Clemson, Auburn move into the top two

Clemson, Auburn move into the top two

No. 2 Auburn (10-2), No. 3 Oklahoma (11-1), No. 4 Wisconsin (12-0), No. 5 Alabama (11-1) and No. 6 Georgia (11-1) are all ahead of Miami. Things began Friday with No. 2 Miami's loss at Pitt and continued Saturday afternoon when No. 6 Auburn pulled off the upset of No. 1 Alabama.

The No. 8 Ohio State Buckeyes and No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers will meet on Saturday in the Big Ten Championship in Indianapolis. There are not enough earths in the multiverse to comprehend a world in which an undefeated Big Ten champion would not be included in a four-team College Football Playoff, no matter what you think about Wisconsin (and by the way, they're pretty good). Though they didn't earn a Big Ten championship game berth, they matched the best single-season turnaround in wins in program history. If TCU beats Oklahoma in the Big 12 title game, it's almost unfathomable that the Horned Frogs move all the way up from No. 11.

The final rankings will be revealed at 11 a.m. on Sunday on ESPN. They lost to Auburn rather handedly and, more importantly, late in the season.

Oklahoma and Wisconsin control their own playoff destiny, but the same can't be said for their conference championship opponents. For just the second time in the history of the AP poll, there will be four games matching top-10 teams in one regular-season weekend.

Does the committee hate UCF, the American Athletic Conference and Group of Five teams in general?

Alabama fans need to root for TCU and Ohio State to win their respective conferences. It's 11-1 with a win at Ohio State and an outright lead in the round-robin Big 12 standings. Michigan State (9-3), 17. Unfortunately, we get a little caught up in the madness sometimes and lose sight of the game itself.

A win on Saturday would likely vault either the Trojans or Horned Frogs over Penn State.

Schiano to be named Tennessee Vols Head Coach
Schiano, 51, has spent the past two seasons as Urban Meyer's assistant head coach and defensive coordinator. Greg Schiano is reportedly "close" to finalizing a deal to become the new Tennessee head football coach .

If Oklahoma wins, it's in.

No. 10 USC and No. 11 TCU are still hoping to be a part of the conversation.

.

The only way Alabama could get in over Ohio State, because it's not going to on paper, is if the committee just said - the coaches in the room looked around and said, "I wouldn't want to play them". First off, the No. 1 team gets to play in the national semifinal closer to home, which means any East Coast No. 2 team has to haul itself to Pasadena, Calif., to play in the Rose Bowl.

No. 2 Oklahoma (minus 7) vs. The Huskies entered last week's Apple Cup ranked 17th, four spots behind rival Washington State, but Washington's decisive 41-14 victory lifted the Huskies to No. 13 and dropped the Cougars to No. 18.

The next highest-ranked team available is No. 6 Georgia, which makes sense for the nearby Peach Bowl in Atlanta.

The Orange Bowl matches the top non-playoff team from the ACC against the top non-playoff team from the Big Ten, SEC and Notre Dame.
