Week 11 2016 NCAA College Football Power Rankings

Well, if they beat LSU, FSU, and Alabama all away from home I don't know how you'd keep them out.

Three non-Power five conferences are represented. But when the Panthers have made stops, they have won big games. If you ask me - based on the eye test - those teams are Alabama, Ohio State and Louisville. The conference is getting a playoff spot. Does the Big Ten get two in the playoff? Of course, these seedings mean nothing in the middle of November, and they'll be facing each other in the last game of the regular season.

We're about to find out. Yet on the same weekend Pac-12, Big Ten, and Big 12 teams will play rivalry games and other crucial matchups, SEC teams will feast on non-conference cupcakes and directionals like Alabama A&M, Texas San Antonio, Louisiana-Lafayette, Austin Peay, Western Carolina and the afore-mentioned Chattanooga.

Stanford will be gunning for its seventh straight Big Game victory. The Bulldogs never had a chance. If they come out victorious, they could win the Big 12, but they have to play Baylor and Iowa State. There was a lot of chaos last week, but how much did it really change the postseason picture?

Penn State should be commended for beating No. 2 Ohio State, 24-21. The 24-21 defeat against the Nittany Lions on October 22 could ultimately be very haunting.

That means Ohio State and MI won't even appear in the Big Ten title game, let alone win the conference. Trailing right behind is the Ohio State Buckeyes, despite losing control of their own destiny when MI lost to Iowa on Saturday. A MI loss against either IN or Ohio State coupled with Penn State winning its final two games of the season would send the Nittany Lions to the championship game IN Indianapolis against Wisconsin. He went for the first down that would have clinched the game. You know things are particularly bad when a Michigan State team who inexplicably lost to IL belts the stuffing out of you. The Tigers and Huskies both lost at home for their first losses of the season.

Those sullied teams cascaded down to No. 4, No. 5 and No. 7 respectively. They have two games left, and they're tough ones. IN will be coming to town with a high-powered offense and a defense full of ball-hawks and aggressive defensive lineman.

Next up: Ahead of its final conference game of the year, Virginia Tech must travel to South Bend this weekend for a showdown with a 4-6 Notre Dame team that is desperate to remain in contention for postseason play. However, because Clemson beat division rival and fellow playoff contender Louisville, they have an inside track to the ACC Championship Game and, barring any shenanigans against Wake Forest or SC, should cruise into Orlando with just one loss. Clemson's gonna go to Orlando and potentially win the ACC ...

The 33-year-old California native went 2-2 with a 4.43 ERA in 62 games last season for Toronto and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Here's the test: Ohio State is No. 2 in the rankings, which were unveiled Tuesday. There has been enough unexpected results to illustrate how much can change each week and nearly certainly will by December 4 when the final playoff field of four is set one day after the conclusion of the regular season.

This next game will present a challenge, as reports have surfaced - including one by Wolverine247 - that redshirt sophomore Wilton Speight is unlikely to play on Saturday, as he has an undisclosed upper body injury. If anything sets Ohio State apart from the rest, at least defensively, it's the secondary and punter Cameron Johnston. That should put Jim Harbaugh in a great mood for the recruiting grind.

Howard was hurt while making a goal kick in the first half of Friday's 2-1 loss to Mexico at Columbus, Ohio, and was replaced by Brad Guzan in the 40th minute.

Heisman front-runner Lamar Jackson threw for a season-low 145 yards and for the first time all season, failed to complete a pass of 25 yards or longer.

Rutgers: in losses to the trio of teams who are generally (but not necessarily this season) considered to be the big three of the Big Ten conference - Michigan, Ohio State and Michigan State - the Scarlet Knights have lost by a combined 185-0. Getting a amusing feeling about the Buckeyes, like there's some destiny in play. Nick Saban's Alabama army of death continued its march with a 51-3 throttling of Mississippi State, but the plot thickens after the #1 team in the College Football Playoff Rankings.
