UCF Knights Hit Top 10 in College Football Playoff Rankings

Florida Gators' New Year's Six bowl chances look better in latest College Football Playoff rankings

Entering the final weekend of the regular season, with its tantalizing lineup of traditional rivalry games, does it seem as if there is an unusual number of contenders for the four College Football Playoff berths? Even so, both of the opponents of Georgia and USF have a respectable 7-4 record.

Northwestern (7-4) of the Big Ten and Utah (8-3) of the Pac-12 have also clinched spots in their respective conference championship game, and Texas (8-3) could do the same in the Big 12 on Friday by beating Kansas .

The UCF Knights are finally starting to get some national respect, as on Tuesday the CFP rankings were revealed and showed them jumping over Ohio State to No. 9 overall.

Week 13 offers some intriguing matchups with a lot on the line, including Michigan-Ohio State and Notre Dame USC.

Why didn't Washington State jump LSU?

Assuming Clemson gets a mulligan and gets into the playoff, every other team would have at least two losses. If Ohio State wins Saturday against MI and its top-ranked defense, that will immediately become the most impressive victory on the Buckeyes' résumé. Of course a two-loss Georgia team and two-loss LSU team would give the committee fits as well. The Tigers beat Georgia and have losses to No. 1 Alabama and No. 11 Florida. If Texas wins, it will face the victor of No. 6 Oklahoma and No. 13 West Virginia. The Panthers will play Clemson in the ACC Championship Game on December 1.

ALERT: Avoid contaminated lettuce
But, epidemiologic evidence from the United States and Canada indicates that romaine lettuce is a likely source of the outbreak. According to a 2013 USA government report, leafy greens such as lettuce and spinach are the biggest source of food poisoning.

After Saturday, Notre Dame has no more scheduled games.

Michigan Wolverines tight end Zach Gentry (83) tries to block a kick in the second half against the Ohio State Buckeyes at Michigan Stadium. Utah 18. Mississippi State 19. Boise State 24. Pittsburgh 25.
