We have a really hard time seeing Alabama fall all the way to No. 5 no matter what Clemson, Notre Dame or MI do down the stretch. UCF moved ahead of West Virginia (which dropped to No. 13 after losing at Oklahoma State) and leapfrogged Ohio State.
I'm sure you're at home wondering that with the final weekend of the season coming up what games you should watch this weekend and which games hold more weight than the others. Or maybe both will be left out. Florida 12. Penn State 13.
The Buckeyes could very well jump UCF next week, however. While the Knights still have no real shot at making the four-team playoff given the number of teams ahead of them, simply moving ahead of Ohio State is a big step for those who believe that UCF has been disrespected compared to brand-name programs like Ohio State.
Some huge games highlight the rivalry week college football card, but many teams are not in the conference or CFB playoff championship chase.

Northwestern (7-4) of the Big Ten and Utah (8-3) of the Pac-12 have also clinched spots in their respective conference championship game, and Texas (8-3) could do the same in the Big 12 on Friday by beating Kansas . Should Texas win again, the Big 12 likely would be eliminated from consideration because the Longhorns have three losses.
Until Saturday, there wasn't much if any comparison between Ohio State and Oklahoma. No. 7 LSU held off off No. 8 Washington State for another week, while No. 9 Central Florida and No. 10 Ohio State rounded out the top 10. Oklahoma's 97.1 offensive efficiency would be the highest in the 14-year history of the metric (edging last year's Sooners). At that point, wouldn't the committee have to give UCF a chance?
Oklahoma has surrendered at least 40 points in four straight games - and still won all of them.
