    The way the ranking were isn't that difficult. Look at strength of schedule and tell me UCF has best good teams on par with what the top 8 have.

    And Notre Dame has beaten 4 ranked opponents this season.

    It's the AP Poll and meaningless, now. The only poll that matters is the College Football Payoff poll and, in that poll, UCF doesn't get a sniff regardless of how Saturday and the conference championships play out. They may get a shift up this week, because WVU lost, but no more than one position and no way do they jump anybody. They may not move at all and Florida jumps them.

    Need proof? Look at the final AP, Coaches, and CFP polls from last year. UCF was 6th in the AP, 7th in the Coaches poll, and 12 in the CFP.

    UCF SHOULD be in if undefeated over ANY 2 loss team. If you keep them out, you've basically told all teams outside of P5 that they are playing for a New Year's Day Bowl rather than a National Championship when they lace 'em up at Spring Practice.

    Similarly, I don't think they WILL or SHOULD get in over any undefeated or 1 loss team from a P5 this year.

    A win over USF is meaningless. The Bulls have lost 4 in row and their defense is worse than Ohio State's. They lost to Tulane, at home, by 4 touchdowns. Tulane!

    If UCF doesn't mop the field with the USF, they won't deserve what they won't get.

    Was the above intended or a type-o? (Sorry, I chuckled when I read it it.)

    They should put UCF at 4 if they get their butt kicked by Bama then everyone can say they told you so. I still think they deserve a chance.

    So in that scenario you would say those 2 loss teams would be in over UCF, but not a 1 loss Notre Dame? A one loss Notre Dame who also beat that 2 loss Michigan? Lol.

    I was including ND already in the playoff. ND would be ahead of the three 2 loss teams I named.

    For UCF that was their biggest game of the season, because basically their one game against a P5 school. While for Notre Dame it was just another game, and came after a big game. So UCF definitely would be a lot more focused and fired up for that game, than Notre Dame was going to be. Notre Dame has shown what they can do in their big games. Which at that time that Pitt game wasn't one for Notre Dame, like it was UCF.

    UCF played Pitt before ND played Pitt. Pitt/ND was a big game.

    UCF is 7th in offensive efficiency with a 77.2 rating. Alabama(99.6) Oklahoma(99.6) Georgia(90.5) Wash. St.(83.5) West Virginia(82.2) and Clemson(79.6) are ahead of them.

    UCF is 52nd in defensive efficiency and 29th in Special Teams efficiency.

    UCF is 18th in overall efficiency this season.

    Top 4 in overall efficiency are Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, Michigan with Oklahoma, West Virginia and Notre Dame at 5, 6 and 7th...before anyone ask Ohio State is 13th in total effieciency.


    Team efficiencies are based on the point contributions of each unit to the team's scoring margin, on a per-play basis. The values are adjusted for strength of schedule and down-weighted for "garbage time" (based on win probability). The scale goes from 0 to 100; higher numbers are better and the average is roughly 50 for all categories. Efficiencies update daily during the season.

    13th seems a bit high for Ohio State.
