Easy Ways to Fix the College Football Playoff and Make Everybody Happy

It starts Friday night as Oklahoma faces still-formidable West Virginia on the road.

Which top 10 teams will have the least amount of trouble this week? The Trojans have lost four of their last five games and are limping into their final game of the season.

The Georgia Bulldogs also control their own destiny, as a win over Alabama in the SEC championship game seals their fate in the College Football Playoff.

Purdue vs. Indiana, Baylor vs. Texas Tech and Tennessee vs. Vanderbilt. The example often give is Houston of the American Athletic Conference in 2016. If Ohio State wins Saturday against MI and its top-ranked defense, that will immediately become the most impressive victory on the Buckeyes' résumé. On Thanksgiving Day, Air Force hosts Colorado State, while Ole Miss looks to upset rival Mississippi State in the Egg Bowl.

As expected, there was no movement at the top of the rankings. Expect the victor of this game to move up around four to six spots in rankings next week. Rivalry week and the conference title games remain, but until then there's no reason for the committee to budge from their standing-Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and MI have separated themselves from the rest. Georgia 6. Oklahoma 7.

After that win, the Knights moved up three spots in the AP Top 25 poll to No. 8. We've got everything from general tips on how to bet college football and the best and worst coaches to bet on, to our proprietary power ratings that will put you ahead of the curve when getting bets down early in the week.
