Week 11's best top-10 showdown?

Week 11's best top-10 showdown?

Breaking down the highlights and lowlights from Saturday's college football action ...

That's one way to look at the Buckeyes' impressive Saturday. And the Badgers, if they take care of business against MI and whoever emerges in the I-got-it-you-take-it Big Ten East (most likely Ohio State), will secure a berth in the playoff.

Notre Dame has played a hard schedule and has quality wins over USC, North Carolina State and Michigan State. The Trojans have the best chance of the bunch, but it's a thin chance given their loss to Notre Dame. The rebuttal to the rebuttal: If there's enough carnage in the next couple weeks, yes. Can Auburn really knock off Alabama, then knock off Georgia again?

We're down to four unbeaten teams out of 130 at the FBS level, and three of them (Alabama, Miami and Wisconsin) are all ranked incredibly high. Even with road losses to Clemson and Louisiana State, they could be semifinal material. The Frogs will leapfrog Oklahoma and possibly others if they can come out of Norman with a win. Top 10 matchups and 49 games overall. Quarterback Malik Rosier completed 15 of 24 throws for 137 yards and a score, with the ground game accumulating 237 yards and three touchdowns.

After Iowa put a beatdown on Ohio State, who knows how this game is going to end up.

Roy Moore vehemently denies sexual misconduct
Jerry Moore said , "he knows. that the allegations against Roy Moore are not true, not true at all", Savidge reported . The allegations against Moore - which he has denied - have prompted other Republicans to weigh in.

Auburn (7-2): Yes, Auburn can still make the playoff with two losses.

No. 3 Notre Dame, a pseudo-ACC member, visits No. 7 Miami in the biggest game between those once-bitter rivals since 1988, with the Irish as 3-point favorites this time. But its early-season Auburn win looks that much better now following the Tigers' rout of 9-0 Georgia. That number shrinks in Big Ten play down to 5.5 points, so taking the Spartans makes all the sense in the world. The Badgers slip a spot despite beating Iowa handily. This was the best win the Badgers have had this year.

Oklahoma is in if it wins its final two regular-season games and prevails in the Big 12 Championship. Don't count on it. Clemson is basically locked in on a five-game tournament at this point. Thanks to Virginia's loss at Louisville, Miami also claimed the Coastal Division title. If they lose they are out because they are an independent team and can't win a conference championship. It's how they fell, trailing by 30 before scoring a garbage time touchdown at Auburn. The Bulldogs will be pointing to their 20-19 victory over Notre Dame (more on them later) in Week 2 as evidence of being up to the task, but the Tigers and the hostile environment on Saturday afternoon will be the test Kirby Smart's squad needs in order to have that second blue-chip win on their resume.

Four years after the "Prayer at Jordan-Hare", this remains one of the premier SEC East-SEC West games on the college football schedule, and with good reason.

The Pac-12 champ: That conference title game will be USC against either Washington State, Stanford or Washington. A run-of-the-mill loss to Minnesota really wouldn't have registered today. Washington's defense has not allowed a run of 50 yards. Expecting Nebraska to full recapture its Bob Devaney/Tom Osborne glory days is unrealistic.
