In that case, USF or UCF will get the nod, because their overall SOS will clearly be stronger than SDSU.

SDSU needs Stanford to be a ranked team at the end of the season so that they count as a signature P5 win. With 4-5 losses, they won't be that.

And no, there's zero chance that SDSU will somehow get in as a "wild card" as well. Even with five theoretical 'at large' bids, an unbeaten G5 that doesn't get the auto-NY6 will not beat out 9-2 P5 teams for those NY6 slots.

Never say never, last year only had eight 1 or 2 loss P5 teams going into bowl season. 2014 had only 8 as well. Last year simply didn't have enough G5 candidates that had good resumes. So maybe we would see more than one in there.

Also, do you think the best from MWC approach AAC for a re-do if it becomes obvious that the committee favors the AAC? It's one thing to think it can happen, its another to actually see it happen in broad daylight for all to see.

I don't see the likes of Boise or SDSU or anyone else approaching the AAC, at least not based on CFP outcomes. If SDSU and UCF both go unbeaten, obviously only one of them can get the NY6 slot so the CFP has to choose somebody. We might as well speculate that if the CFP chooses SDSU, that UCF would seek MWC membership.

Doesn't make sense to me, especially since so far, the CFP hasn't shown any pro-AAC bias at all, we've only gotten the NY6 bid one time in three years, even though we've been the best G5 conference for two of those years, and the expectation when it was created was that we would get it almost every year.

If Boise or SDSU ever seek AAC membership, it would be over $$$, like if we somehow got a $10m per school media deal in 2020. Dollars are the thing that caused both to join the Big East, then leave the AAC, the first time.

Navy and SDSU finish undefeated, it will wait a week until after the Army/Navy game. It does appear Stanford/ND could have huge implication on the G5 champ. Here's a question, let's say LSU rebounds and finishes 9-3. Then how do you keep Troy out? They could end up with the biggest win and be SB G5 Champ. You can't limit these arguements to just one team. CFP could say, going on the road to Boise was not a bad loss. I do think all of us on the board will give it more thought than the CFP will, since their primary job is the top 4. No one will argue what G5 champ is more deserving except than the fans of the Conference that gets in and the one left out. The vast majority of FBS fans really could care less about that controversy or team. Many P5 fans see it as a necessary welfare slot for a team that would not likely get in if it was based on the CFP poll. A payoff learned from the mistakes of the BCS.

Well, this is 15 minutes from no longer being a possibility.

RE: Pretty big weekend in the NY6 chase
Troy fans I feel for you. Trust me, as a Wolfpack fan, I have seen this too many times. One reason why I am cynically optimistic about our season. It is not the ND & Clemson games I dread. The BC, Wake and Pitt games are the ones that terrify me. I have been to this rodeo to many times with the Pack. 04-cheers
