AAC Week 9 Recap The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

Well after 9 weeks of college football things are starting to come into shape. Teams who continue to win games will become bowl eligible.  And the teams who are not becoming bowl eligible are just praying for the end of the season. There are clear-cut favorites in the AAC  who are head and shoulders above the rest. As the old saying goes the cream always rises to the top.  Memphis ranked #22 and UCF ranked #14 both won by 40 points this week.  These two seem destined to play each other in the AAC Champ game.

The Good

UCF still leads this group as they are unbeaten and the games haven’t been close. USF even with the loss is still in this group as it took a miracle 4th and 24 conversion for Houston to beat them. Eventually, we knew that their slow starts would come back to bite them and it did.

Memphis is in this group as they took care of a pesky Tulane team en route to their 7th victory of the season.

SMU who improved to 6-2 with a win over Tulsa is up next for UCF and may prove as a tough test for them.  Houston jumps back into this group as they get the much-needed win over USF.

Navy is also in this group as they had a bye, up next for them is Temple in Philly.

The Bad

Tulane, they need 3 out of 4 wins in order to become bowl eligible. In fact, the good news is they have ECU, Cincinnati Houston and SMU left on their schedule. So it is possible for them to get bowl eligible.

Temple is also needing 3 wins to become bowl eligible. They have Navy, Cincinnati UCF and Tulsa left. If they can swing the UCF or Navy game it should make them bowl eligible.

The Ugly

UConn after their 52-12 loss to Missouri they need to win 3 out of 4 with UCF, USF, Boston College, and Cincy left. They will probably win 1 of those.

Additionally, ECU is 2-6 and would need to win out to become bowl eligible.

Tulsa has 7 losses already, therefore, they are not bowl eligible. This is a terrible blow for a team that last year won 10 games and high hopes for this season.
