What it means: The Bulldogs are still two wins away from becoming bowl eligible. They play in Little Rock, Ark. next weekend against the Razorbacks of Arkansas. They host in-state rival Ole Miss Thanksgiving night. Both games are winnable. The Crimson Tide are in good shape to make the national championship for a third-straight year.
