The Top 5 Heading Into The Weekend

13 November 2017

Don't get caught up in the specifics of the rankings, but just figure the teams that will be ranked ahead of the Buckeyes in the College Football Playoff rankings on Tuesday. The undefeated Hurricanes have been slowly working their way up the various college football rankings - be they AP Top 25, Coaches Poll or College Football Playoff Rankings - but no one seemed ready to sign off on this year's group as being anything more than being a threat in the ACC Coastal Division and "one year away" from something really special. The Notre Dame versus Miami showdown starts at 8 p.m.

This is the weekend Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield can put the Heisman Trophy in a headlock or open the door for another contender. Auburn is a team that's hard to figure out but might be the best 7-2 team that no one is talking about. Wisconsin has more to lose than to gain compared to the Hawkeyes, who don't have that much to play for. If you're not familiar with it, you probably might want to look up the background.

Four years after the "Prayer at Jordan-Hare", this remains one of the premier SEC East-SEC West games on the college football schedule, and with good reason.

Her Twitter has also been overflowing with tweets and retweets about her new album, Reputation in a bid to promote her work. She even chose not to host her annual Fourth of July bash in Rhode Island, much to the disappointment of the Swifties.

But what matters is that we're talking about a two-loss conference champion in the playoff mix. Now, the challenge for Mark Richt will be not to lose focus the next two weeks against Virginia and Pittsburgh.

Auburn, with wins in its final two regular-season games and in the SEC Championship game over Georgia, will get in. No conference title game hurts, however, as does dropping both their matchups versus top opponents (Georgia, Miami). 7.

Here is how to live stream Georgia versus Auburn and Notre Dame versus Miami. The Huskies face No. 14 UCF, the No. 1 scoring team in the country (48.5 points per game) and averaging 325.5 yards passing per game. Notre Dame has struggled mightily down the stretch in their last few seasons but this team is playing with an edge that few Irish teams have had of recent. But there is something about these TCU Horned Frogs that makes them one of the toughest outs in college football year after year. In his two games there since, Patterson has lost two heartbreakers by a combined four points, so he will be looking to exact a score against the Sooners. They too inexplicably fell victim to the three-loss Iowa State Cyclones, yet that remains the only blemish on their record late in the season. Figure the victor there for one playoff spot. It's all lining up in the right direction for the Sooners.
