Biggest surprises

The first is one is obviously Central Florida jumping over Ohio State but what I’m looking at is the Big 12. Oklahoma has a serious chance to gain ground on the top with a game at West Virginia this weekend and then either the Mountaineers or Texas Longhorns for a second time in the Big 12 title game.

What does this mean for WSU, UW

For the Cougars and the Huskies, the Apple Cup this Friday is an elimination game not only for the Pac-12 North title but what may end up being the only spot in a New Year’s Six bowl for the Pac-12. A Wazzu win would make their case for the top six even stronger and could be what they need to finally pass LSU after weeks of trailing the Tigers.

Why is this weekend important?

By the end of Saturday, we could possibly have a playoff spot locked up. Notre Dame goes on the road to face USC and is 60 minutes away from the playoff. Ohio State and Michigan will settle the Big Ten’s eastern division and the the Big 12 will have its title game participants put together. Oh and there’s that little thing called the “Apple Cup”, not sure if you’ve heard about it.
