As the college football season draws closer to the finish line, there is still a lot left to be decided. Today features five match-ups between ranked teams. The dynamic of a four team playoff has made this season all the more interesting, as so many teams now must win out to make the cut.
- Ohio State and Michigan State square off in a Big Ten showdown. Michigan State has a twelve game home winning streak while Ohio State has an eleven game road win streak. Something's gotta give. Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio says they got a win coming..
- No. 7 Kansas State takes on No. 6 TCU. This could turn into a shootout. Gil Brandt thinks TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin is similar to Russell Wilson but faster and taller. However, he's far from a finished product, completing just 57% of his passes on the year. Horned Frogs running back B.J. Catalon will miss the game due to an upper body injury.
- No. 5 Alabama faces a tough test when they play in Baton Rouge against a rising No. 16 LSU team today. LSU has a stiff defense and if the Crimson Tide are to win, their star receiver Amari Cooper will have to produce. Cooper will be one of the first receivers drafted in 2015. On the year, Cooper has 71 receptions, 1,132 yards, and nine touchdowns.
- No. 10 Notre Dame will have their hands full against No. 9 Arizona State. Arizona State wideout Jaelen Strong has been my favorite in the nation to watch this year. The 6'4" prospect has tremendous speed to go along with good hands and vertical ability. Sun Devils running back D.J. Foster is another weapon to watch. The versatile back has 708 rushing yards on the year, while also being a big threat in the passing game with 38 receptions.
