Gotta feel bad for Troy, the team with the best record coming out of the Sun Belt. They lost to three RANKED teams, and beat Oklahoma State, but the loss to Florida Atlantic cost them the conference championship, and that was that.

Also, poor South Carolina. Five straight losses to finish the season. It can't end much worse than that for a team that was bowl eligible and national championship contender in mid-October!
