SEC Network analysts project updated College Football Playoff rankings

SEC Network analysts project updated College Football Playoff rankings

Notre Dame. The Irish had been right in the thick of the Playoff chase, before the Hurricanes, well, blew them away.

Badgers coach Paul Chryst appears indifferent to the CFP list, not knowing his team's updated rank and not caring that his team is ranked behind four one-loss teams.

Though the Bulldogs remain one of the country's five undefeated programs and sit atop the College Football Playoff rankings, not everyone is sold on their strength of schedule, a problem rarely faced by an SEC football program this late in the season. This week No. 13 Ohio State (rankings from new CFP Top 25) hosts the No. 12 Spartans, and the victor will control its destiny to take the Big Ten East and face unbeaten Wisconsin - now Delany's only playoff hopeful - in the conference championship game.

Wins over Iowa this week and MI could be considered quality wins but the fact is both schools now have two losses and another just lowers their standing. "It's cool. I'm not trying to downplay it. None of it matters until the end".

This game has all you can ask of a a primetime November football game. The Badgers defeated the Wildcats on September 30.

This is the weekend Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield can put the Heisman Trophy in a headlock or open the door for another contender. But about the game, this is the Hurricanes' chance to prove to the doubters and committee that Miami should be in the playoff hunt.

According to reports, Australians who believe they may have had their private photos stolen or shared will contact e-Safety. He said: "It is a bit much having to send a picture of yourself, I'd be anxious that it could get into the wrong hands".

We came so close, to having the top three ranked schools lose, on the same day, for the first time since January 1, 1966. The Hurricanes held the Fighting Irish to just eight points and 261 total yards (4.1 per play) and generated four turnovers. If you're not watching this game right at 8 P.M., choosing instead to start with the matchup in South Beach, you'll have changed the channel soon enough. But the question after the release of Tuesday night's rankings centered on whether the Sooners defense will drag them down.

It might be worth breaking down in the final three weeks. Against TCU last season, he was 23-of-30 for 274 yards and two touchdowns in a win. But as coaches everywhere say, "There's nothing like winning". Alabama would beat LSU 21-0 in the championship game, which makes the committee look a heck of a lot better, but realistically a 12-1 conference champion Oklahoma State team should have received the nod over Alabama. Georgia hasn't won the SEC championship in 12 years, and you have to go back to 1980 to find the Bulldogs' last national title.

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). None of that, however, is a major concern for coach Kirby Smart or his players. In fact, they trampled the Fighting Irish, 41-8. The extra year hasn't hurt McGlinchey's draft stock - he is considered a first-round pick by just about every mock draft online. For example, No. 12 Michigan State hit the road to take on No. 13 Ohio State in a battle for the Big Ten East title and the Buckeyes covered a ridiculous 17-point spread, 48-3. The big question is whether quarterback J.T. Barrett can rebound from last week's horrendous four-interception performance.

TCU (8-1): The Horned Frogs are in basically the same boat as Oklahoma, whom they play on Saturday.

A victory by No. 1 Alabama against No. 18 Mississippi State, plus a loss by No. 10 Auburn to No. 2 Georgia, clinches the SEC West for the Tide. Through this season's second edition of the rankings, with all the teams thus far on the outside looking in, the Big 10-leading Wisconsin Badgers look to the be the leading underdog to make the College Football Playoff this December. Mayfield leads the nation in passing efficiency, completion percentage (71.7), yards per attempt (11.9), and yards per completion (16.5).

Wolford completed 25 of 38 throws for 363 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 136 yards and three scores in Saturday's 64-43 victory over Syracuse.
