UCF put a thrashing on Cincinnati last week, and the College Football Playoff committee took notice. Well, at least the part that really matters is exactly the same.

Texas has now won two games in a row after dropping two straight to Oklahoma State and West Virginia.

The Longhorns just need to win at Kansas on Friday to make the league title game on December 1 at AT&T Stadium. An 11-1 Notre Dame squad would likely be ahead of a 12-1 Washington State, but maybe not in front of 12-1 Oklahoma. That is why the Buckeyes were jumped in the rankings by UCF, which moved from 11th to ninth.

Ohio State's last chance to impress the selection committee will be against a ranked Northwestern team in the Big Ten championship, and how both OU and Ohio State look on Saturday - dominant or fortunate - could matter. Should Texas win again, the Big 12 likely would be eliminated from consideration because the Longhorns have three losses. Upsets are sweeter and sting more in rivalry games, and you may want to look at some of the recent weeks results from other rivalry games to keep your own emotions and cash in check if you feel like betting on mostly big favorites and stronger teams.

The complete rankings are below.

No. 12 Penn State is in the mix but might not earn much of a bump if it beats Maryland. Notre Dame 4. MI 5. Ohio State remained at No. 10.

LSU surprisingly still sits at No. 7 ahead of Washington State as the highest-ranked two-loss team, but the Cougars can pass the Tigers with an Apple Cup win this week over Washington, which is also slotted in the top-15.

The final week of the regular season has spelled disaster for Alabama in 2013, Baylor in 2015 and Mississippi State in 2014 when it seemed like their national championship hopes were stripped away in the final weekend of the season.
