At Georgia, Mel Tucker's defense gives up fewer than 12 points a game.

No. 12 Michigan State at No. 13 Ohio State; No. 20 Iowa at No. 8 Wisconsin; and No. 2 Alabama at No. 16 Mississippi State.

Notre Dame (8-1): The Fighting Irish will nearly certainly be in if they win out, and their case would be strengthened if Georgia (which dealt Notre Dame its only loss) continues to stay undefeated.

"Some of the other signature wins have gone by the wayside, particularly Alabama over Florida State", he said.

Georgia, the top-ranked team in the country, will face No. 10 Auburn away from home. However, they'd still have to sweat out Selection Sunday. No. 25 Iowa, and No. 11 Ohio State vs. The Sooners host unsafe TCU (8-1) and the scoreboard will be lit as the Sooners average 45.0 points a game and the Horned Frogs average 35.8. It'll be interesting to see how things play out and what the CFP rankings look like next week.

For Miami, this would be the win that punches its card as a legit playoff contender. Both teams linger behind four one-loss teams: Notre Dame, Clemson, Oklahoma and No. 6 TCU. A pair of undefeated teams, Miami and Wisconsin are #7 and #8. Even then, they might not be in.

It's not out of the realm of possibility that a two-loss team makes the playoff.

Although they are unbeaten, the Badgers are sitting in eighth and need quite a bit of help to feel secure about their spot in the top four. It would also help if nobody among Oklahoma, TCU, Miami and Wisconsin won their conference championship.

In addition to the colossal clashes, there are a handful of other games that will play a role in determining where certain teams land during Tuesday's rankings release and whether a few conferences are still in the hunt for the top four positions.
