Fun and interesting filler while we wait for a bowl berth: it starts with each team having their areas where their fanbase resides. Each week, whomever wins gets the team they beat's territory. Sort of a graphical representation of the commutative property, but completely driven by the order in which you played opponents. Yeah, it's meaningless, but interesting nonetheless.

So, in our case, southeastern LA immediately turned to Wake Forest on week one. Then they got beat by Boston College, BC by Purdue, Purdue by Michigan State, MSU by Ohio State. As OSU hasn't lost since, our territory is still OSU. Sadly, no one we beat still owned any territory, so we never show up again.

Interesting that ULL territory becomes Alabama, but LSU territory is Georgia (even though they beat Georgia and lost to Alabama), simply because LSU lost to Florida first.

Also note how USF owns southern Illinois (Illini territory) from week 3 to week 9, until it suddenly goes Houston-SMU-Memphis in only 4 weeks at the end of the year.
