Team: TCU Horned Frogs (9-1)
Pesky Jayhawks -- and the weather -- make life miserable for the Frogs. We'll see how the selection committee considers closer-than-it-needed-to-be 34-30 win over Kansas.
TCU

Team: Baylor Bears (9-1)
Spent the bye week spent sending fruit baskets to selection committee. Third-softest schedule strength among Power 5 schools at the moment.
BAYLOR

Team: Mississippi State Bulldogs (10-1)
Dak to the Stone Age. Fade to Dak. To hell and Dak. Say goodbye to the Heisman Trophy, the No. 1 ranking and perhaps a playoff spot.

(1)
Team: Florida State Seminoles (11-0)
Slipped from No. 3 in total defense last season to No. 58 this season. Who cares? It scares the poo out of their fans, having to come back in five games this season, but might as well own it
FSU

Team: Alabama Crimson Tide (10-1)
The Tide are officially good. We just had to wait a while. A schedule that was incredibly backloaded revealed the true Tide in a grinding win over Mississippi State.
BAMA

Team: Oregon Ducks (10-1)
Slipped from No. 3 in total defense last season to No. 58 this season. Who cares? The Seminoles have an identity. It scares the poo out of their fans, having to come back in five games this season, but might as well own it.

Team: Ohio State Buckeyes (10-1)
The only person who didn't like Saturday's result is Braxton Miller. J.T. Barrett went for 389 yards in total offense against Minnesota, breaking three of Miller's school records.
OHIOST

Team: Ole Miss Rebels (8-3)
All-America teams are starting to be assembled. You could do worse than consider Robert Nkemdiche for the Outland Trophy.
MISS

(5)
Team: Georgia Bulldogs (9-2)
Return of Todd Gurley is followed by a troubling exit of Todd Gurley (sore left knee). That was the only downer on a day Nick Chubb and Gurley combined for 282 rushing yards against Auburn.
UGA

Team: Michigan State Spartans (9-2)
It had to kill Coach D to watch his team get manhandled by the Ohio State. Nice bounce back by the Spartans who did some manhandling over their own against Maryland.
MICHST

(4)
Team: Marshall Thundering Herd (11-0)
Bad schedule strength? Rice had won six in a row by an average of 16 points before losing to the Herd 41-14. How can the selection committee keep ignoring these guys?
MRSHL

(3)
Team: UCLA Bruins (9-2)
The Bruins are cool again, the same place they started the season. Battle of LA vs. USC looms Nov. 22 at the Rose Bowl.
UCLA

Team: Arizona State Sun Devils (9-2)
Just when you thought you could believe in the Sun Devils, they cough up a hairball at Oregon State. Bye-bye playoff contention.

Team: Kansas State Wildcats (8-2)
Big ol' game Nov. 20. Thursday nighter against West Virginia. Wildcats still have an outside shot at a New Year's Six bowl.
KSTATE

(10)
Team: Wisconsin Badgers (9-2)
After beating the dog out of Nebraska, Melvin Gordon punched his ticket to New York. Wisconsin has inside track to win the Big Ten West.
WISC

(6)
Team: Arizona Wildcats (9-2)
Bad idea by Washington coach Chris Petersen to freeze Casey Skowron. He went wide right on the first try, then came back and nailed a 47-yarder as time expired to beat the Huskies 27-26.
ARIZ

Team: Duke Blue Devils (8-3)
Boy, that has to sting. Duke had six turnovers all season. Then three given to Virginia Tech allowed the Hokies to score all the points they needed in a 17-16 upset.
DUKE

Team: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (9-2)
Lots of ACC buzz for the Yellow Jackets, who have won four in a row by a combined 104 points.
GATECH

(3)
Team: Missouri Tigers (9-2)
Tigers scored more points in the third quarter (28) against Texas A&M than they had in five other games. Maty Mauk has his first 200-yard passing game of 2014.
MIZZOU

Team: Nebraska Cornhuskers (8-3)
For the 581st time we thought that the Huskers had turned some sort of corner. Instead, Wisconsin ran for 581 yards and scored 59 consecutive points.
NEB

(-8)
Team: Auburn Tigers (8-3)
Three losses in the past five games. That's life in the SEC West. Gus Malzahn needs help on defense.
AUBURN

Team: Oklahoma Sooners (8-3)
Rebounds after loss to Baylor by scoring 42 points on Texas Tech.

Team: Utah Utes (7-4)
Defensive end Nate Orchard had four more sacks to set the school season record (16.5). Utes have beaten USC, UCLA and Stanford and lost to Washington State.
