11/14/2021

Week 11 came to a close and it left a significant certainty in the college football playoff outlook. Georgia remains the dominant football team while the rest of the teams are trying to find their true identity. Here are the following winners and losers:

Winners:

Georgia, Oregon, Ohio State, Baylor, and Wake Forest

Georgia outlasted Tennessee 41-17. Although the Bulldogs gave up 17 points (most this season), Stetson Bennett, James Cook, and the entire defense dominated the game. Tennessee led in the first quarter 10-7. After, Georgia scored 34 consecutive points. The Bulldogs clinched the division and will play against a possibility Alabama in the SEC Championship.

Oregon led 14-0 in the first quarter. Washington State tied the game before the half. However, the Ducks continued to battle-winning 38-14. Oregon has Utah and Oregon State left. There is still hope that the Ducks can win out.

Ohio State handled their business and defeated Purdue 59-31. The game was outreached by the half when the Buckeyes a 45-17 lead. In the second half, Both teams scored 14 points. Could that be a concern for Ohio State? They will host Michigan State and go on the road to Michigan in their last two season games.

Baylor smashed Oklahoma's chances to reach the college football playoffs. Baylor routed Sooners 27-14. Lincoln Riley benched Caleb Williams and had Spencer Rattler take over. Neither QB was effective with the brilliant defense by the Bearcats. Cornerbacks Kalon Barnes and Al Walcott ruined Sooner's chances to gain momentum as they both collected an interception. QB Gerry Bohanon and RB Abram Smith ran all over the Sonner's defense and can make a big difference should they reach the Big 12 Championship. Baylor will need help for Oklahoma State to defeat Oklahoma.

Wake Forest defeated NC State in an epic game. They will finally get their shot at the ACC Championship by handling their business next Saturday against Clemson.

Losers:

Texas A&M, Auburn, NC State

SEC: Texas A&M and Auburn should be the teams to be left out of the top 25. The biggest hype to claim that SEC is the most dominant conference in all college football is false. The teams have been given more than enough opportunity to do something in the rankings. Unfortunately, Aggies and the Tigers go down this weekend and do not look good for Alabama's resume.

NC State lost a big one as they blew an opportunity to win against Wake Forest. The loss eliminates them to the ACC Championship.
