Time to start filling those slots for championship weekend. Well, this is an opportunity for both TCU and Oklahoma to get a jump in the playoff polls if either team wins.
With the new set of rankings set to be revealed on Tuesday in primetime, the committee will have the unenviable task of selecting the four most deserving teams after seeing the likes of No.1 Georgia and No.3 Notre Dame get manhandled by the resurgent No.7 Miami Hurricanes and the No.10 Auburn Tigers.
Will Muschamp. Everything's coming up Muschamp, the SC coach whose team clinched a winning season with a 28-20 victory over Florida - the same Florida that fired him three years ago, has already discarded his successor and is buried in a 3-6 dumpster fire of a season.
The seventh team in Wisconsin, the champs of the Big Ten West that the Buckeyes would have to beat to remain in the playoff conversation.
Wisconsin (9-0): The Badgers are unbeaten, but also hamstrung by a weak non-conference schedule and playing in the Big Ten's weaker division (and not facing Ohio State, Penn State or Michigan State in cross-division games). The Spartans would especially be in great shape.
While this isn't a matchup of top-25 teams, it's impossible to overlook the implications of another key ACC showdown between Florida State and Clemson. This week they will entertain Iowa, which is on a high coming off the Ohio State win.
You'd say that Ohio State's out of the College Football Playoff chase, but crazier things have happened.
Jack Wilshere NOT a Crystal Palace target, says Roy Hodgson
Gareth Southgate has told Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger that Jack Wilshere's best position is as a number 10. England play Germany at Wembley on 10 November and face another home game against Brazil on 14 November.
Eminem Releases "Walk On Water" Featuring Beyonce
Promos for the new album have been popping up all over the place in the form of advertisements for fake drug Revival . You can catch Beyoncé's powerful voice blessing you in the chorus of " Walk on Water ".
AT&T may have to dump CNN to get Time Warner deal approved
The DOJ should forget about CNN and reject the merger to prevent further consolidation of media power. Unfortunately, despite Trump's rhetoric on the stump, he has not held to that view as president.
Army. The 21-16 win against Duke moved Army to 8-2, the program's best record through 10 games since 1996. Notre Dame has already locked in signature wins over USC and NC State but they can't afford to take a step back this week with a loss to Miami.
If the Buckeyes do that, and finish 11-2, who would they be competing against for the last playoff spot? The door remains ajar for a few teams to lock themselves into one of those coveted final four positions.
It's a bit of a knee-jerk reaction, but the Hurricanes were dominant on both sides in a 41-8 blowout against Notre Dame that brought back shades of "The U".
The Big 12 Game of the Year features No. 5 Oklahoma and new Heisman Trophy betting favorite Baker Mayfield hosting No. 6 TCU. A two-loss team making the playoff is seeming like a more realistic possibility all the time.
263 - Combined average yards rushing per game for Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi State and Auburn. Which four teams do you think ultimately rise to the top?
378 - Yards passing allowed per game by UConn, worst in the nation. With an O-line like the Fighting Irish, it's no wonder their rushing attack led by running back Josh Adams, who averages eight yards a carry this season and their quarterback Brandon Wimbush, who has 639 rushing yards, is ranked third nationally in the running game. No. 4 Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl. That would be one of the more impressive late-season runs in recent memory.
