This week’s college football schedule doesn’t feature any top-10 matchups like last week, but as the number of contenders in the College Football Playoff race starts to shrink, everyone is on upset watch. Which teams will survive another week?
The Utah Utes host the Oregon Ducks in what is arguably the biggest game of the week. The winner stays in the CFP race with one loss and takes a big step closer to the Pac-12 title game. The loser will need some help to get there. Meanwhile, three undefeated teams, Georgia, Oklahoma and Ohio State take on quality opposition away from home. What are the odds any of them lose? Let’s take a look.
