In the span of a month, Rutgers has gone from one of the nation's most disappointing teams to one of the season's biggest surprises.
After dropping five of their first six games, the Scarlet Knights have reeled off four consecutive victories and are one win away from bowl eligibility.
Rutgers isn't the only team hoping a late surge results in an unexpected postseason appearance. The struggles of preseason ACC favorite Clemson resulted in former coach Tommy Bowden's departure, but the Tigers revived their bowl hopes by winning two of their past three games. Clemson (5-5) can become bowl eligible by winning its last two games.
Here's an alphabetical list of teams with five wins this season. We'll update the list each week.
