The college football weekend in review
The conferences are beginning to sort themselves out, but the four College Football Playoff spots are still very much up for grabs.
Several top-ten teams went down to the wire last week. Which teams impressed in narrow victories and who was exposed?
Another undefeated team fell, expanding the list of one-loss teams and making things even more difficult for the Playoff Selection Committee.
Notre Dame and Baylor entered the one-loss group in what is shaping up to be an extremely tight race for playoff consideration.
Several good teams had close calls, but for the mass of one-loss and undefeated teams, just winning is good enough.
It was a historic weekend for upsets, but don't count any one-loss team out just yet.
Elite running backs have carried their teams this season, from Georgia's Todd Gurley to Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah
The College Football Playoff field narrowed on Saturday. Some teams got upset, some barely escaped an upset, and a few had big record-setting blowouts.
A week after big upsets of Stanford and Ohio State, the USC and Virginia Tech themselves fell to less-talented opponents. Georgia also fell to South Carolina after pummeling Clemson in the opener.
The Big Ten performed to expectations on Saturday, save for the Hokies' defeat of the Buckeyes, but major losses could leave the Big Ten excluded from the first College Football Playoff.
