There was shuffle beyond the top 10, with some losses dropping a few teams and knocking out others altogether. The only three teams ahead of the Wolverines are Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame in that order.

LSU, Washington State, West Virginia and Ohio State stayed the course to round out the top 10.

As you can see, this big-bowl payday will likely come down to either the victor of the AAC or the victor of the MWC. Alabama, Clemson, and Notre Dame will be in if they win out. So that's at least 12.2 points, but if you add that to West Virginia's current score of 10.9, that's still only 23.1 points.

"We saw their game against Navy in the win and obviously the offense continues to perform, McKenzie Milton is a special talent but strength of schedule continues to be part of the discussion for the committee and that's why they moved up to No. 11", Playoff chair Rob Mullens said of the Knights. With conference championships a big point of emphasis for the committee, Notre Dame would effectively be eliminated without an unblemished record. Fans have assumed there isn't much drama left for the final weeks with the exception of a game or two to decide the Big Ten and SEC champions.
