Tuesday will see the release of the first College Football Playoff bracket, and assuming the CFP committee follows the current AP Top 25 poll, No. 2 Michigan would get No. 4 Washington and No. 1 Alabama would meet back up with No. 3 Clemson in the semifinal round. Both games would constitute must-watch television.
Week 9 saw the collapse of four undefeated teams as Boise State, Baylor, Nebraska and West Virginia all crumbled. Nebraska's L is perhaps the least egregious of the lot, inasmuch as No. 8 Wisconsin remains a potent football team. No. 17 Western Michigan is still undefeated -- though the Broncos had a bye this week -- and they'll put their 8-0 record on the line Tuesday night against Ball State. #MACTION BABY.
No. 10 Florida and No. 11 Auburn both jumped four spots this week after grueling wins over Georgia and [REDACTED], respectively. Washington State enters the AP Top 25 for the first time all season after a wild hair raiser win over Oregon State in Corvallis. COUGARS WANT BAMA, Y'ALL.
