Prognosis on the five winless teams (STILL) left in FBS

Since 2009, only one FBS team has completed a winless season. There have been only two occasions since 2002 where two teams played an entire season without winning a game. Yet with a dozen completed weeks in the 2013 college football season, a full handful of teams are still searching for win No. 1. We're making the wrong kind of history. 

American
Connecticut (0-9) - For the first time since October 12, the Huskies actually flirted with victory this week. Trailing 28-21, Connecticut held the ball with a chance to tie the game. That's when it all fell apart. The Huskies immediately went three and out, which SMU turned into a field goal. On their next drive, UConn threw a pick six. Ballgame. In fact, after pulling within that one score, Connecticut's next three possessions went a cumulative 34 yards on nine plays with one punt and two interceptions. Final score: SMU 38, Connecticut 21. 
The road ahead: at Temple, vs. Rutgers, vs. Memphis

Conference USA
Southern Miss (0-10) - Never a doubt: Southern Miss was down 27-0 at halftime and 41-0 after three en route to a 41-7 loss to Florida Atlantic. The Golden Eagles were out-rushed 333-20. Quarterback Nick Mullens completed 12-of-37 passes for 169 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions. Southern Miss has scored 15 points or fewer in nine of their 10 losses; their season high is 23. The 22-game losing streak is now tied for the ninth-longest in FBS history. I could go on but, good gosh, who wants to read any more?
The road ahead: vs. Middle Tennessee, at UAB

MAC
Miami, Ohio (0-10) - At least they got it out of the way early. Miami (Ohio) was beaten 24-6 on Wednesday in undoubtedly their best chance (at least on paper) to win a game this season. With a season high of 17, the RedHawks have scored a grand total of 96 points this season. 
The road ahead: vs. Buffalo, at Ball State.

Mountain West
Hawaii (0-10) - I still think this team wins a game at some point but, well, they're down to the final two bullets in the chamber and they just wasted a great shot. Hawaii led 14-7 at the half at 21-14 late in the fourth quarter, but lost to San Diego State 28-21 in overtime. 
The road ahead: at Wyoming, vs. Army

Sun Belt
Georgia State (0-9) - Georgia State was downright competitive compared to most of their winless colleagues, playing Louisiana-Lafayette to a 35-21 final at the Georgia Dome. The Panthers actually moved the ball at a respectable rate, throwing for 298 yards and two scores and adding 183 yards (on 4.7 per carry) on the ground. 
The road ahead: at Arkansas State, vs. South Alabama
