Will Indiana Be Ranked by the CFP This Week? Or Do They Need to Beat Michigan First?

Indiana FINALLY picked up that coveted quality loss that the CFP is always looking for in those SEC teams.  They narrowly lost a game against a Top 10 team (PSU) this weekend.  Indiana's game against OSU doesn't count as a quality loss as they got curb stomped in that game.

Now in addition to IU picking up a quality loss, which is a big talking point when it comes to SEC teams, there were a few teams ranked towards to the bottom of the top 25 that lose which should drop those teams out of the rankings.

#19 Texas lost to an unranked ISU.  They are now 6-4 and should no longer be ranked.

#24 Kansas State lost to WVU for their second loss in a row to drop to 6-4 as well = unranked.

#23 Navy lost to Notre Dame, I honestly wouldn't mind if Navy stayed in the top 25, but they could easily drop out.

Now my final point is, we all know Texas A&M will be ranked this week.  But go look at Texas A&M vs. Indiana.  Neither team has a quality win.  Both are 7-3.  Why shouldn't IU be ranked if Texas A&M will be?

Bonus question, what are the odds Indiana beats Michigan?
