Cincy at OSU Highlights Schedule/Projections for All 106 Teams in Action

Cincinnati visits Ohio State at 6 p.m. in the last big conference clash–the start times and projections listed below for the 106 FBS teams in action this week show the attention turning to conference play as the conference pecking order is about set until the Bowl Games. That game is almost a “play-in” game between the American and Big Ten for an outside shot at the playoff, as Tommy Tuberville tries to pull his third upset in as many tries against Urban Meyer.

The Big Ten has a pulse after a huge Week 4, but cannot afford any more upsets as they hope to make the tough case for a one-loss Michigan State or undefeated Nebraska or Penn State to sneak into the Final Four.

The American Athletic would love to pitch an undefeated Cincinnati team if they could win the title and if Central Florida could beat BYU next week to go along with East Carolina’s big wins over Virginia Tech and UNC and near miss at South Carolina.

For the rest of the season it will all be about winning the conference–with the pecking order of conferences pretty much set except for adjusting for the occasional upset by a smaller conference, or games by BYU and Notre Dame. Here is the summary of each conference’s opportunities to score big wins against other conferences this week, followed by the list of all games.

AAC 3-5 projected record, projected to lose by a combined -76 pts – three AAC teams visit top 25 teams, including Cincy at Ohio State

ACC 8-5, +82 pts – favored in 4 non-conference, while Syracuse underdog vs. ND

Big Ten 8-6, +70 pts – Rutgers and OSU need to handle Tulane and Cincy

Big12 5-3, +37 pts – K-State and TCU both have pretty easy wins

CUSA 5-6, -49 pts – La Tech at Auburn one of three chances for big upsets

FCS 1-1 -10 pts – E Illinois and Yale decent chances vs. Ohio and Army

Ind 2-1, +32 pts – Notre Dame can keep title hopes alive vs. Syracuse

MAC 4-6, -76 pts – Ohio hosts E Illinois in the one toss-up game

MWC 4-6, -47 pts – Colorado St & Wyoming longshots at BC & Michigan St

Pac-12 5-5, +0 pts – rating will stay the same with all conference games

SBC 3-5, -38 pts – Texas St. at Tulsa better of two longshot chances for upsets

SEC 7-4, +75 pts – All 3 big favorites with Auburn must vulnerable (vs. La Tech)

The table indicates that Cincinnati is ranked 5oth in the Pythagorean Ratings, plays at 6 p.m. Eastern, has a 25% chance of winning and is a 12-point underdog at Ohio State, which is ranked 29th and from the Big Ten.
