Undefeated

Since going 5-0 for the first time since 2000 the Clemson Tigers have once again become somewhat relevant in the NCAA football scene.  Being unbeaten through week 5 is a tough task for all schools, much less one that played three straight opponents ranked in the AP top 25. 

The BCS games and National Championship consistently rely on season records to dictate at least one aspect of the criteria for choosing which teams get to participate.  It is evident that remaining undefeated through 5 games is difficult by the sheer fact that only 15 teams remain undefeated (13 in the AP top 25) out of 120 teams.

 

Below is the scheduled games for the October 7-8 games for the remaining undefeated teams:

 

LSU vs. Florida

Alabama vs. Vanderbilt

Oklahoma vs. Texas**

Wisconsin – Bye

Boise St. vs. Fresno St. (10/7/2011)

Oklahoma St. vs. Kansas

Stanford vs. Colorado

Clemson vs. Boston College

Michigan vs. Northwestern

Georgia Tech vs. Maryland

Kansas St. vs. Missouri

Illinois vs. Indiana

Houston vs. East Carolina

Texas Tech vs. Texas A&M

 

**Since two unbeaten teams play this weekend, by logic, there will only be a maximum of 14 undefeated teams remaining on Sunday.  This list will, by its nature, become shorter every week.

 

I think three teams have the biggest chance at losing their undefeated status this weekend.  I think the Texas Longhorns face a tall task against a Sooner attack, and Missouri may prove more than the rolling Kansas St. Wildcats can handle.  I also believe Texas Tech may have trouble handling Texas A&M after two dissapointing losses.

 

What teams do you think will lose this weekend?  We know from our trolling homers that East Carolina is on their list to upset.
