They jumped four spots in the AP Top 25 to No. 6 and should move from No. 10 up to around Nos. Over the final month of the season, more pundits questioned whether Urban Meyer had lost a grip on his team than whether this team was actually playoff-worthy.

No. 5 Oklahoma remains ahead of No. 6 Ohio State in what had to be the biggest debate of the process this week.

Let's look ahead to this weekend, and their respective conference championship games.

Texas has a better opponent this weekend, while Ohio State has a better chance of impressing with a blowout win.

"Most years, teams are going to have to win the conference to get into the playoff".

But that's a big if, right? Alabama remains firmly in the No. 1 spot with Clemson checking in just below it, which is unsurprising considering both teams once again won in dominant fashion this past Saturday.

Of course, Georgia can mess it all up by beating Alabama and leaving both Oklahoma and Ohio State out as the CFP Selection Committee will not leave the Tide out of the field at this point.

Last season set a precedent, when one-loss non-champion Alabama made it, and ended up winning the national title.

There's one more ranking that should be noted this week, and that's UCF.

"The discussion did turn to UCF outscored South Florida 28-10 with the backup quarterback in there and we're also aware that UCF played with the backup quarterback in the East Carolina game", Mullens said, alluding to Darriel Mack Jr.'s past success leading the Knights during a previous Milton injury.

Several current and former MI players and a one other prominent figure took to social media to react to Bush's big time accomplishments, and WolverinesWire accumulated some of the responses.

The Michigan Wolverines had a clear path to the College Football Playoffs (CFP). Northwestern has not had a game all season with a scoring margin greater than 14 points. "Win our next game, that's our motivation now".

According to multiple WVU sources, their understanding from the Big 12 is that the runner-up of the championship game will always receive the Sugar Bowl bid in the event that the league champion reaches the playoff.

The Cougars are ranked behind four three-loss teams, which could hamper their hopes of earning an at-large berth to a New Year's Six bowl. If UCF loses, the Mountain West victor would more than likely find itself in a New Year's Six game.
