Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

While we obviously wish to be ranked higher, with two losses, this is about as good as to be expected realistically. But this is putting the cart way before the horse.

Plus, several sets of teams ranked above us are set to play each other, as well.

Here's the full table:
