      You mean Oklahoma State finished 8-4 in 1997

      I don’t know how someone researches facts like this…it’s certainly deeper than simple Googling. Props, Amy.

      Well, it may be another long week for Purdue & Vandy again.
      I thought Wisconsin was going to have it rough this year & I can see Clemson getting over that hurdle by beating
      Oklahoma needs a week off after the start of this season.

      I really wish you would exclude match-ups with less than 4 games for the most likely to win section. A whole slew of 1-0s is pointless and provides no interesting information (somebody had to win the first game).

      I love it, CMU needs to get back down to recruiting Florida after striking gold with the likes of Antonio Brown.

      “It’s both a justification and an excuse.”

      Yep, What’s the point of Houston playing an Oklahoma, winning by 10, going undefeated the rest of the season, winning they’re conference & conference championship & not making it to the CFP? It really depends on how (if) Oklahoma can run the table, how they win their games, scores, did they struggle…etc. The eye ball test will play a big factor in this at the end of the season, if Houston can beat their opponents by 30+ a game & beat a very good Louisville team, they still have to over come the other conference champions & favoritism from the Bama’s, Sooners, Clemson…etc, fans that will travel like the article says but if the Cougars loses then it is over for them anyways.

      It won’t matter. Oklahoma will have more than one loss before the season is over.

      The question is would a 12-0 Houston get in over a 12-1 Stanford, Washington, Florida State, Michigan, say Georgia or take your pick from Baylor/Oklahoma/Texas/TCU winning the Big 12.

      The answer is no. Houston’s SOS require OU to run the table and Louisville to be a 10 game winner, and for the SOS of all those P5 to be well below norm. That wont happen. The SOS will kill UH as will the lack of quality opponents. And even if they manage to be 3rd or 4th in the polls the committee and computers will push UH to the 5th slot.

      The entire system is designed to lock out a hot G5 school like Boise State under Petersen (now UW coach) or Houston under Herman (who’s P5 coach will he be in January?). That wont change.

      1. Let’s take one week at a time. Houston has not yet gone 12-0. In fact, at this point, they’re far away from that goal.

      2. I’d could successfully be argued that every single AAC team is better than Kansas. It could also be argued that at least 8 of them are better than Iowa State.

      3. I’d take more stock in this article if it wasn’t authored by a Big XII team supporter.

      “First, the Sooners will play five times, think about that, five times more Power opponents than will the Cougars. If both teams are playing at the same level, it means, theoretically, that Oklahoma has a five times greater chance of losing in 10 of the 12 weeks than does Houston.”

      So every P5 school is 2x as difficult as every G5 team? Gimmie a break. Yes, they’re in no question.

      yes, to a 13-0 Houston team being above Oklahoma in the CFP….but not over a 5 loss SEC squad….

      I’d say the committee can say the same thing they said before. Houston, you won a Conference Championship Game. That’s an extra data point. The XII doesn’t have a conference championship game, and that matters.

      Thought-provoking article; well done. Long way to go though.

      One thing to think of is the human element. While the stats regarding SOS may back up your point, the committee may take Houston instead due to the critical backlash (and potential political backlash) that would occur in this scenario. Remember that when Utah was left out of the BCS, Senator Orin Hatch got involved to press the case which eventually led to changes in G5 access. With the committee now in place, do they risk a similar situation.

      Head-to-head win should have much more weight.

        Indeed Yang, a better what if scenario would be a conference champion Texas with one loss vs. an undefeated Houston. Who goes then, when there’s no head to head?

      If the
      cougars draw a crowd of 35000 to 45000. I think they will get in but I am reasonable sure this won’t do this, this year. What does 2017-18 schedule look like?

      Sorry, no. If Houston is perfect and Oklahoma lost to Houston, Houston should go and Oklahoma should learn to take their non-conference games more seriously.

      schedule doesn’t matter as much as head to head takes care of it…And this is biased. Power 5 team doesn’t automatically mean good. There were 5 teams ranked in the top 25 from the AAC last year. That doesn’t come easy as voters always want teams to prove it if your from the G5 (unlike teams like Florida who get gifted rankings). By the end of the Year USF will also be ranked and high too so that’s another ranked opponent Houston faces. No way Oklahoma hops Houston (assuming Houston goes undefeated and OK runs the table).

      ou should end up with at least 3 loses…..Houston, Ohio St and TEXAS….so none of this will be an issue

      Don’t think your plan accounted for Louisville crushing FSU 63-20. If both remain undefeated UofH can knock off 2 top 5 opponents. That should be plenty to give them a much deserved shot at the playoffs.
