The soonest M can get back the College Football All-Time Cup (CFACP) is 10/09/10. Here is how...
09/11/10 PSU beats Alabama
10/02/10 Iowa beats PSU
10/09/10 Michigan beats Iowa
With the PSU being the best chance for Alabama to lose in the non-conference, if PSU doesn't win that game, M will likely not have another chance until the bowl, or beyond.
