The chase is on as college football teams compete for one of four spots in the College Football Playoff. Who'll get in and who'll miss the cut? Will this week provide any answers?
#24 North Carolina State 24, #17 Louisville 21: NC State has a solid defense going for them, especially with their front four. This group will test Lamar Jackson throughout the game.
#21 Florida 20, LSU 9: It seems that the Florida Gators have made me into a believer (At least for this week). The Gators should handle a dysfunctional LSU squad that has many questions to answer right now.
#8 TCU 42, #23 West Virginia 21: Both offenses are averaging at least 47 points a game and around 500 total yards per game. West Virginia's a strong passing team, while TCU's more of a battle-in-the-trenches team. Darius Anderson may be too much to bear for a Mountaineer squad that yields 226 rushing yards per game.
#7 Michigan 23, Michigan State 10: This game may be closer than anticipated. It's a rivalry game and MSU has been sneaky good so far. Devin Bush may have a big game for the Wolverines on defense, though.
#1 Alabama 49, Texas A&M 17: One thing to keep an eye on in this game is the double-headed rush attack of the Aggies' Trayveon Williams (66 carries, 384 yards, five touchdowns) and Keith Ford (57 carries, 302 yards, seven touchdowns). Can these two give Alabama fits?
