Betting College Football Fading the College Football Playoff rankings and three picks for Week 10

Coming in at No.3 after firing back at Northwestern in the second half, with a 31-21 win is Notre Dame. Alabama hosts Auburn on November 24. Ohio State rounds out the top ten.

No. 18 Mississippi State at No. 1 Alabama.

Iowa State was ranked for the first time this season, one of five teams to move into the ranking this week. If Clemson and Notre Dame are unbeaten, it's possible that MI would get left out. It will likely finish the season as a top 10 team in the country, but it can't compete with the elite. The only possible hang-up would be Georgia beating undefeated Alabama in a close game.

California wildfires destroy thousands of structures and force emergency evacuations
Early Friday morning, the wildfire jumped the 101 in Ventura County into Agoura Hills , closing a 4-mile stretch of the highway. Firefighters are challenged by residents moving about evacuation areas and high traffic as they follow the fire front.

No. 2 Clemson at No. 17 Boston College.

Now, with back-to-back losses by Texas in as many weeks, a title-game rematch and win over the hated Horns would earn Oklahoma nothing more than bragging rights. The gamble paid off and West Virginia remains in play for a spot not only in the Big 12 Championship, but possibly in the playoff semifinals. That's a resume with victories against Michigan State, Wisconsin and Penn State, and a seven-point road loss to Notre Dame. In terms of just how teams are playing right now, MI might be right behind Alabama and Clemson.

All those ranked teams losing propelled a few teams to new heights in the Top 25. It won't take more than one or two mild upsets to have the selection committee sifting through a bunch of two-loss teams to fill the final playoff spot. The good news for the Bulldogs is beating Alabama to win the SEC championship would nearly certainly make up for a second regular-season loss.

Andy Robertson urges Liverpool to rediscover their "spark"
They're probably the only ones this season that we haven't, for whatever reason. Liverpool finishes the group with a trip to PSG and a home game against Napoli.

Washington State travels to Colorado on Saturday.

Oklahoma Sooners - Neither they nor Washington State had convincing wins last weekend, but Oklahoma beat a better Texas Tech team on the road so they get the edge.

It's been a struggle in Year 1 for Chad Morris at Arkansas, but the Razorbacks (2-7) have kept three of their last four SEC games within two touchdowns.

California wildfires force Kim Kardashian, Alyssa Milano, more to evacuate homes
Kim Kardashian posted images to her Instagram story as she and her family fled a massive fire in California. Alyssa Milano tweeted that she and her family also had to evacuate.

The only other Pac-12 team to appear in last week's rankings was Utah, which dropped out after a 38-20 loss to Arizona State on Saturday. But that's a long way from certain considering the Buckeyes are the lowest ranked one-loss team. That's extreme, but if three of those six things happen, UCF probably gets a look.
