You can apply for the match yes.

Generally a terrible idea because most programs wont rank you because you dont have the CS done.

CS Results typically take anywhere from 1.5 - 3 months to come out, so ROL submission is on Feb 15th, and therefore you wont have your CS results out. Thus they wont rank you.

So I would suggest holding off for this year, and applying next year.
