Arizona currently beating up on #19 Oregon 23-8. Even if Wazzu does run the table and finish 12-1, I'm not sure that's enough. 

I highly doubt the Pac-12 makes it this year. They just don't have any team that can stack up to the likes of Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Michigan, Georgia, LSU, Texas or Oklahoma. Washington State is not that good. They've given up the 3rd most points in the Pac-12 this year. I think there's a legit possible that every single team in the Pac-12 this year finishes with at least 3 conference losses. Washington State still has Cal, Arizona, and Washington left. I think they beat Colorado but I could easily see them losing 2 of those 3 against Cal, Arizona, and Washington.

The Fightin Leaches will not be close to making the playoffs. Still impressive how Leach has turned another cellar dweller into a competitive team though. 

Leach is a very good coach. Unfortunately I don't know if he wants a big time job, and I'm not sure how successful he would be at a big time job.

So I just realized that next week’s CBS doubleheader with UGA vs UK and Bama vs LSU could have all 4 teams ranked in the top 10. Kentucky might squeeze in at 10. 

CBS has to be pumped with their pull for this week. The two biggest games of the weekend on back to back.

Not power 5 but UTEP lost too! UAB took them down 19-0. It's UAB's 3rd shutout this year and gets them to 7-1.

Alabama is obviously my number 1 team, but I've got a degree from UAB as well. Good to see them doing well. 7-1 and a few big wins (La Tech and North Texas). Got UTSA and Southern Miss in the next 2 weeks at home and I think they'll win. Do that, and they have a 9 win team, and they have a berth in the C USA title game (which could be in Birmingham). I don't think it's out the question that UAB wins C USA at 11-2.

Yep. It's all in their hands. They should be ranked in the top 25 but they're not. They only received 17 points.
