2. I still won't feel comfortable without a Penn State loss. I have no way of knowing whether they are factoring in conference championships yet. Just ask TCU.
3. So there's another team up in ******** that must feel they're being set up for an AAC screwjob. They need to hope winning out against 9-2 Toledo and whomever ends up MAC East champion is enough to avoid being jumped by Navy, not to mention hope surprise losses don't put Houston or Boise State in conference title games.
4. Assuming that the loser of The Game is out, we are left with Washington as likely #4. Wisconsin or Penn State gets in if Washington slips up and they win the B1G Championship. Oklahoma/Oklahoma State winner needs Washington to slip up and the winner of The Game to take the B1G Championship. I don't go farther down than that because too many teams need to lose and Oklahoma/Oklahoma State bookending Colorado appears to me as the PAC-12 getting screwed unless USC magically wins (which itself requires a few too many teams to lose).
