Remaining Undefeated, 1-Loss, and Winless Teams after Week 5
Teams with 1st loss Week 5:
Navy
California
Virginia
Kansas State
UAB

Teams with 2nd loss Week 5:
Virginia Tech
San Jose State
Nebraska
Texas Tech
Mississippi State
Southern California
Washington State
Indiana
Boston College
Iowa State
Coastal Carolina
Marshall
New Mexico
Troy
North Carolina State
Nevada

Teams with 1st win Week 5:
Vanderbilt
Massachusetts

Maximum number of Undefeated Teams at the End of the Regular Season:
7: All conference champs except the champs of the MAC, PAC-12, and Conference USA. This is down two from last week with the final unbeatens in the PAC-12 (Cal) and Conference USA (UAB) losing.

Teams with 1st loss:
Week 0 and 1: 35.38% (46 of 130)
Week 2: 38.01% (32 of 84)
Week 3: 32.69% (17 of 52)
Week 4: 34.29% (12 of 35)
Week 5: 21.74% (5 of 23)

Week 5 Thoughts:
-Let's start in the winless column as we lost 2 of our last 5 teams who had yet to win. Vanderbilt's win removes the final team from a power 5 conference. UMass won the battle of winless teams. There will be no more of those this season.

-Biggest news of the week was probably Clemson's close game vs. North Carolina. At the end of the day, a loss probably wouldn't have killed them given the the talent on the team, but given a softer top of the ACC this year (outside of Clemson of course), it's best for them not to have this be regular (won't matter if they win out, but if lose one and struggle and several others, the schedule might matter).

-With Cal's loss, the PAC-12 is the first power 5 conference to lose its last undefeated team. They need to hope for one of the 1-loss teams to go the distance and hope for a lot of help. Oregon is the best bet. Right now, the PAC-12 reminds me of the ACC of about a decade ago. It had a lot of strong, but no dominant/elite teams. This makes every week exciting, but is a bad combination for national title runs as teams tend to beat up on each other and knock each other out.

-In the race for the Group of 5 NY6 bowl spot, Conference USA's chances took a big hit with UAB's first loss. My view is Confernece USA and the MAC only really stand a chance now with a major upset late in the season by a 1-loss team over a highly ranked team (although I'm not right now looking into the schedules to see who would have the chance of that). Appalachian State of the Sun Belt held onto undefeated status this week. They would definitely need the 3 undefeateds from the American and Mountain West to lose and might need 2 loss champs from those conferences, but are still alive as long as they keep winning. Our biggest game of week in this race though last week was probably Memphis beating Navy (our only game between undefeated teams at all last week). Memphis and SMU are now the last 2 undefeated teams in the American.

Week 6 Thoughts:
We have 1 game between undefeated teams this week.

Undefeated Auburn @ Undefeated Florida: Florida despite being ranked #10 has not gotten the attention the other top SEC teams have. Win this and they will. They'll also be in a 2 team team race with Georgia for the SEC East. Auburn has a tougher road still, but that makes winning it even more imperative. It's likely the SEC West representative to Atlanta will have no more than 1 loss. Lose this and you probably have to win out the rest of the way and that includes games with Georgia, LSU, and Alabama.

1-loss UCF @ 1-loss Cincinnati (Friday): This is a big game in the American east. UCF is only a slight favorite here and if Cincinnati wins, they will probably get into the top 25 and be the favorite to win the east. Regardless the loser here would have a very uphill battle of getting into a NY6 bowl even if they recovered in conference.

Undefeated Iowa @ 1-loss Michigan: Very big and telling game between the 2 schools. If Iowa wins and stays unbeaten, it becomes a very clear 2 way race between them and Wisconsin for the Big Ten West. Michigan needs this game badly though. Their overall schedule is incredibly tough this year and this far in, fans are getting very restless with Jim Harbaugh. A loss here for Michigan with Penn State, Michigan State, Notre Dame, and Ohio State still to go is not a recipe for success.

Undefeated Baylor @ 1-loss Kansas State: The Bears are still undefeated. This will be an interesting road test.

1-loss Arizona @ 1-loss Colorado: Winner will sit atop the PAC-12 south for at least now.

1-loss Michigan State @ undefeated Ohio State: Buckeyes have looked very good so far. Michigan State has given them plenty of fits in past though.

-Akron is off, but our other 2 winless teams are playing. New Mexico State is the more likely one to win playing at home vs. Liberty as 5 point underdogs. Rice plays at 3-1 UAB as an 8.5 point underdog.

Remaining Undefeated Teams: ACC: 2, American Athletic: 2, Big 12: 2, Big Ten: 5, Conference USA: 0, Mountain West: 1, PAC-12: 0, SEC: 5, Sun Belt: 1, total: 18

Irrelevant who they follow, when doing a good service. I still hate the Suckeyes though.
