If we have even a remote shot at the playoff, we need UCF to be dominate. We would face them in the AAC Championship game.
We need to be unbeaten as well but we could really use the momentum IF we were to beat a highly ranked UCF team that hadn’t lost a game in 2 seasons going into the AAC championship game. And right before the committee decides who is IN.
Playoffs are still a long shot regardless but that scenario could really help us if it were to happen and we had another magical season.
