All the G5 grouped together. Hard to say anyone of them has an advantage right now.

RE: College Football Playoff Rankings - 5 November 2019
The remain schedules for the five teams from the AAC and MWC are as follows...

Cincinnati - UConn, @USF, Temple, @#19 Memphis
Memphis - @Houston, @USF, #17 Cincinnati
Boise State - Wyoming, New Mexico, @Utah State, @Colorado State
Navy - @#15 Notre Dame, #23 SMU, @Houston, ARMY
SMU - East Carolina, @#25 Navy, Tulane

The AAC final stretch is absolutely 'made-for-TV'. You are staring down the barrel at a potential Top 15 matchup between Memphis and Cincinnati in the regular season, potentially repeating itself. If those teams win out prior to that game, it is basically theirs.

Navy will make an interesting case. Memphis cannot lose another game, and a win over a ranked SMU team would catapult Navy. They can afford to lose to Notre Dame.

Boise State cannot lose another game, unless the others drop the ball as well. But there is enough strength in the last few games to solidly wedge an AAC team into the NY6 spot.

RE: College Football Playoff Rankings - 5 November 2019
Putting Clemson at five was the safest move the committee could make because two of those teams ahead of them WILL lose so it doesn't matter at this point. Clemson will most likely go undefeated and play a scrappy Virginia team in the ACC title. They'll win and make the playoffs.

The rest of the pack isn't so simple. Georgia with one loss is still in the hunt. Alabama has LSU and Auburn. LSU has Bama and TAMU. Plus whoever ends up winning the West has Georgia to deal with in ATL.

Penn State plays Minnesota and Ohio State. Ohio State has Penn State and Michigan.

Don't count out Baylor, Oklahoma, Utah, and Oregon.

The stretch will be chaotic and fun to watch this year. This "eye test" crap is annoying. If these morons would put the actual sport before money they'd shorten the regular season by a game (play an exhibition game in August) and have a 12 team playoff with every FBS conference represented.

Those 4 schools will finish with a combined (at least) 4 more losses: Cincinnati vs Memphis, Navy vs SMU, Navy vs Notre Dame, AAC CCG. Plus other tough conference games. It’s a great conference.
- I do hope I’m wrong about Navy losing to Notre Dame.

That's big. Although I suspect they just rated Navy to help Notre Dame. Navy hasn't done anything yet this season. They may. But they haven't yet. They had ECU, USF and UConn from the east and haven't played SMU or Houston yet. They lost to Memphis. Their big wins are Air Force and Tulane, both close games. Other wins are Tulsa and Holy Cross.

Navy and Oklahoma St. were the surprises. As well as how low they rated Minnesota and how high they rated Kansas St.
Oklahoma St. is 6th in the Big 12 behind Baylor 5-0, OU 4-1 and Texas, Kansas St. and Iowa St. at 3-2. Oklahoma St. is 3-3 with losses to Texas, Baylor and Texas Tech.

If you drill down from ESPN FPI, you can find each team's "Strength of Record" - FPI is intended to be a predictor, but ESPN's stats team tried to build a metric to match the CFP committee words about strength of record.
Navy is #26
ESPN also built a stat for Game Control when the committee kept saying that a year or two ago. Navy is #15.
Massey Composite rankings has Navy #23.

The problem for any other G5 school in this race is that the team that comes out of that will still likely have a significantly better resume than anyone else.

It’s going to take the bottom (read: bad) part of the AAC beating the top in order to open up a lane for somebody else. Beating each other just strengthens the resume of the ultimate victor.

I agree - I hope my post didn’t seem to say otherwise. The AAC has had a great season with 5-7 solid teams (and none are Houston or South Florida). That says a lot about this conference. I hope the success continues into the basketball season.

All the being said, I would like to see bowl games in general be matched up by some sort of ranking system instead of conference tie-ins with some rules like no rematches, etc.

At this point it looks like it is the AAC’s to lose. However, there is a lot yet to be played and anything can happen.

I don’t see how the Suckeyes got 1, hopefully that will correct itself.

Because they have been the most impressive team by far. They have killed everyone they have played so far

Shades of 2015 when Houston, Memphis, Navy and Temple all spent time in the playoff poll.
