3 in latest 2017 CFB Playoff rankings

It's Rivalry Week! This the week where it is the last week of the regular season, and where College Football Playoff hopes stay alive or die. The 9-2 Irish finish Saturday at No. 21 Stanford, which would be a nice topper, but an Ohio State team that wins this week at MI and finishes with a Big Ten title will have no problem making that particular leapfrog over the Irish.

Miami, who, like Alabama, is unbeaten this season, is up to #2 this week, while Clemson, the defending national champions, drops one spot to #3.

Clemson faces SC, ranked 24th in this week's College Football Playoff poll, this coming Saturday evening in Columbia, SC.

The Tigers and Hurricanes will play each other in the ACC Championship game next week, which could open the door for the Badgers to jump past the loser of that game.

Clemson has a 6-0 record against FBS teams with a winning record. Miami is playing an unranked team. "If Oklahoma wins out, and they're able to win the Big 12 Championship Game - which isn't a foregone conclusion -but if they do, they're fine". He was eager to see where Miami and Clemson, in particular, would be slotted.

No conference has yet to place two teams into the CFP final four, but the ACC and the SEC are inching to that happening. Clemson 4. Oklahoma 5. It seems like they are looking at Clemson winning the championship a year ago, so they don't want Clemson to not be in.

Consider this scenario: Georgia, Clemson and Oklahoma win out and are one-loss league champs. "They don't have to worry about undefeated Wisconsin passing them by".

The committee is not thrilled with the Badgers' schedule, but Wisconsin can get a marquee victory in the Big Ten title game - as long as Ohio State takes care of MI on Saturday. Ohio State will need some help, but it is possible.

Finally, the best for last.

- Alabama doesn't have a resume, he said, if the Crimson Tide lose to Auburn. The victor plays Georgia next week in the SEC Championship game.

Of course if the Gamecocks lose, they will fall back outside the top-25.
