Oklahoma, Iowa, and ten more teams become bowl eligible.

Preseason Eligibility Watch 

It's time once again to check in and see which teams are postseason eligible (six or more wins). Week eight saw a whopping twelve teams join the growing list of teams who are looking at either a bowl bid in the 2018 college football postseason, or a possible spot in the College Football Playoff.



Oklahoma, Iowa, Washington, Washington State, and Kentucky are the teams from the Power Five conferences that became postseason eligible in Week 8.

Thirteen teams with two wins are still mathematically in the postseason race, but for most of them a loss next week will all but eliminate their slim hopes for a bowl bid.

Here's the complete list of all the teams who have either become postseason eligible, or are still in the running to become postseason eligible. An "*" indicates a team that became postseason eligible in Week 8.
