Some losses are forgivable.

If you’re dealing with a top team in a year – or in the case of Tennessee and the SEC West, Alabama every year – you’re going to get tagged with a tough defeat that’s more than acceptable.

So who, over the last five years, had the most Elite Losses – the ones to the teams that finished a season with two losses or fewer?

The point behind all of this is to give some teams a break for having to deal with rough spots on the schedule. It’s not your fault … it’s not your fault …

Losses to FBS teams that finished a season with two losses or fewer.
