Lemme guess, the only G5 is UCF and they are somewhere in the high teens or low 20s?

I'm not even gonna give them a click so you can tell me if I'm right.

Also outside of Clemson the only ACC I saw was Syracuse. Cincinnati not being in there is head scratcher. Army was also really close.

We'll end the year with at least two and likely three G5 teams in the polls. That's pretty standard every year and a clear case of these voters undervaluing G5 teams. Cinci and Boise St. should both be in there. Cincinnati only getting 25 votes is really head scratching.

Also odd - because of their post season ban, Missouri wasn't eligible to receive votes in the preseason. I'm not sure what not being able to play in a bowl has to do with being one of the best 25 teams in the nation, but apparently that's a rule.

Texas A&M may be the most important team in football this season from a national title perspective. They play Alabama, Clemson, LSU, and Georgia, all of which have title aspirations. Who they knock off or don't could really impact the playoff.

I noted that Auburn made the list of overrated; since I fully expect the Tulane-UCF game to be a game between a pair of unbeaten teams, the luster on them will probably drop off a bit.
