James Madison isn't ranked in the CFP poll, since it's in the second year of the two-year transition from FCS to FBS and therefore isn't eligible to play in a bowl game. But the Dukes are No. 18 in the AP poll.

So we're keeping JMU's games in this report, because we're not going to honor the NCAA's shortsightedness. The university is in the midst of its second appeal to the NCAA to reduce the transition to one year.
