Atlantic Coast Convos 2012 Top 25: Week 14

Don’t Look Now, But Kent State Is Suddenly On the Cusp of Crashing the BCS

As is customary, we’ll be bringing you a new take on the top 25 teams in the country each Monday during the regular season. This week shows little change near the top as Notre Dame clinched its spot in the National Championship Game. The rest of the poll, however, is still a muddled grouping of flawed teams. Disagree at all? Feel free to share that with us below (respectfully, of course).

  1. Two ACC, two MAC, two WAC, one MWC, no Big East. Interesting.

    Kent State has a good shot to make a BCS bowl game if they win against Northern Illinois. Just imagine if they’d beaten Kentucky.

    • Kent State would be a fringe top-10 team if they ran the table, and I agree, should they win the MAC, they stand a great shot to play in a BCS game (and steal OU’s spot — hooray!). So long as they win and UCLA loses, seems like a virtual lock.
