Three wins over ranked teams. We have one.
OMG I will die laughing if Bama goes to Citrus Bowl. " Welcome to the Jungle" slums of Orlando.
It’s all about the bowl. Not the opponent. Think money, recruiting, 11 wins and exposure.

If its against UVA it will be both sides. That place will be a home game for us.
LSU beats #4 UGA
Oregon beats #5 Utah
Baylor beats #6 Oklahoma
Ohio beats #8 Wisconsin
#9 FLORIDA becomes #5 FLORIDA
I don’t think so. FWIW, I hate seeing a team drop after a conference championship loss like that. I mean, Wisconsin should not drop below Penn State because Penn State couldn’t make their conference championship game and therefore can’t take another loss.
It tells you on stub hub, shows ACC on one side than all the other possibilities on the other.
Not going to lie I wouldnt be mad if Wisconsin gets the Orange but it’s very unlikely they stay above us if they lose.
$17.00 Orange Bowl tickets?
Georgia won’t move up if they win, they’ll be 4.
We're a lock for an NY6. I think two or maybe even three of those teams are going to drop below us after Saturday. tOSU will probably mangle Wisky, and I think Oregon will beat Utah. The loser of the OU/Baylor game should drop below us, but they'll only do that to Baylor. Ooooooooooooooklahoma is one of their darlings.
So, if Viginia loses badly to Clemson and they drop from the polls, that means Orange Bowl can pick any ACC team they want; not highest rated according to Nick de la Tore. Does that mean they can pick Notre Dame?
I don't know, but am wishful thinking.
Clearly they’re not if they have them ranked 3rd out of the 4 1-loss teams.
You mean Florida jumps Baylor who beat Oklahoma. Not gonna happen. They would also keep Georgia ahead of us.
If all that happens and Clemson loses, we are still not in. If that all happens, it would go:
1) Ohio State
No. Notre dame is an option for the Orange...but only in exchange for the SEC/B1G team. The ACC is locked in.
In that case I hope they pick Miami or FSU so we can beat them again!
But it will/should be UVA because they won their division.

Jerry Palm came out with his new list and even he was beside himself. He never thought the committee would put us above Penn St. Said we had the biggest move in the rankings outside of #5.
Michigan vs Kentucky - ouch; Michigan has 3 losses, Kentucky has 5 (win-win for Kentucky)
Penn St vs Auburn - might be a really entertaining game
Minnesota vs Alabama - Bama will get their bell rung (they don't fare well after losing the Iron Bowl and getting kicked out of the CFP Club)
FSU vs W. Kentucky - the Noles are BACK!!!! in Shreveport
Birmingham Bowl - Miami vs Tulane
Georgia loss to LSU will drop them to #6
Utah win over Oregon will keep them at #5
Oklahoma win over Baylor will vault them to #4 and in the CFP
Baylor loss will drop them out of the top 10 to #11
Wisconsin loss to Ohio St will drop them to #12
Florida goes to #7
Penn St goes to #8
Auburn to #9
Bama to #10
Biggest question/drama will be Oklahoma or Utah at #4
So you weren't thinking Wisconsin was going to move up this week, despite beating #8 Minnesota by 3 TDs on the road to win their Division?? Wisconsin was right behind Penn State and UF going in, and the order swap among them exactly reflects what actually happened in the games -- UWs win was the best by far, then UF hammering mediocre fsu, then PSU struggling with garbage rutgers.
From the Wisconsin perspective, being two spots ahead of Penn State is what matters; they need to give Ohio State a decent game and thus not get penalized much for losing (i.e. stay ahead of Penn State) -- it'll be the debate of how much a team should get hurt for picking up another loss by virtue of making their conference title game, as opposed to a team (psu) that is sitting at home.
If Wisconsin loses & drops behind Penn State, they're obviously behind UF too so the Orange is not really an option for them. Cotton could be if they only drop to right behind, but if they fall even further they'd be down in danger zone of Citrus/Outback/etc. That's why some projections have them in the Rose Bowl, while others have them way down in the Gator Bowl even. Wisconsin has a lot riding on their performance Saturday, even assuming they don't actually win!
That is definitely the most likely outcome in that scenario of wins and losses - with one notable caveat: If LSU absolutely skull drags UGA by at least 21 points, UF could finish as high as 6th and go to the Sugar as the highest ranked, non-playoff SEC team. A long shot to be sure, but the thought of the mass brain explosion that would occur in dwagville is too pleasant to contemplate to be dismissed out of hand.
