One potential opponent: UCF. While the Knights still have no real shot at making the four-team playoff given the number of teams ahead of them, simply moving ahead of Ohio State is a big step for those who believe that UCF has been disrespected compared to brand-name programs like Ohio State. The conference title game losers could still be in the mix, but what if these are the conference title games losers? Or Oklahoma, 12-1 with a Big 12 championship?
