Goz's College Football Top 25 Poll (Week 14)

All Ohio State has to Sonnie is sit back let the dominos fall where they may on Championship Week, handle the Badgers-2014 style-in Indy and hope for the best. Oklahoma (#2), Wisconsin (#3), Auburn (#4), Georgia (#5), Alabama (#6) fill out the next chunk.

Clemson is the No. 1 in this week's Associated Press college football poll after beating SC. Seven of the remaining eight teams in CFB Playoff contention will play on Saturday. But their other nonleague game was a 38-7 win against Georgia Tech of the ACC, a power 5 matchup that alternates between Atlanta and Athens. Maybe even Texas Christian and Alabama, the latter on pedigree alone.

Vanderbilt earned its first SEC win of 2017 by defeating Tennessee in Knoxville. The victor of the Southeastern Conference game - in Atlanta, between Auburn (10-2) and Georgia (11-1) - is in. Two-loss Auburn and Ohio State could win conference championships.

The highest ranked team beaten by Alabama football is LSU at No. 16 in the Coaches Poll and No. 17 in the AP Poll.

The Nittany Lions lost two games by four points. The victor likely goes to the College Football Playoff. Saban refuses to schedule home-and-home games with power 5 conference teams.

Conference championship week is here, meaning there's one last round of chaos before the College Football Playoff committee makes their final selections.

The Crimson Tide are this year's version of Ohio State. If the Hurricanes beat Clemson, like I believe they will, they will represent the ACC in the CFP and have a chance to win the whole thing.

— Alabama's loss means there still will be only two teams in the history of the AP poll to go from preseason to final poll as No. 1: Florida State was first to do it in 1999 and Southern California did it in 2004.

So the photo finish probably will be between those two redoubtable blue bloods Ohio State and Alabama. Welcome to the club Fresno State.

"I think this team deserves an opportunity to get in the playoff by what they've been able to accomplish and what they've been able to do". And it would not be unprecedented for an 11-1 non-champion, such as Alabama, to leap over an 11-2 champion, such as Ohio State.

As a result, Badger football is in great position as we approach conference championship weekend. My poll philosophy all season long has been ranking the teams I believe are the best twenty-five best in the country following that given week's games.

And it should also be noted that many of Bama's SEC pals play in-state rivalry games outside of league play.
