College Football Week 10 Wrap-Up

Stay tuned for a post tomorrow breaking down playoff probabilities for every remaining playoff contender

1. Alabama
2. Clemson
3. Oklahoma
4. Michigan
5. Georgia

Alabama's lead over the rest of the country continues to grow with their demolition of LSU. I'd have them as a 5 point favorite on a neutral field against Clemson, and a 10 point favorite against Oklahoma.

6. Notre Dame
7. UCF
8. Ohio State
9. LSU
10. Mississippi State

Mississippi State is back in the top 10 for the first time in a while after their demolition of Louisiana Tech. Their defense will be able to keep Tua relatively in check, but their offense has struggled against Florida, LSU and Kentucky.

11. Purdue
12. Washington
13. Iowa
14. Missouri
15. Fresno State

I've been high on Missouri all season and that was vindicated as they smacked Florida on the road last weekend. They came very close to winning both the South Carolina and Kentucky games- and if they had won both they'd be 7-2 with their only losses to Alabama and Georgia, and probably in the top 10 of the polls.

16. Iowa State
17. Boston College
18. Michigan State
19. Penn State
20. West Virginia

Boston College is back up to about where they were before the Purdue loss. They've still got a very faint shot at the playoff- if they win out they'll be the ACC champions and if a lot of chaos happens elsewhere I can envision a scenario in which they get in.

21. Texas
22. Utah
23. Arizona State
24. Texas Tech
25. Auburn

Arizona State vaults into the top 25 for the first time all year after their big win over Utah- the Sun Devils now control their own destiny in the Pac-12 South. One under-reported story resulting from this is that Michigan State's schedule now looks really strong- given that two of their non-conference games were against Arizona State and my #26 team, Utah State.

Next Ten: Utah State, Wisconsin, Texas A&M, Stanford, NC State, Syracuse, Kentucky, Washington State, Duke, Georgia Tech
