Saturday's action kicks off at noon ET with 13 games, including (12) Michigan State at (13) Ohio State, (15) Oklahoma State at (21) Iowa State, and Arkansas at (24) LSU.

Georgia, the top-ranked team in the country, will face No. 10 Auburn away from home.

No. 3 Notre Dame at No. 7 Miami (Fla.), ABC, 8 p.m.: Miami fans may have wanted to declare that "The U is back" after last week's win over Virginia Tech, but I'm of a mind to say that The U won't be back unless it beats Notre Dame.

Georgia, Alabama, Notre Dame and Clemson top this week's College Football Playoff ratings and Associated Press poll.


So how many teams are still alive for the College Football Playoff? Clemson, ranked No. 4, will take on unranked Florida State. It would also help if nobody among Oklahoma, TCU, Miami and Wisconsin won their conference championship. Is Ohio State, which was ripped by 31 points at Iowa, that bad? This Auburn team will be its toughest test in a while. Their playoff chances remain minimal, but they're still on the radar - barely.

The college football slate for Week 11 is loaded with key matchups, with 14 of the top 25 teams facing off for the second straight week.

Auburn (7-2): Yes, Auburn can still make the playoff with two losses.

Tuesday night's rankings were unusually static, even boring, with only one team (Michigan State) making a major move (12 spots). Though it's not a true "playoff" in that every game's loser would definitely be eliminated from title contention, we'll certainly see more clarity in the playoff race after Saturday.
