The Conference Race
The OVC appears to be down to a two team race. SEMO is undefeated with only two games remaining (UTM and at JSU). The Gamecocks have three games remaining: EKU, Tennessee Tech and SEMO.
If our math is right, even if SEMO was to lose next week to UTM, it could still win the conference outright by beating Jacksonville State. Likewise, JSU could drop a game against either EKU or Tech and still win the conference by beating SEMO.
Tennessee Tech may still be in it- we are not sure. It is possible that JSU, Tennessee Tech and SEMO could all have 2 losses, but highly unlikely.
The cure for all of this figurin is for JSU to win every game. Not only does that guaranty an OVC Title, JSU would get a bye in the 1st round of the playoffs and likely home field advantage at least in one game.
If we’ve got it wrong, someone let us know.
