The Top 5 Heading Into The Weekend

  • College Football Picks Against the Spread Trust Michigan State With Your Life

The Bulldogs have already clinched the East, practically lapping the field. But just like Ohio State in 2014, what if the early year is the right year for Miami? The Spartans would especially be in great shape.

It took back-to-back wins against top-25 opponents to finally certify the statement, but Miami is back - and in the national title hunt.

Additionally, you saw No.5 Oklahoma outlast No.6 TCU, No.8 Wisconsin crush No.20 Iowa and an unranked Stanford Cardinal squad upset visiting No.9 Washington.

Pac-12 - No. 15 Southern California can lock up the Pac-12 South with a victory at Colorado or losses by Arizona and Arizona State.

Aside from the division races, things to know about Week 11 of the college football season - another week with seven games matching ranked teams, including three top-10 matchups.

Brady Hoke in as Vols interim head coach
Tennessee last won an SEC championship in 1998, the same year the Vols won the national championship with an unbeaten 13-0 record. Defensive line coach Brady Hoke , the former head coach at MI , will serve as UT's interim coach for the remainder of the season.

Another wild weekend in college football will ultimately turn the playoff rankings inside out come Tuesday night. The Notre Dame versus Miami showdown starts at 8 p.m. If the Buckeyes run the table in impressive fashion, the hunch here is that they'll end up in the playoff.

Miami has the nation's longest winning streak at 13 games, and has not lost since falling to Notre Dame last season. It's a Heisman favorite in Mayfield squaring off against the only defense in the conference that looks like it might actually have a solution for him. That Week 2 win over Auburn looks better and better all the time. But this Michigan State blowout may vault Ohio State past USC in the rankings this week.

50 - Love leads the country with 10 runs of at least 50 yards. Kenny Hill has settled in nicely in Fort Worth after transferring from Texas A&M, already reaching the 2,000 yard mark on the season, while being backed by the sixth-ranked scoring defense in the nation.

Alabama is obviously in if it wins out and a strong case can be made that the Crimson Tide - should it go into the SEC Championship game unblemished - will be in even if it loses to Georgia in the SEC Championship game. Wisconsin has more to lose than to gain compared to the Hawkeyes, who don't have that much to play for. Both rushed for a combine of 1,577 yards and 18 touchdowns.

The Tigers (4-5) have won three straight after a five-game losing streak and have a good chance to get to bowl eligibility with games at Vanderbilt and Arkansas after facing the struggling Volunteers.
