There won’t be a lot of movement in the top 3. Slots #8 is another story.
A little slow start with Western Carolina isn’t the major concern here. The injuries are. Iron Bowl is next.
Remaining games: Auburn
Civil War game this weekend then Pac-12 Championship. Of the top 3, Oregon’s position looks the most solid.
Remaining games: at Oregon State
3. Florida State
Another week, another game they look horrible and unfocused until the 3rd quarter. Winston continues to amaze – both in good ways and bad.
Remaining games: Florida
4. Mississippi State
TCU, Baylor, and Ohio State are closing the gap. Ole Miss losing this week didn’t help.
Remaining games: at Ole Miss
On Deck: The Next 4
If the Kansas game didn’t drop them, I’m not sure what will. Baylor winning out?
Remaining games: @Texas, Iowa State
Not a particularly strong showing against Indiana. For them to make CFP, they are going to need major help.
Remaining games: Michigan
They have a chance to move up with a win against K-State. They need some help though.
Remaining games: at Texas Tech, Kansas State
With the shutout loss at Arkansas, Ole miss leaves a huge hole here. There are 8 2-loss teams that could argue for the #8 position. This year that means very little but in years to come I believe this will be the last playoff spot.
The debate here is between Georgia and Michigan State. UCLA’s win over USC is the difference…for now. They beat Stanford, they get a rematch with Oregon in Pac-12 Championship.
Remaining games: Stanford
Throw your picks in the mix. Love to hear from you.
