Critics of the playoff are on the verge of being silenced. Unlike last year, seeding may be the only controversy this go-around. That’s if all goes as planned. The real mystery happens if Clemson and/or Alabama suffers a shocking upset in the conference title game. If that happens, expect intense debate over Ohio State, Stanford, and (potentially) North Carolina.

As many as twelve teams still have shots at making the top four, and the SEC, ACC, Big 12, and Big 10 each have significant drama left to determine the conference champion. It’s going to be a wild ride!

The top 11 teams plus #14 TCU all see a path to the top four. Surprisingly, the two conferences thought to be at the top of the heap (the SEC and PAC 12) going into the season boast a combined two teams remaining in the hunt with both being from the SEC and still set to play each other.

Four unbeaten teams went down on Saturday in the first weekend when the race for the playoffs got substantially clearer. Still, it is tough to say any of the top 14 are completely out of the race. With numerous quasi-quarterfinal (and potential quasi-quarterfinal matchups) still on the schedule (North Carolina-Clemson, TCU-Baylor, TCU-Oklahoma, Michigan State-Ohio State, Utah-Stanford, Florida-Alabama, Oklahoma-Baylor, Oklahoma-Oklahoma State, Notre Dame-Stanford, Iowa-Ohio State, and Oklahoma State-Baylor), the best of the college football season is yet to come.

Very little movement occurs in the Top 25 this week, but that changes today. Notably, Alabama and LSU battle for a spot in the playoff. FSU-Clemson and TCU-Oklahoma State are likely elimination games as well.

In what was supposed to be a week that did little to provide a clearer playoff picture, Utah and Florida State took losses that make it difficult to see a path back to playoff contention while Texas A&M now competes thoroughly out of the mix.

Last week boasted some headliner matchups, and this week features none. Still, playoff contenders Clemson, Utah, and Texas A&M all face teams this week with the talent to potentially knock them out of the discussion.

After a week of mild movement, a much clearer playoff picture looks likely after this coming Saturday. Alabama-TAMU, UCLA-Stanford, Michigan-Michigan State, and Florida-LSU are just a few games that will see a team improve playoff positioning or, perhaps, get knocked out of the picture entirely.

Does any team want “elite” status? While a number of schools remain undefeated, the 2015 college football season lacks elite teams at this stage, and, with two of the top four guaranteed to lose, the playoff picture remains wide open.

In a rough week for the state of Alabama, Auburn falls out of the Top 25, likely for the remainder of the season, and Alabama tumbles after a rough loss to Ole Miss. Despite the Yellowhammer State’s troubles, the SEC positions four teams in the top ten.

A wild week that almost saw an historic upset and featured two tight, late-night contests is followed up by what should be great feature matchups such as Auburn-LSU, Georgia Tech-Notre Dame, Alabama-Ole Miss, and BYU-UCLA. Those four top-25 games promise a significant shake-up in next week’s rankings.

The first week of the season sees the team that ended the last game of last season in the top spot back in familiar territory. Auburn seeks to rebound after a disappointing campaign, TCU and Baylor look for revenge after last year’s postseason snubs, and Oregon hopes to keep winning after losing Marcus Mariota.
