While many college football teams have been effectively taken out of any college football conference division races, some know that they will have very little time to prepare after the final game of the season.
However, there are those teams that walk a fine line in terms of obtaining an automatic bowl berth to have one more chance to compete before the season truly ends.
Those teams have at least five wins have a chance to make it to postseason play, but have had below average performances for most of the season.
While they have managed that one upset game, they have done little since then, and are struggling to get into a low-profile bowl game to take home a trophy and gain some kind of momentum that coaches hope can translate into success next season.
But there are key teams that fans will not be craving to watch, and they will not be rushing to their televisions to watch these teams continue to under-perform in their bowl games should they even qualify.
