With UCF's loss, Boise is probably in the driver's seat, but they have some challenges ahead.

AppSt can go undefeated if they win at SC
Army has a winnable schedule, and their only loss is the 2ot game at Michigan

It will always be the winner of the Mountain West versus AAC with the team with the best record or highest ranked getting the bid. App St could go undefeated and they won't register on the screen.

Wasn’t it Western Michigan like 3 years ago?

We should be rooting for independent Army. The resurgence of military academy football is a fantastic story.

Both Army and Navy found success with triple option offenses. Which seems to work well with teams with undersized offensive linemen. But it seems that many fans here would rather lose than change to a triple option offense.

Most folks riding with Boise despite games @BYU, @San Jose St (beat Ark), Wyoming (Beat MO), @Utah St, and MWC CG vs likely Fresno/SDSt

BYU game will get some hype, as it's a time-TBA game on ABC/ESPN/E2/EU.

I’ll go with SMU. They have a good chance to play on New Years Day. They are 4-0 with former Texas QB Shane Buechele and a strong running game.
“HC Sonny Dykes gives a lot of the credit to offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, a former Auburn and UConn OC whom he courted for the sake of fortifying the Mustangs ground game. That was Rhett’s strength,” Dykes said. “And what he was really good at was being able to figure out how to run the ball and be creative and teach it, do all the little different nuances that go on. So as we started putting the offense together, it made sense to kinda combine the two.”
On the first series at TCU, Lashlee called a double reverse play that included a pitch back to Buechele, who then threw a 46-yard strike to Kylen Granson. From that point forward it was game on.

Army has two FCS. Morgan & VMI. And only Air Force & Navy are qualifying good top 50.

This is College Football.

I like SMUs chances in that schedule. But without a few years of Prep, voters definitely look at you with skepticism. And that’s the rub. It’s still stupidly subjective and not game play.

I voted for best team and not easiest schedule.

AppSt's resume took a huge leap up with UNC 's performance against Clemson

The 10 votes for UCF (18%) not looking good.

Army is not in a G5 conference. Therefore they are not eligible for the bowl spot
