A Wonderful Day for College Football

  • MIAMI GARDENS FL – NOVEMBER 04 Sean Savoy

The team that gets to the championship game will most likely be determined this week when the Spartans travel to Ohio State. What other word fits a team that loses by 31 points one week and then wins by 45 points seven days later? The Big Ten West is not strong, and their out-of-conference opponents aren't strong either. Nobody else can make the playoff at this point, and the challenge for both teams will be not peeking ahead to what could be a fantastic ACC championship game in Charlotte.

Chubb dominated the line of scrimmage in Saturday's win over NC State. North Carolina upset Pitt, NC State beat Boston College, Duke lost to Army, Georgia Tech scored a key win over Virginia Tech to keep its bowl hopes alive, and Wake Forest hit six victories with a 64-43 victory over Syracuse to wrap up the rest of the key action from Week 11 in the ACC. Let's use some common sense: If the Badgers win the next three weeks, taking out MI and the Big Ten East champion (likely Ohio State) along the way, are they getting left out of the playoff at 13-0? But this offense, as good as it gets in the entire Football Bowl Subdivision, gives Oklahoma State a puncher's chance against nearly any team in the country.

They agreed on the top six, and even both had Alabama at No. 1, but the order was different. That would be one of the more impressive late-season runs in recent memory. The victory was also the Gamecocks' first against UF since 2014, when they took their fourth in five tries over the Gators. At the same time, Florida suffered another loss and Nebraska was humiliated by Minnesota. It's good to be the second-year UCF head coach right now. Probably because we reached the 10th week of the season and Saturday's games just get tougher by the minute. Here's an incredible fact about the Cadets: The offense has attempted just one pass in back-to-back wins against Air Force and the Blue Devils.

Miami and Clemson are now destined to meet in the ACC Championship game. Could the Bulldogs still make the playoff as a once-beaten non-conference champion as Ohio State did previous year? Auburn pulled off the first step of their daunting three-step push to make the playoff. We're putting the defending national champions here with the understanding that every game is an elimination game, and the Big Ten champion could get this last spot. Miss. State didn't fare too badly either from the loss, bumping up a spot from last week to No. 17.

Contenders: No team received more help from the chaos more than the Buckeyes, who throttled Michigan State 48-3 and watched five teams ranked ahead of them lose. They absolutely dominated 8-1 Notre Dame, shutting down the Irish's previously powerful rushing attack and forcing four more turnovers. If there's enough tumult elsewhere - and a combination of the Oklahoma-Texas Christian victor taking a loss in the next three weeks, a Notre Dame loss anywhere and Alabama reducing its remaining opposition to rubble - why couldn't it happen?
