What if undefeated season scenarios
If your team goes undefeated like UCF just did in 2018...based on your OOC schedule—what would happen?

1. Playoff spot
2. Access Bowl
3. New Orleans Bowl


I’m guessing App State w/Penn State, Charlotte, Southern Miss, and Gardner-Webb would just be on the #2 scenario.

RE: What if undefeated season scenarios
no SBC team will get a playoff spot, so 1 is not really an option..
#2 still probably not reserved for a SBC team.
#3 however, would be a disappointment after an undefeated season

RE: What if undefeated season scenarios
If App were to be the only undefeated G5 team, then it's likely they'd be in a NY6 bowl....mainly because G5 teams typically don't go undefeated

It would be interesting how things worked out though. Boise made it in the first one with 2 losses but there were a lot of unknowns about how that would all work since it was the first year of the CFP.

SBC will get a bit of a boost from having the championship game next year.

#2 is an option if a Belt team goes undefeated. If Troy had beat Boise st., LSU and finished undefeated they would have been ranked high enough for an access bowl. All they would need is for UCF to lose a game.

Since the Access Bowl is only reserved for conference champions, I think a SB champion can make it to the access bowl. Troy had a pretty good season. If they hadn't have been blown out by South Alabama, AND UCF didn't go undefeated, they were in the conversation for the access this year. UCF now is in the same situation Houston was in a few years ago. If they manage to go undefeated again, then they need a shot at the playoff spot.

Even if Troy didn't lose against USA, I'd still think Memphis or UCF would've gotten the call first

I think you are right.

I agree, I'm just saying that they would have been in the conversation.

RE: What if undefeated season scenarios
I think that this year proves it's next to impossible if not, completely impossible for any G5 team to make the playoff in the current format.

For number 2, still not a guarantee for any Sun Belt team. If there are any other undefeated G5 teams, they get in over a sun belt team. Even a 1 loss team from the AAC probably gets in over an undefeated sun belt team.

So, that leaves us with the New Orleans bowl or potentially working out a deal with another bowl and conference to switch.

Is it right? No, but it's the reality. The next question needs to be, how do we change that?
