If UTSA beats Tulane this weekend NT takes sole possession of first place in the West since we hold the tiebreaker over Rice.

 

Yep.  Provided UNT wins.  :thumbsu:

Reading more.....overrall shouldn't matter, so my comment above is fruitless.

 

However, I would have to assume ECU's BCS ranking would be higher than UNT's if both teams were to finish the season without another loss.  This is based on the fact we still face NCSU and Marshall.

 

Kinda depends on whether Ball St. beats NIU in a week or 2. NIU is ranked, Ball St. is 35 in the BCS. They beat NIU, they are top 25.

 

And we beat them for there only loss of the season.

 

Interesting times. But 1st, we both must win out.

Marshall is pretty low and NCSt is lower, so I don't know that they will help you.   We're kindof in the same boat, but we're hoping Ball St. continues to rise.  Ideally, we will be their only loss on the year.  If so, that should help us in the BCS rankings tremendously.

Tulane has historically been a bad team.  I'm very surprised at their current record.

 

However, I wouldn't be too surprised to see them start a skid of losses.  Look at most of their conference wins.....not a huge margin.

We'll have to see about that whole Ball State thing....looks like their schedule isn't that stellar up until now.  They'll have something to prove, but you all are correct.....never know what's going to happen between now and then.

 

:beer: Here's to a Championship game between UNT and ECU....in Greenville!  LOL  :pirate:

Ball State could have given us a gift with their loss to us if they end up ranked.  It could help us move past ECU.

SIAP, but I didn't see it:

 

Tiebreaker 
The following tiebreaker formula is recommended for the Conference USA Football Championship game: 
 
Two-team tie to determine host 
1. Highest regular season winning percentage based on overall Conference USA play. 
2. If tied, head to head between tied teams. 
3. If still tied, team with highest BCS ranking - as already thoroughly discussed in this thread
 
Even if we both win this weekend, I foresee a dip for both of us. UTEP will, unfortunately, make us drop (even if we win by 35). And #52 Buffalo will climb, based on their 27 pt win over #55 Ohio, among others. Just hang tight, it's gonna be a crazy season-ending watching those BCS standings

And here I was being collegial.....

 

Do you REALLY think that any team in CUSA would turn down an invite to a conference that has a better TV contract?  You're crazy if you think the answer is yes...

 

Besides, that has nothing to do with this season, this year.....wouldn't you rather play a team that you may never play again?

No, I wouldn't want a defector to be the champ. It's not that I fault you for leaving, but you're gone and ECU or Tulane or Tulsa winning anything doesn't really help the conference as much as is those schools staying in the conference winning.
Just my take.

That's better reasoning than "screw ECU".....

 

If I were unbiased, I would agree with this take on it.  However, I of course want ECU to win, so that is what I pull for!
