    You are correct - I totally blanked on Oklahoma. Jalen Hurts seems to be fitting in very nicely there. Wonder if Riley can get a third straight QB to win the Heisman. I would expect one (if not two), of the SEC teams to be out of the mix come playoff time.

    Not a lot of big matchups this weekend - looks like Uva v. Notre Dame is the cream of the crop. Other than that, looks like a bunch of games for Heisman hopefuls to get fat on.

    The Tar Heels come within a two point conversion of knocking off Clemson in Chapel Hill. I honestly thought they had it - they played Clemson extremely tough the entire way!

    Some top 25 matchups this weekend - Michigan State/Ohio State and than the big one - Auburn v. Florida at The Swamp. Have to assume that whichever one loses that game is out of the national title hunt.

    Saw that Florida whupped up pretty good on Auburn. Seems like this might be just another year in which the SEC is perceived as really, really good, but in reality, the teams are all just average and their pre-season rankings keep them looking pretty in the polls.

    Will have to wait and see how it all plays out towards the conference championships.

    The Buckeyes are still going strong. Maybe this year it will be no holds barred and they will not take any teams for granted. The match up with Wisconsin will be the biggest test. If they win that game then it should be home free to the final four.

    I would agree with that assessment. If Wisconsin or Ohio State (or I guess Penn State) can win the Big Ten championship as an undefeated champion, they are going to the playoff. I saw most of the Michigan/Wisconsin game - and UW looked extremely good. Should be interesting to see how it plays out!

    USC/Notre Dame.
    Florida/LSU

    As always curious to see who stays afloat in the battle for the football playoffs.

    Notre dame losing to Georgia last week most likely knocked them out. And Georgia losing to South Carolina was a huge blow to them. I think that Alabama and Clemson are locks even if they lose 1 game. If Ohio State and Oklahoma run the table then it is probably a forgone conclusion that those 4 team will be in. I just hope that Alabama or Clemson lose so Ohio State can avoid one of them in the first playoff game.

    Well Clemson just dropped to 3, after dropping to 2 the previous week - guess only Alabama gets the love for being defending champion and staying undefeated and #1.... Big jump for LSU all the way up to #2. Don't think Georgia has a shot at the playoffs anymore, right along with Notre Dame. If Clemson loses, they are done - they need to be undefeated and win the ACC Title game. The SEC still needs to knock each other out as games progress, Alabama in the drivers seat. If Oklahoma & Ohio State both go undefeated and win their conference title games - The Final Four will be Oklahoma/Ohio State/Clemson/SEC Conference Title game winner. If there are 3 undefeated Big 5 conference winners, the SEC representative will have to be the conference title game winner. In this scenario, don't think a 1 loss SEC team that doesn't make the title game gets into the playoffs.

    Just trying to keep things straight in my head. Clemson is the defending national champion, they were ranked either #1 or #2 (depending on who you asked) to start the season, they are still undefeated, and yet, they have dropped a spot in the rankings for the past 3 weeks and are now standing at #4???? Just shows how much respect everyone not named Saban/Alabama gets!!

    Huge upset with Illinois beating Wisconsin - pretty much takes the Badgers out of the national title hunt. Penn State...or Ohio State coming out of the Big Ten.

    Let's see if the Wisconsin loss to Illinois was a fluke, or if they are done -- matchup with Ohio State is huge.

    Notre Dame/Michigan -- can Harbaugh win a signature game????? Sounds like the folks in Ann Arbor don't care, they are happy with him regardless....

    Ohio State took care of business against Wisconsin. The Buckeyes seem to be playing about 5 times faster than their opponents. Maryland next week and Rutgers ( I think) the week after that. I would not be surprised to see the spread approach 50 in either or both of those games. This looks like the best team they have had since Elliott and Bosa were there when they won it all.

    Ohio State did destroy Wisconsin - Looks like it will be Penn State/Ohio State winner as the favorite to represent the Big Ten in the playoffs. Speaking of destroying, Michigan put a whuppin' on Notre Dame, which will effectively remove any thoughts the Irish had of the playoffs.

    Oklahoma was a 24 point favorite heading to Kansas State, they came out a 7 point loser and they can kiss the playoffs goodbye.

    How many more upsets are we going to see this year. LSU/Alabama is looming - with LSU as the new #1 team AND the Heisman hopeful with the best odds to win.

    Thinking the top 4 will remain the same this week - Clemson/LSU/Alabama/Ohio State. Oregon and Penn State knocking on the door.

    LSU v. Alabama on Saturday, so one of them will be gone....

    Penn State has to go to undefeated Minnesota, will see how that one plays out.

    FSU fires Willie Taggart after less than 2 seasons, all it cost was a $17 million buyout. Where do I sign up for the jobs that pay me that kind of $$ to go away for being horrible at what I do????
