If they win outright, and one of the teams in front of them loses, Oklahoma might be able to sneak into the top four.

This despite Iowa falling out of both the AP and Coaches poll this week.

While both MI and Georgia have 3-1 records against ranked teams this season, the maize and blue have gotten their wins in the last three weeks and looked good against Penn State with their only loss being to the team ahead of them. UCF, at 8-0, is behind two teams with two losses already. If that seems like a lot, it is.

Oklahoma has two of its next three games against teams with four or more losses on the season.

A few logistical changes to the college football season are at least a part of the increase. We know the strength of schedule argument for the Tigers.

Alabama has been ranked in the top 5 for 49 straight weeks, the second longest streak to Miami's 55 weeks from October 8, 2000-Oct.

Defense will lead them past Ohio State and now they have a competent quarterback to score on offense. Our Matt Kenerly projected the top 25 and his version has the Aggies on the outside looking in, and the Bulldogs ranked in those projections. The Owls, unfortunately, now hold the nation's longest losing streak spanning eight games. The other, Washington, is buried at No. 25. LSU, though, only dropped to No. 7 after its second loss, ahead of Washington State, West Virginia, and Ohio State - all with only one loss.

The Knights stayed at No. 12 after beating Temple 52-40 last week.

Big Ten - 4 (4, 8, 21, 24).

Mountain West - 2 (14, 16). Utah's stumble leaves the Pac-12 clinging to the Cougars as the last hope for getting a team into this year's semifinals.

#16 Mississippi State plays #1 Alabama this weekend. A second straight ranked opponent for the Tide - if that even matters. With a loss to ACC Atlantic rival Boston College on Saturday, Clemson would be at risk of being shut out of the conference title game.

As little faith as I have in the Spartans, their defense has been enough to win some big games. A week after completely blanking LSU, Alabama limits Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald to under 200 yards of total offense on its way to covering in nearly 60 percent of simulations. The Buckeyes have become college football's biggest soap opera.
