Just like last year when Northern Illinois barely got into a bowl game with a 6-6 record, it's still a wait-and-see situation with our 7-5 record. This following list is not 100% accurate, (there's too many IFs) but is still a good gauge of which games you should be caring about in terms of post-season chances. 68 teams will be going bowling...will we?
Here's who you should be rooting for today. For explanations, see HuskieWire.

We'll talk resumes and open bowl spots after the chaos. I'm thinking that Purdue victory will turn some heads in the selection process.
This post will update throughout the day with score updates.
