Week 11 college football scores, highlights from Saturday's games

We've already seen one top 10 fall when ninth-ranked Washington fell to Stanford 30-22 Friday night. No. 12 Ohio State faces No. 13 Michigan State (noon). Auburn, which is still in the hunt for the SEC West title, goes against a Georgia team trying to maintain its grip on the CFP's top spot. A Top 25 matchup between No. 3 Notre Dame at No. 7 Miami harkens back to old days when these teams were bitter rivals and is the highlight game to watch today.

Clemson (8-1): The Tigers will be in if they win out, including the ACC championship game.

The biggest obstacle for both Miami and Wisconsin, other than the SEC tandem at the top, looks to be Oklahoma. Is Ohio State, which was ripped by 31 points at Iowa, that bad? They play at the same time, so have the remote ready.

The No. 1 ranked team in the country is going to have a tough test this week. That left the Big 12 out of the Playoff entirely and exposed one obvious flaw of the four-team format - there are five major conferences. Their playoff chances remain minimal, but they're still on the radar - barely.

Three top 10 matchups are on the slate along with four other top 25 matchups as Week 11 of the 2017 season promises to shake up the College Football Playoff rankings next week.

UCF remains in the driver's seat for a New Year's Six bowl, though the Knights have to be a bit peeved about staying at No. 18 - behind eight two-loss teams - despite a solid win at SMU. "This is the most significant Saturday of the season".
