Bowl Eligibility List 10/18/16 (Alphabetical)

Want to know which college football teams have gotten to six wins?  Well, here is a running alphabetical list of the FBS schools to get to that win total.  We will update periodically.  Anyway, here is the current list:

  • Alabama (SEC) 
  • Baylor (Big XII) 
  • Boise State (MWC)
  • Clemson (ACC)
  • Houston (AAC)
  • Michigan (Big 10)
  • Nebraska (Big 10)
  • Ohio State (Big 10)
  • South Florida (AAC)
  • Texas A&M (SEC)
  • Utah (Pac 12)
  • Washington (Pac 12)
  • Western Michigan (Mac)

Additional Notes: Undefeated teams are in bold.

West Virginia is the only undefeated team that has yet to get to 6 wins (obviously, this makes them 5-0). West Virginia plays Baylor on December 3rd, meaning that these two teams can be 11-0 entering conference championship week.  That actually sets up the Big XII pretty nicely to perhaps get a playoff spot.

Alabama plays Texas A&M on 10/22, meaning one of those teams will not be undefeated very soon.

Washington travels to Utah in two weeks.  A trip to Washington State and the conference championship game are the other potential spots for a loss.

Nebraska travels to Ohio State a week after traveling to Wisconsin.  They do not play Michigan.  The best case scenario for the Big 10 might be Nebraska and Michigan winning out and playing in the conference championship game.  If Ohio State beats Nebraska, but loses to Michigan, Michigan could lose to Nebraska in the CCG leaving the Big 10 with only 1-loss teams.  If, for example, Clemson, a Big XII team, Alabama, and Washington are undefeated–the Big 10 would be left out of the playoff, right?

Houston and USF are 6-1, but do not play each other this year in the regular season.  Who can stop Western Michigan?  If they go 13-0, can they sneak into a high pay bowl ahead of an AAC team?  They have wins over Northwestern and Illinois.  In contrast, Houston will have a win over Oklahoma, while USF’s best OOC win will be Syracuse.

While we are at it, let’s all root for Rice, who is 0-6.  The Owls players work too hard to not get a win all year.  This week, they play Prairie View A&M.  This should help the cause considerably.
