  • Texas sneaks into top 15 in latest College Football Playoff rankings

Coming off a hard-fought 48-47 Bedlam win over Oklahoma State, the struggling Oklahoma defense was much talked about by the college football pundits.

Big Ten West champion Northwestern earned the No. 22 spot after being unranked last week.

The College Football Playoff rankings held steady at the top, with Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and MI an unchanged first four from last week.

Four ESPN reporters have chose to pick No. 12 Syracuse to upset No. 3 Notre Dame in NY, as the game is being played at Yankee Stadium. The stain of that blowout loss at Purdue won't come off easy, though, and choosing between Ohio State at 12-1 and Oklahoma at 12-1 or West Virginia at 11-1 or Washington State at 12-1 won't be such an easy chore for the committee. Every team inside the top 10 won and only Oklahoma, which hosted rival Oklahoma State, had a game that was close on the scoreboard. The night slate features a couple of intriguing games, including Cincinnati at UCF, Arizona at Washington State, San Diego State-Fresno State and Iowa State at Texas.

The Allstate Sugar Bowl is also a contract bowl, which is guaranteed the Big 12 champ and the SEC champ.

Fair warning: If you're a BC and/or Boston Red Sox fan - or if you just hate Notre Dame and/or the Yankees - this will make you want to hurl.
