Upset after upset filled a #college #Football Saturday in Week 11. The loss would become more painful when our next honorable mention lost on Saturday.
After a weekend where three of the top four and five of the top nine teams in the nation lost, everyone is left wondering what the playoff picture might look like right now. Michigan, which was No. 3 last week, held serve in the same spot while Clemson fell from No. 2 to No. 4.
Three teams sitting in playoff positions went down over the weekend as Clemson and MI lost on last-second field goals to Pittsburgh and Iowa while Washington went down to USC. Florida State was No. 17, six spots ahead of Florida. "As you know, conference champion is indeed an explicit factor, but division champion is not". The Cowboys eked out a shootout win against Texas Tech to keep pace with the Big 12 leaders. The Crimson Tide could lose and still make the playoff.
So Ohio State moved up three spots after scoring 62 points for a second consecutive week in a win at Maryland.
The Cardinals' hurdle could be even more hard to clear than the Buckeyes'. The top four teams qualify for the two semifinal games, which will be held at the Fiesta and Peach bowls on December 31. Perhaps the biggest remaining matchup is when Ohio State and MI go head to head November 24th.
The same level of uncertainty does not exist with the future of the Big 12 or the Pac-12.

The two previous seasons don't give much insight.
On Tuesday night, the playoff committee chose to elevate OSU to the second spot in the playoff race with just two weeks remaining on the schedule. Ohio State was fifth and Louisville ranked sixth. That said, if the Buckeyes ended up in the Rose Bowl, Colorado could be their opponent.

And even though MI took its first loss in Iowa City Saturday, the victor of the Wolverines' visit to Ohio State on November 26 will head into that title game likely a win away from the playoff semifinals.

How does that head-to-head win from September compare to the Sooners' league title?
