The College Football Playoff race is clearing up heading into the final weekend of the regular season. Are three spots already locked up with unbeatens Georgia, Michigan and TCU able to ensure a loss? If so, does that mean Alabama is officially out and the race is only between Southern California and Ohio State?
Speaking of the Buckeyes, is there serious concern about the trend of the program under Ryan Day with two consecutive losses to rival Michigan? Clemson along with Oklahoma are two other members of college football’s royalty suffering difficult moments.
The coaching carousel has been spinning full speed with Nebraska, Wisconsin and Auburn all making major moves. How will Matt Rhule, Luke Fickell and Hugh Freeze fare at those respective jobs?
Dan Wolken and Paul Myerberg address all these storylines and look ahead to the championship game matchups in Week 14 during the latest version of College Football Fix, the USA TODAY Sports weekly podcast that releases every Wednesday during the season.
