Yes, while it's theoretically possible, it won't happen, but actually for a good reason, not anti-G5 bias: The AAC has zero accomplishments versus the P5 this season. Not a single win vs P5 worth mentioning. The best P5 win that either UCF or USF have is UCF's win over Maryland, and Maryland is a 3-4 team, in 6th place in one of the B1G divisions, unlikely to even be bowl-eligible this year.

So the loser of their game won't have any accomplishments vs the P5 worth pointing to, and getting an NY6 at-large slot is about beating out P5 teams.

Quo, what is your hangup about UCLA? They are currently ranked 45th by Athlon, and Maryland is 61st.

In the CBS ranking, UCLA is 45th and Maryland is 80th.

Not only that, but UCLA was ranked 25th when Memphis played them, and Rosen was the hottest QB in CFB.

RE: NY6 bowl...AAC's to lose?
Boise State is still in the running for a NY6 bowl. They could win out the rest of the way. UCF, USF, Navy and Memphis still could stumbled to lose 2 games. Toledo is not even ahead of Boise State in the rankings for their lone loss.

UCF
USF
Memphis
Boise State
Navy
San Diego State
Toledo

That is how they shape up. The top AAC schools still have to face each other.

You didn't read carefully. Neither UCF or USF played UCLA, which is why i mentioned Maryland not UCLA.

FWIW, UCLA is a better win for Memphis than Maryland is for UCF, but it is still not a very good win. UCLA is 4-3, and would be 3-4 if not for a Patriots type miracle choke by Texas AM.

But more often then not, those games between middling to Top 30 P5 schools will be the barometer used for determining the access bowl slots. Would the top P5 schools play the G5s that have an outside shot of cracking the playoff? Houston might have been able to do it last year, but Penn State winning the Big 10 would have knocked them out I believe. It'll be a long time before an OOC game like Houston - Louisville will come around again.

RE: NY6 bowl...AAC's to lose?
I think it's extremely unlikely for it not to be an AAC team at this point. UCF and USF only have 3-4 games to lose to someone else. And UCF is coming up on the worst part of its schedule.

No question. And it is still possible that the AAC could have a big P5 win, if Notre Dame is high ranked when Navy plays them.

I read carefully. In fact, I had to go back and edit it, after it dawned on me that you were only talking UCF/USF.

But I couldn't resist busting your chops a bit for UCLA, since you have been on that jag about SDSU and Stanford until SDSU finally lost 2 in a row, lol.

That is how they shape up. The top AAC schools still have to face each other.

And if any G5 school outside of the AAC runs the table, they wont beat a single top 25 team between now and then. On the other hand, whoever wins the AAC will have to beat one or more top 25 teams between today and the end of the season in order to win the AAC championship. Game over.

Lets say Boise State did beat Washington State earlier this year? they would have the better win over everybody. Of all the top 25 teams the teams played? Boise State tops everybody else in that department. UCLA and Maryland both sucked.

Other schools also mentioned outside the ones I talked about are Fresno State and Colorado State. So, Fresno State, Colorado State and Boise State still in the hunt to win the conference.
Memphis, UCF, USF and Navy are still in play.It will be a cluster fluck if all the G5 schools have 2 loses while Toledo with one lose, but of all the luck, they will chose Boise State over the other schools because of their better W/L record in the NY6 bowls.
