    So it appears the west division is kicking the east division's ass right now. 4 teams in the west have 1 conference loss and only 1 team in the east has one conference loss. We are now past halfway through conference play and almost nobody knows which 2 teams will play in the conference championship, and nobody knows where that game will be played.

    East Division Contenders
    1. UCF - 3-1 - UCF is the favorite to take the east division crown with their 3-1 conference record. The Knights have yet to play divisional foes ECU and Southern Miss.

    2. Southern Miss - 2-2 - Southern Miss is 2-2 and has had some rough defeats. They were able to knock of a talented SMU squad. They face ECU and UCF in what will make or break their season.

    3. ECU - 2-2 - ECU's two conference losses were both to west division teams so they are still very alive in the conference race. Last week's loss to Tulane was painful, but they can make up for it by beating Southern Miss at home this week. The schedule won't be easy with S.Miss, UTEP, and UCF still left.

    West Division Contenders
    1. SMU - 4-1 - SMU has already beaten 2 of the best teams in the CUSA with wins over UTEP and UCF, but had a bad loss to Southern Miss. They still have 2 huge games remaining against Houston and Tulane. Tulane travels to Dallas this week in one of the biggest games of the season for the conference race.

    2. UTEP - 3-1 - UTEP lost to SMU, but has beaten Houston and Tulane. Sitting at 3-1, they have a great shot to win the west because the major divisional games have passed. They still play eastern division teams in ECU and UCF. If they win out, the UCF game may decide the winner of the west division.

    3. Houston - 4-1 - Houston is sitting pretty, but there is much doubt because of weak non-conference performances. A blowout loss to UCLA and a squeaker to New Mexico raise doubts. Tulane and SMU are still on the schedule. They lost to UTEP, so they will need somebody to knock off the Miners.

    4. Tulane 4-1 - Tulane only has 1 conference loss, but they are not in the best of shape. They have yet to play SMU or Houston but have already lost to UTEP. If UTEP loses another game which is likely, Tulane has a shot at the title.

    **I put about 20 minutes into this, so there may be a few inaccuracies.

    I'm doubting UTEP. You still got UCF on the schedule ;). Some would say winning in Orlando is impossible.

    If I can win my last two games, I win the division. That would be insane with my current record (4-6), lol.

    Wow that is crazy. If you lose the championship game, you'd go into a bowl game at 6-7 LOL.

    I gotta say, having the conference championship game and divisional races really makes this dynasty interesting. Now if we could get a little content going. ;)

    UCF Clinches Spot in Title Game

    The UCF Knights locked up the Eastern division with a win over ECU today. UCF sits at 10-1 and will face the best of the West, UTEP, next week. UCF still does not know who they will play. Here are the scenarios:

    Title Game
    UTEP beats Tulsa Tulane beats Rice UCF beats UTEP Then Tulane @ UCF
    UTEP beats Tulsa Tulane beats Rice UTEP beats UCF Then UCF @ UTEP
    UTEP beats Tulsa Rice beats Tulane UCF beats UTEP Then UTEP @ UCF
    UTEP beats Tulsa Rice beats Tulane UTEP beats UCF Then UCF @ UTEP
    Tulsa beats UTEP Tulane beats Rice UCF beats UTEP Then Tulane @ UCF
    Tulsa beats UTEP Tulane beats Rice UTEP beats UCF Then UTEP @ UCF
    Tulsa beats UTEP Rice beats Tulane UCF beats UTEP Then Tulane @ UCF
    Tulsa beats UTEP Rice beats Tulane UTEP beats UCF Then UCF @ UTEP


    Experts predict UTEP and Tulane to roll through their week 12 mathups leading to a huge week 13 matchup between UTEP and UCF. If UTEP wins they're in, if they lose, they are out and Tulane will face UCF.

    Like i said before... If you beat me 1 out of 6 times i'm better than you :p haha. Just think i should be in the title game and be undefeated in the conference. Got a sim loss to Southern Miss and after 5 games of me winning or close to, I get blown out. Definitely killed a lot of interest here...

    With a win over UTEP, UCF solidified its spot in the title game and will face Tulane. Both teams are 7-1 in conference and have not played each other. So I'm guessing the tiebreaker for home team is BCS standings, which means UCF would host Tulane

    OK, I'll be around at 8 eastern. I'll text Bearcat to make sure we advance by then.
    Edit:,we haven't advanced. Maybe sometime later, as we may have a while as we wait for the patvh.
