The Top 5 Heading Into The Weekend

ClemsonKelly Bryant's health lends enough confidence in the Tigers offense to score 24 points a week and that may be all they need to win out, including in the conference title game versus Miami.

In the SEC, top-ranked Georgia will look to fight off their oldest rival in No. 10 Auburn, while Big 12 supremacy will be on the line when No. 5 Oklahoma hosts No. 6 TCU. The Bulldogs have already clinched the East, practically lapping the field. Ohio State is No. 13 now. The Spartans would especially be in great shape. The Coastal leader No. 7 Miami has a nonconference game against No. 3 Notre Dame, but the Hurricanes can still the division if Virginia Tech (at Georgia Tech) and Virginia (at Louisville) lose. The undefeated Hurricanes have been slowly working their way up the various college football rankings - be they AP Top 25, Coaches Poll or College Football Playoff Rankings - but no one seemed ready to sign off on this year's group as being anything more than being a threat in the ACC Coastal Division and "one year away" from something really special. Top 10 matchups and 49 games overall.

Notre Dame: The Fighting Irish have two losses, and with no conference title game and that blowout against Miami, their case has lessened significantly. Still, the Tigers have an upcoming schedule that would give the Playoff committee something to think about if they were to win out. If the Buckeyes run the table in impressive fashion, the hunch here is that they'll end up in the playoff.

Auburn AthleticsAuburn put themselves on a playoff path with a dominant win over Georgia Saturday. The Sooners' much-maligned defense also played well, and star quarterback Baker Mayfield is cruising to the Heisman Trophy. Penn State is still lurking, but it still needs help. Auburn is a team that's hard to figure out but might be the best 7-2 team that no one is talking about. Kenny Hill has settled in nicely in Fort Worth after transferring from Texas A&M, already reaching the 2,000 yard mark on the season, while being backed by the sixth-ranked scoring defense in the nation. Mississippi State made it as hard as possible for the Tide on Saturday, but QB Jalen Hurts came through huge on a game-winning drive. Who are the four most deserving teams as of right now?

378 - Yards passing allowed per game by UConn, worst in the nation. With at least 318 yards on the ground in each of their last five games and a whopping 34 rushing touchdowns on the season, the Irish are in an undeniable rhythm.
