The SEC dominates the top 4

Is the SEC three straight wins away from landing two teams in the playoffs?  Is the Big Ten out if the Badgers don’t run the table?  And what happens if the Big Ten and Big XII are both left out?   Here's this week’s best 10!  

1. Alabama – RTR! - QB Jalen Hurts made the throws he needed to in order to lift the Tide to a big SEC win.  Now can the young signal caller lead his team on the road two of the next three weeks and remain perfect?  Last week beat LSU 24-10/ this week @ Mississippi State.
2. Georgia – The Dogs got another century mark rushing effort from the Chubster Nick Chub.  Now the Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry looks like the last hurdle before Bama in the Atl!  Last week beat South Carolina 24-10/ this week @ Auburn 
3. Wisconsin – RB Jonathan Taylor once again gashed another foe.  This time the freshman ran for 183 yards and a score in another blowout win.  It looks as if the Badgers are the last best hope for the Big Ten to get a team in the Final Four!  But a dangerous road game at Iowa awaits this weekend.  Last week beat Indiana 45-17/ this week @ Iowa.  
4. Oklahoma – The smoothest QB in the land threw for 598 and 5 TD’s.  His main RB Justice Hill rushed for 228 yards.  And his top WR Marquise Brown hauled in nine receptions for 265 yards and 2 TD's in a big Bedlam win.  Last week beat Oklahoma State 62-52/ this week vs TCU.    
5. Clemson – The Tigers just need to win out and they are in.  No doubt!   Last week Georgia Tech 24-10/ this week @ N.C. State.    
6. Notre Dame – The Irish can win out and without question be one of the four playoff teams.  However with a loss things would be real difficult for ND to land among the best four.  Wow what a match-up this week.   Last week beat Wake Forest 48-37/ this week @ Miami.   
7.  Miami – Old school football fans will get amped up this week!  The Canes and Irish game once was the best and most followed in the nation.  Is it back?  Last week beat Virginia Tech 28-17 / this week vs Notre Dame.
8.  Washington – The Huskies are one of a few teams that still has a shot at winner take all in the Pac-12.  With that said going out to Palo Alto this week against a desperate Stanford team won’t be easy.  Last week beat Oregon 38-3 / this week @ Stanford.  
9.  TCU – You know I actually had counted the Frogs out two weeks ago.  But if TCU wins out they will win the Big XII and more than likely land in the playoffs.  Last week beat Texas 24-7/ this week @ Oklahoma
10.  Penn State – Yes they’ve lost two straight but in my own humble opinion I still think the Lions are the best overall team in the Big Ten.  However with back to back conference losses it’s hard to get anyone else to agree with me.  Last week lost to Michigan State 24-27 / this week vs Rutgers.
