough haul to get votes

NIU needs to win 11 straight to crack the top 25. To crack the top 12 and get a big bowl invite NIU would need an additional two wins from a second college play-off for mid majors.

Stop yourself lol. I like wild scenarios as much as anyone, but this is beyond even the imagination territory.

But they didn't so it's irrelevant.

Wow. Patting yourself on the back for asking a simple question for a scenario that didn't occur.

I'm gonna get way ahead of myself because it has zero bearing on what happens on the field anyways:

If we run the table, are we in the convo for an Access bowl?
