Thanks to a wild week, with active teams going 12-11, six previously unranked teams have cracked the top 25 (#17 Navy, #18 Iowa, #19 LSU, #21 Virginia Tech, #23 Pitt, and #25 USF). Alabama reigns supreme once again, winning their 24th game in a row, dating back to last season. #2 Ohio State came out on top of #3 Michigan in a double-overtime classic, 30-27, seemingly earning their spot as the second best team in the nation. With conference championship week looming, including #9 Oklahoma vs. #12 Oklahoma St. in what is basically the Big 12 title game, a handful of teams will have one more chance to make their case for a spot in the College Football Playoff.
