Top 25 watch
How big will that be for the program?

I was thinking about the same thing this morning. If FAU doesn't get in the top 25 in the final rankings, the Marshall game is the reason. Maybe it will happen.
Ideally they should be at #25 and we dominated them on a Saturday on ABC without Kiffin or our Mackey award winning consensus All-American. For us to sneak in I think one if not both the service academy schools need to lose because they are playing Power 5 opponents desperate to salvage their season on a high. The games to look at would be Navy losing to K-state, Air Force losing to Wash. st., UF beating Virginia, TAM beating Ok. St. And if BC beats Cincy that helps a lot.
There is a give or take here though TAM would have beaten a ranked team and are on the cusp like us and K-state the same. The eye test is we won the East division for CUSA, won CUSA, won the Boca Bowl, were 11-3 and played a playoff team hard as our first game, had our first Consensus All-American, Kiffin left and we still beat SMU handily. We surged at the right time, lets hope and see. This is our time.
