The College Football Playoff picture is starting to crystalize and each weekend is delivering crucial results as teams jockey for one of the four spots in the field.
No. 3 Michigan scored a critical win early in the day, stifling No. 10 Penn State in a vital Big Ten matchup. And the Wolverines did it without head coach Jim Harbaugh, who was unable to fight off a suspension handed down by the conference a day prior. No. 8 Alabama delivered the day's most emphatic result, blasting Kentucky in a SEC West-clinching beatdown in Lexington. Later, No. 5 Washington held on for a 35-28 win over Utah to keep its Pac-12 title and CFP hopes alive.
No. 4 Florida State also kept its CFP dreams afloat by hanging on for a 27-20 win over Miami.
Beyond that, it was an easy day for the rest of the undefeated CFP contenders, with No. 1 Ohio State cruising past Michigan State 38-3 and No. 2 Georgia crushing No. 9 Ole Miss 52-17.
And the top-ranked one-loss team, No. 6 Oregon, also took care of business with a 36-27 win over USC.
With Week 11 now in the books, Yahoo's Ross Dellenger reveals his updated Top 10:
Final: Oregon 36, USC 27
The No. 6 Ducks improve to 9-1. Pac-12 and CFP hopes still alive.
Oregon converts on 4th and 7. And with USC out of timeouts, that will ice it here in Eugene.
USC not going away after a defensive stop and a score!
Though it remains a 2-score game after the Trojans fell short on the -point try.
Touchdown USC. Caleb Williams to Brenden Rice on 4th and goal.
Not only is Bucky Irving back in the game, he's in the end zone! He starts the 4th quarter with a 19-yard TD run!
Good news: Bucky Irving is back in the game for Oregon.
