While Alabama performed a ranked foe in No. 19 LSU and Georgia performed unranked South Carolina, nothing in both recreation stood out a lot as to make the committee rethink its resolution to grant Georgia high billing.
No recreation was crazier than No. 5 Oklahoma’s 62-52 street win over No. 11 Oklahoma State. The two groups mixed for 1,446 yards of whole offense, 62 first downs, 15 offensive touchdowns and there was in some way time for 5 turnovers.

It was a nasty week for the heavyweights from the Big Ten. Both Ohio State and Penn State misplaced on Saturday, every week after the previous beat the latter 39-38 in a mbadively entertaining rivalry recreation. The Nittany Lions dropped a squeaker to No. 24 Michigan State on Saturday, whereas the Buckeyes fell in actually surprising vogue, 55-24 to the unranked Iowa Hawkeyes.

With the Buckeyes and Penn State now every holding two losses, their playoff hopes are seemingly over. Every crew forward of them within the rankings gained, and the likes of undefeated Wisconsin and Miami ought to cross them within the standings, in addition to Eight-1 Texas Christian.
CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm famous Wisconsin is the most effective hope for the Big Ten to maintain a crew within the College Football Playoff however mentioned the Badgers should keep excellent to take action:
“I still believe the Badgers have to be undefeated to get that spot, and like Florida State in 2014, would be seeded behind at least one one-loss team. That year, the Seminoles were the only major-conference unbeaten team but were seeded third because of a weak schedule. I will not believe that the CFP Selection Committee will leave out an undefeated, major conference team until it actually does it. If Wisconsin does not win the Big Ten title at 13-0, then the league will likely get shut out of the playoff for the first time in its brief history.”
Miami is flirting across the edges of the playoff image, however the Hurricanes can maybe take an enormous leap ahead subsequent week as they tackle Notre Dame. The ‘Canes are one in every of solely 5 undefeated groups remaining within the top-25—Central Florida deserves observe for placing collectively a unbelievable season after years of dismal play—and a win over Notre Dame would make issues particularly powerful on the CFP choice committee.

“It was a little sloppy, but the message is a win’s a win,” offensive lineman Mike McGlinchey mentioned, per the Chicago Tribune‘s LaMond Pope. “We have a good thing going here right now and we have to make sure we keep it going.”
Miami will nonetheless must see some groups forward of them stumble, however the faculty is lurking and will shake up the rankings with a win in Week 11. ESPN College Gameday will likely be in South Beach for the pivotal contest. It’s one which has main implications for the College Football Playoff because the season will get into the house stretch.
