Michigan joins Boise State, Wisconsin, and Alabama as teams projected to finish the regular season undefeated. Boise State has the best chance with #23 TCU visiting them in 5 weeks being their only remaining test. Michigan is nearly as likely to finish with 1 loss and with a finish against Nebraska and Ohio State they could be tested if those teams come together after early struggles and suspensions.
Of the teams projected to have 1 loss, 5 of them have a better than 20% chance at going undefeated, so there is a good chance one of them pulls it off. Most likely is Stanford (they get Oregon in Palo Alto this year) but LSU is right there.
What about Oklahoma? Their 4 toughest remaining games come in their last 5 games and the finish with Oklahoma State and the computer says the chance of exactly one loss is 43% with a 23% chance of not losing any. Oklahoma State themselves is at 42% and 22% so very close behind due in part of that finishing game being in Stillwater.
