With the Beavers enjoying an off week this weekend as they prepare to face the Huskies in Seattle next Friday, here at BTD we decided to rank every bowl-eligible team. Oregon State is part of an exclusive 27 team club that is bowl eligible through 8 weeks of college football.
Oregon State (6-2) is closer to being ranked then they have been all season. They are unofficially 28th in the latest AP Poll thanks to receiving 25 votes. The Top-25 snubs are very disappointing, but next week the college football playoff committee will release their rankings. Hopefully the committee slots the Beavs into the top-25, but until then here is BTD’s definitive ranking of every bowl-eligible team (6 wins or more) as of October 24th:
- Ohio State
- Penn State
- Ole Miss
- Oklahoma State
- Wake Forest
- Oregon State
- North Carolina
- Coastal Carolina
The Pac-12, Big Ten and SEC lead the way with five bowl eligible teams a piece. The Pac-12 obviously has less teams though and it’s pretty impressive to have 5-of-12 teams already bowl eligible, with Utah one win away. On the flip side the Mountain West and Mid-American conference have zero bowl eligible teams (yikes).
Overall I think the Pac-12 will have 7 or 8 bowl eligible teams by the end of the year. Stanford, Washington State, Arizona & Arizona State have some work to do but a couple of those teams will definitely get to six wins before the season is over.
