Alabama got a huge win over LSU last night.

The Ducks’ defense struggled against USC, but it did not matter.
3. (3) Kansas State
K-State has to like their odds of going 12-0.
4. (4) Notre Dame
This Irish looked finished a number of times against Pitt, but after a triple overtime win, their dream lives on. Next up: the “Holy War” against struggling BC.

I’m not dropping LSU after the loss. The Tigers were the first team to play with Alabama this year.

Nothing too scary left for South Carolina before their season finale against Clemson.

I think the Aggies have the offense to test Alabama’s defense.

Their upcoming tilt with Stanford should be a great game.

Toledo is 8-1.
20. (Not ranked) UCLA
UCLA beat Arizona 66-10!
