What is Ohio State's path to the College Football Playoff?

The Biggest Threats College Football Contenders Still Face

Ohio State is No. 13 now.

Now ranked No. 8, the undefeated Badgers are the lowest ranked Power-Five team yet to lose a game, behind Georgia, Alabama and Miami.

It's a ideal 10-0, but Mississippi State threw a scare at the Crimson Tide with a ball-control attack that included 49 rushing attempts and three rushing touchdowns. An undefeated Georgia team, led by the two-headed monster in the backfield of seniors Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, who watched the Prayer at Jordan-Hare as high school seniors and recent Bulldog commits, will be looking to exact their revenge and prove something to the country in the process. Well, this is an opportunity for both TCU and Oklahoma to get a jump in the playoff polls if either team wins. After facing Wofford next week, they'll get Clemson to close out the regular season and stand a better chance than in either of the last two years to give their in-state rivals some trouble. Notre Dame has already locked in signature wins over USC and NC State but they can't afford to take a step back this week with a loss to Miami. The last time the Fighting Irish and Hurricanes played when both were ranked in the top-10 was 1990. Miami's defense is playing at another level, but I think the side in this game that's been undervalued is Notre Dame's defense.

Chicago To Host 2020 NBA All-Star Game
Silver noted he was a law student in Chicago when the city last hosted the event. The NBA All-Star Game is finally returning to Chicago .

Alabama (9-0): Crimson Tide wins out and it's in.

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. And the Hurricanes opponent was also decided in Week 11, as Clemson's win over Florida State clinched another Atlantic Division title for coach Dabo Swinney's team.

There's the long-shot scenario in the Big Ten, which suddenly seems a bit more plausible after Ohio State smacked Michigan State, 48-3. Wisconsin would be an interesting test case if it stays undefeated and wins the Big Ten, though a title game win over a two-loss team wouldn't be terribly impressive.

Apple Unveils Inaugural Scripted Series
Aniston and Witherspoon will both star in the untitled drama, marking Aniston's first regular TV role since " Friends ". In the meantime, the company has always been making noise about producing its own content on the movie and TV side.

The ACC, Big 12 and SEC steal the spotlight in Week 11 regarding marquee matchups. Even with road losses to Clemson and Louisiana State, they could be semifinal material.

UCF doesn't play in a power conference, despite the best efforts of the American Athletic Conference to consider itself as such. Even if they don't finish in the top two of the Big 12, the Cowboys might play their way into a New Year's Six bowl by winning out. Suppose the Buckeyes (8-2, 6-1 Big Ten) win out and demolish MI and Wisconsin (the latter in the Big Ten title game) along the way. Auburn might jump once-beaten Pac-12 champion Washington, but having to leap over multiple one-loss teams into the Top 4 would be a tall order. Any of those teams would first need to win their conference and then have a string of major upsets to even be in the running four the No. 4 spot in the playoff.

I'll take your questions on that or anything else on your mind beginning at 10 a.m.
