Thanks to you and 32 for putting info together.Based on 32's work; here are the combined CAA only records for opponents on the remaining schedule for each team with one or fewer losses in the CAA
William and Mary 6 - 9
Maine 8 - 11
Delaware 8 - 6
Elon 8 - 6
Rhode Island 10 - 7
New Hampshire 10 - 4
Richmond 12- 5
Would appear that William and Mary only has 2 teams left with winning records in conference at this point and Maine in the same situation have the inside tracks. The Spiders certainly still have a shot at the title. They will have to play their best particularly in November If they get there it will certainly be a well-earned accomplishment. Go Spiders!
Agree. It’s a logjam and the outcome can really get complicated, but Spiders have a chance to keep it simpler…just keep winning games!Thanks to you and 32 for putting info together.
Agree they need to play their best each week from here out.
Conference is going to have a good team or two with 5-3 conference and 7-4 overall records stay home come playoff time, I have a feeling.
Spiders have played or will play all but Rhode Island on this list, plus Villanova, and can take care of their own business from this point going forward. Pretty much Delaware, Elon, W & M, Villanova, and Spiders play a five team round robin this season (probably most years from here out). One or more of them will be in the 5-3 teams I mentioned above, I fear.
W & M and/or Delaware with their FBS wins could get in with 5-3 records and still be 8-3 overall and take two spots from CAA. I have a sick feeling the conference will get no more than four if that many.
Going to be interesting.
Final in CAA:
No. 14 Richmond (7-2, 5-1) 40,

UNH, Richmond and William & Mary (8-1, 5-1) share CAA first place

Spiders, Tribe, and UNH all tied at 6–1. Elon with the weird end of season bye week is done at 6–2.
Spider win next week gives them the championship and auto bid either straight up or with tiebreaker over UNH.
Too lazy to figure out who gets the auto if W&M and UNH tie for the champ, since they didn’t play.
Regardless, all four seem in great shape for playoffs. Delaware should be able to make a strong case as well with a win over Nova next week to get them to 8.
