The latest CFB Playoff rankings came out last night and today is Surviving “Paradise” Wednesday! So, first things first…please check out my book Surviving “Paradise” by Susan Willoch Shaver. Follow a southern woman who relocates to a new town full of great expectations – only to be met by a ridiculous set of people and circumstances. Check out the HOME page at this website for more info and the BUY THE BOOK option on the menu bar!
Now..about those latest rankings!
1 Alabama, 2 Oregon (love it!), 3 TCU (what? surprise), 4 FSU (gee, undefeated but dropped to #4), 5 Ohio State, 6 Baylor (beat TCU), 7 Arizona (only team to defeat Oregon, rematch in Friday’s Pac 12 title game!), 8 Michigan State, 9 Kansas State, 10 Miss State (from #4 to #10), 11 GEORGIA TECH (How about those Jackets, will face FSU in ACC title game Saturday night!), 12 Ole Miss, 13 Wisconsin, 14 UGA, 15 UCLA, 16 Missouri (will have the dubious task of facing Alabama in the SEC title game Saturday), 17 Arizona State, 18 Clemson, 19 Auburn, 20 Oklahoma, 21 Louisville, 22 Boise State, 23 Utah, 24 LSU, 25 USC (welcome back after beatdown of Notre Dame last weekend)
So this weekend we have the conference title games before selection Sunday at 12:30 pm EST on ESPN. SEC – Alabama vs. Missouri (gotta go with Bama); ACC -FSU vs. Ga. Tech (I am picking GT!!!); Big Ten – Ohio State (without injured QB Barrett) vs. Wisconsin (?), Pac 12 – Oregon vs. Arizona! This game is intriguing! Oregon suffered their only loss of the season to Arizona, at home in Eugene. They had numerous injuries to their offensive line and Mariota was hassled the entire game. Still, it was a close loss. I think Oregon gets it done this time in Santa Clara, CA! GO DUCKS! Also, in the Big 12, Kansas State will face Baylor in a pivotal game.
So, after this weekend, we will get our first ever final four in college football. (Meanwhile, people are already screaming for an eight team playoff…imagine that!)
New episode of Nashville airs tonight on ABC at 10:00 pm EST. Many shows have already aired their “winter finales”. Not yet for this ABC hit. Chicago Fire on NBC last night was awesome! Also, ACC/Big Ten Basketball Challenge gets underway on ESPN and ESPN2.
