The guys talk rankings and if the Committee is breaking its own rules by moving UCF up? Is this a random off year for Rivalry Weekend in that not nearly as many games seem as interesting or important? What chance do Bama, Clemson, Notre Dame or Georgia have at being upset? The three games that matter, however, should be epic: The Apple Cup, Oklahoma-WVU and The Game. What about the division title games in the Group of 5? And the guys compare Thanksgiving side items to recruits.

Congrats to Pitt and Utah for clinching division titles and earning a trip to a conference championship game! One team was eliminated from the Playoff in the Big 12 while another (basically) clinched a spot in the title game after a big weekend in the Heartland. Notre Dame was incredibly impressive while Ohio State was not. What do we make of the Les Miles hiring and Clay Helton's chances of survival at USC?

In a mild weekend of college football, focus on the Pac-12 South race as Utah, Arizona State and Arizona are still battling, the Notre Dame-Syracuse match in Yankee Stadium and two huge matchups in the Big 12 that dictate who owns the championship tie-breakers. And LOTS of Group of 5 championship action as well!

A relatively boring weekend at the top of college football featured one elite game in the state of Oklahoma. Was going for the two the right call for the Pokes? And the underbelly of college football featured big wins for Northwestern, Pitt, Arizona St, Utah, Iowa St and Texas as all are still chasing conference titles (yes, you read that right).

Did LSU teach us anything about how to beat Alabama? Is Clemson closer to Alabama than we think? Who is else balanced enough to challenge Alabama? Additionally, how good was the WVU-Texas finish, can OU's defense win them a championship and is there something wrong at Ohio State? And, oh yeah, Michigan vs. Notre Dame could be the toughest committee decision of the playoff era.
