As for the other schools that almost made it, I might have gone with Southern Miss, except it suffered two bad road losses to UAB and Middle Tennessee. Don't be surprised if I rank one of the three first-place teams (Louisiana Tech, UTEP, Middle Tennessee) of Conference USA at some point. Other midmajors that caught my eye include Mercer, which is 12-2 in the Atlantic Sun; Delaware, which is undefeated in the CAA; UW-Green Bay, which is 11-2 in the Horizon; Iona, which has a two-game lead in the MAAC; and Boston University, which is 12-2 in the Patriot League.
