College Football Week 11 Picks 2019 (November 9th)

The first College Football PlayOff Rankings of the season were released a few days ago and three of the top four teams I selected last week were unsurprisingly placed. The Clemson Tigers did not make the first top four of the season, and I did mention they could be punished for a weaker schedule but even now it is only going to take a loss for them to be left out.

In Week 11 the only game that really matters to the neutrals is the one between the LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide as two of the current top four meet. With both being in the same Division, you would think the losing team can't make the top four considering they won't have a Championship Game to fall back upon, but I would argue the losing team will make it as long as the winner goes on and remains unbeaten to conclude the regular season.

We also have two unbeaten Big Ten teams playing each other this week which will begin separating the top teams very quickly.

The College Football Picks finished up with a 4-1 record in Week 10, but there is still work to do to make sure a winning record can be put on the board for the season. It was a good bounce back week, but this one looks like one with more options which you can read below.

Western Kentucky Hilltoppers @ Arkansas Razorbacks Pick: There is a project in place in Fayetteville, but that doesn't mean that Chad Morris can be comfortable with the kind of season the Arkansas Razorbacks are having in 2019. They finished 2-10 in his first season with the school and they have already matched that number in his second season, although they are some way short of the kind of year that some were expecting from them.

It doesn't help being in the loaded SEC West Division which has two of the current top four in the College Football PlayOff Rankings. However uncompetitive losses to the Auburn Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide before a defeat against Mississippi State last week saw the Razorbacks out-gained by the largest amount of yard differential this season.

The quality of opponent lessens somewhat in Week 11 as the Razorbacks host the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers, although the CUSA team have to be respected. Last season they finished with a 3-9 record, but the Hilltoppers are one game away from being Bowl eligible in 2019 under Tyson Helton for the first time. The team are also very much involved in the Divisional race to get into the CUSA Conference Championship Game so Western Kentucky are clearly a team that are used to winning, although I do always wonder how much effort they will want to invest in a non-Conference game with two big Conference games to round out the season.

Being able to head into a Bye Week at the end of this one will help the mindset for the Hilltoppers players though and I am expecting their best effort. The game comes at the end of a difficult stretch for the Razorbacks and the layers are making the SEC team only a very slight favourite.

John Stephen Jones will be given the ball at Quarter Back for the Razorbacks in his first start in College Football after both Ben Hicks and Nick Starkel failed to take control of that position. The name might be semi-familiar to fans of American Football and that is because Jones is the grandson of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, and the spot looks a good one to make a first start against a team that is not supposed to be as strong as those from within the Conference.

It will be important for Jones if the Razorbacks can at least establish the run and put him in third and manageable positions and he should have some success moving the chains. The Razorbacks Offensive Line have given the Quarter Back time and so you would think Jones is set up to have a solid performance before the Bye Week.

He and the Razorbacks will need it against a Western Kentucky team looking to recover from back to back losses against some of the top teams in their Conference. The Hilltoppers will have some motivation as they are being led by Quarter Back Ty Storey who actually transferred in from the Razorbacks before this season began.

Storey's experience with the Razorbacks might mean he is more familiar with the looks the Defensive unit give him, but converting that into points is a different matter. Most of us will understand players in the SEC are going to be as talented as any in the nation and they are usually superior to those playing in the other Conferences which means Storey is trying to bridge a big gap here.

Some of the recent Arkansas Defensive numbers have been far from impressive, but you have to factor in the kind of opponents they have been playing. It is much harder to believe the Hilltoppers can establish the run in the same way that the likes of Auburn, Alabama and Mississippi State have been able to do and the Western Kentucky struggles to open holes up front in Conference games means the pressure will be on Ty Storey to make the plays through the air.

I do think Storey will have his moments, but the Razorbacks Secondary have held up pretty well and I think the game means a lot more to Arkansas which should be on show on Saturday.

It is hard to trust Arkansas when you think of the way things have gone for them over the last three seasons, while they tend to struggle to cover numbers. However the Hilltoppers have a poor record in non-Conference games too and they have not covered in any of their last six games against teams from the SEC.

I expect that to become seven in a row and the Razorbacks should have enough to just about get over this number in John Stephens Jones first start at Quarter Back.

Penn State Nittany Lions @ Minnesota Golden Gophers Pick: If you had been told that three teams were going to be unbeaten in the Big Ten going into Week 11 of the College Football season the Ohio State Buckeyes and Penn State Nittany Lions might have been amongst your list of possibilities. The one team that has surprised the most is the Minnesota Golden Gophers who have surpassed the seven wins they had in 2018 in PJ Fleck's third year as Head Coach.

This is already the third year in a row that the Golden Gophers will have improved their record under their Head Coach, but the ambitions will have increased massively after opening 8-0 in 2019. Now a Big Ten Championship Game and possibly even a College Football PlayOff berth is in the control of the Golden Gophers if they can win out this season, although that is going to be a big challenge.

The first of the obstacles to an unbeaten season is the Penn State Nittany Lions who are also 8-0 this season and hoping to keep the momentum going before a big game with the Ohio State Buckeyes which is coming up soon. The Nittany Lions face the Buckeyes in Week 13 and they will be looking for the upset which could take them back into the Big Ten Championship Game for the first time since the 2016 season.

Even then they were not invited into the College Football PlayOff bracket, but the Nittany Lions won't be worrying about what the future holds for them and instead will take things game by game under James Franklin.

Sean Clifford has shown he is very comfortable leading Penn State from the Quarter Back position and his strong performance helped overcome the Michigan State Spartans on the road two weeks ago. This game feels like a big test for Clifford because the Minnesota Defensive unit have picked up their play from 2018 with the experienced team showing they have grown plenty.

With Noah Cain banged up, the Nittany Lions might not have an easy day running the ball against the Golden Gophers Defensive Line. This is the best Line that PJ Fleck has had in his time with Minnesota and they have been restricting teams on the ground all season, although this is the beginning of a four game stretch during which they will be tested more than they have for much of the year.

Even then I do think it will be tough for the Nittany Lions to establish a consistent running game without Sean Clifford perhaps throwing things open. So far this season the Golden Gophers Secondary has been playing at an extremely high level and they have to be respected, and the Quarter Back may be in a position where he has to look to manage the game and not give it away.

Clifford can then rely on the Penn State Defensive unit to step up as they have throughout the 2019 season when the Offense has not been as productive as the team would like.

Immediately the key battle where things could be won and lost is in the trenches on this side of the ball as Minnesota try and establish the run against the very strong Penn State Defensive Line. Rodney Smith has been playing very well for Minnesota and helping the team produce 5.7 yards per carry in their last three games, but doing that against the Nittany Lions who have given up 3 yards per carry despite playing three of the best teams in the Conference is a whole another thing.

Tanner Morgan might need to step up his own performance if the Golden Gophers are going to win this one. He has been solid at Quarter Back, but the Offensive Line is not as comfortable in pass protection as they are in run blocking and I do think Morgan could find a tough outing in front of him if being forced to throw from third and long spots on a regular basis in this game.

There have been one or two holes in the Penn State Secondary that have shown up as teams have been chasing points against them. However it is not easy to throw against a team who have been creating turnovers and this is going to be a true test of how good the Minnesota Golden Gophers actually are or whether they are a product of what has been a far from taxing schedule.

Both teams have some solid trends behind them, but I like the Penn State Nittany Lions who have been good to me for the majority of the 2019 season. They have really picked up their level as they have taken on a difficult portion of their schedule and Penn State have been strong coming out of their Bye Weeks under James Franklin.

I have massive respect for PJ Fleck, the Minnesota Head Coach, but his team have yet to be tested like they will be on Saturday. I think the Nittany Lions Defense makes a couple of big plays to drag the momentum behind them and they can just about pull away and cover this number in a road victory.

Illinois Fighting Illini @ Michigan State Spartans Pick: Going into Week 11 I would have been convinced that the team looking to become Bowl eligible this week would have been the Michigan State Spartans rather than the Illinois Fighting Illini. Instead the 2019 season has been as disappointing for the Spartans as it has been surprising for the Fighting Illini ahead of this latest Conference game.

This is Lovie Smith's fourth season as Head Coach of Illinois and he has already led the team to the most wins in a single season in his tenure here at 5-4. There is every chance they can earn the one more win needed to become Bowl eligible for the first time since the 2014 season and the Fighting Illini have some momentum behind them which may lead to a first winning record since 2011.

Three wins in a row including upsetting them unbeaten Wisconsin have helped the Fighting Illini turn around a season that looked to be going in the same way as the previous three under Smith. The pressure would have been building on the Head Coach, but things look much rosier now and certainly better than how things are in East Lansing where the Spartans have been well short of the best teams in the Big Ten East.

Michigan State are 4-4 this season and they have lost three in a row which sees them trending in a negative direction. Offensively it has been hard work for the Spartans during that losing run and we could see more of the same when they face the Illinois Fighting Illini Defense which has been playing at an unexpectedly strong level.

A key to the successes for Illinois have been the strength they have shown in clamping down on the run having struggled to do that in 2018. The Fighting Illini have given up just 4.2 yards per carry and less than 190 rushing yards per game in 2019 which is a marked improvement on the 6 yards per carry and 245 yards per game they allowed in 2018 and I do think the recent performances are encouraging for them.

Illinois have restricted teams to 3.5 yards per carry on their winning run and they should be able to at least clamp down on the Spartans rushing options in this one. Surprisingly the Michigan State Offensive Line has not been as productive in run blocking as their predecessors in recent years and a banged up Running Back committee is not helping their cause either.

All in all that doesn't bode well for Brian Lewerke at Quarter Back who has struggled for consistency when it comes to throwing the ball all season. His numbers have been poor during the three game losing run and Lewerke is going to be under pressure from the Illinois pass rush which has been key to the Secondary picking up their play too.

The Spartans should be able to have more success than they have when trying to move the ball against Ohio State, Penn State and Wisconsin, but this is not an Offense which is going to blow teams out. With that in mind I do think there is an opportunity for the underdog to play a very competitive game and perhaps even pull the upset.

Lovie Smith and his Coaching team have made things pretty simple for the Offensive unit and that is making sure they are a run first team. It has been successful in recent games and I do think the Fighting Illini will have every chance of establishing the run against the Michigan State Defensive Line which has given up 5.1 yards per carry in their three game losing run. To make matters tougher for the Spartans, leading tackler Joe Bachie has been ruled out for the remainder of the regular season and possibly the Bowl Game which may make stopping the run that much more difficult.

They don't ask a lot from the Quarter Back when it comes to throwing the ball and so this could be something of a short game with the run likely going to chew up the clock. That won't be a concern to the Fighting Illini who will feel they can win the field position battle in this game and run the ball well enough to keep this one close.

My only concern is that the Fighting Illini do not have a very good record against the Michigan State Spartans. However the home team have been struggling against the spread as they have tended to be overrated and I am not sure why they are being favoured by this many points when you think of the Offensive struggles they have had for much of the 2019 season.

Louisville Cardinals @ Miami Hurricanes Pick: There was a real sense of expectation with the Miami Hurricanes going into the 2019 season despite the abrupt retirement of Head Coach Mark Richt at the end of 2018. Manny Diaz is well respected by the players, but it has been a surprisingly inconsistent season for a team sitting at 5-4 and still needing two wins to match the total from last season.

Three wins from the last four games have just given the Hurricanes some momentum before the season was lost though and they are very much in contention in the ACC Coastal Division as they try and reach the Championship Game for the second time in three years.

Miami do need to run the table and also hope one or two things break their way and they are a favourites to knock off the Louisville Cardinals in Week 11. However they don't want to overlook their opponent who have been surprisingly effective in Scott Satterfield's first season in Louisville as he has guided a team from 2-10 to 5-3 so far in 2019.

Unfortunately the Cardinals are based in the same Division as the Clemson Tigers, but even a one sided loss to the National Champions has not dented the belief in a team who knocked off the Virginia Cavaliers last time out. Becoming Bowl eligible in Week 11 would be a huge achievement for the team and the Cardinals have upset the Wake Forest Demon Deacons to show they can be a threat on the road too.

The challenge for Micale Cunningham and the Louisville Offensive unit is going to be imposing themselves on the Hurricanes Defense which has remained one of the strongest in the Conference. It was the Defense which laid the platform for the successes Miami had last season and it is proving to be very important for them again.

Cunningham has proven to be a dual-threat Quarter Back that is going to try and keep the Hurricanes off-balance, but the Miami Defensive Line have made a point of shutting down the run. If they can put the clamps on Cunningham and Javian Hawkins they will believe they can make the Cardinals a little predictable and force Cunningham to have to take chances with his arm.

That will not be easy for the Quarter Back considering the Louisville Offensive Line has been much more comfortable in run blocking rather than pass protection. Now they will likely have to find a way to give Cunningham time while trying to fend off the Miami pass rush which has been coming up huge for the Hurricanes during their better run of results.

The improvement by the Defensive unit has bled into the successes the Offense has been having too and I expect Miami to have a better day on that side of the ball than their opponents. The Hurricanes have not been the best at running the ball, but there are signs they are working things out on the Offensive Line and now face a Louisville team giving up 5.7 yards per carry in their last three games.

Finding a consistency in the run blocking has followed better pass protection and that has allowed Jarren Williams to have some solid successes from the Quarter Back position. if the Hurricanes can keep things clean in the pocket by establishing the run first, Williams should be able to hurt a Cardinals Secondary which has given up some big yards through the air.

Turnovers could be key to the eventual result, but Williams has been looking after the ball better than Cunningham in recent games. An extra possession or two should help Miami pull clear as they remain in contention in the ACC Coastal Division.

Louisville have covered in recent games against Miami, but I think the Hurricanes can show they are the better team in this one. These teams haven't met since 2014 so the recent record does not bother me so much and I will look for the Hurricanes to cover here.

Wake Forest Demon Deacons @ Virginia Tech Hokies Pick: There is a big game on deck for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons as they face Divisional leaders and College Football PlayOff chasing Clemson Tigers in Week 12. However, it would be foolish of them to overlook the Virginia Tech Hokies who will be desperate to become Bowl eligible and also remain in contention in the ACC Coastal Division.

Dave Clawson has already secured a fourth consecutive winning season as Head Coach of Wake Forest, but the motivation to secure more than 8 wins for the first time since 2007 will be high for the 7-1 team. The Demon Deacons are trying to show they are at least the second best team in the ACC which may see them rewarded with a big Bowl game in December and they will want to win out, but at least go 3-1 with the game against Clemson in mind.

Despite producing almost 150 more yards than the Louisville Cardinals, Wake Forest lost their unbeaten record but they have bounced back to win two in a row. That includes blowing out the NC State Wolfpack in Week 10 and the Demon Deacons won't be intimidated by a trip to Virginia Tech.

A three game winning run came to an end for Virginia Tech when going down to Notre Dame Fighting Irish in Week 10, but they have been out-gained in terms of yardage in four of their last five games despite winning three of them.

Quincy Patterson may get another start at Quarter Back and he showed he can be as effective with his legs as his arm in the close defeat to the Fighting Irish. The experience should do the Freshman well, and he should be able to have some success against the Demon Deacons Defensive unit which is good, but perhaps not as strong as some of the others that Patterson could have faced.

The Hokies should be able to establish the run against a Wake Forest Defensive Line that has allowed 4.4 yards per carry in their last three games. Patterson will certainly help Virginia Tech in doing that and being in third and manageable spots should allow the Quarter Back to take some shots at this Secondary.

With a ground game being established, Patterson should be well protected and I do think the Hokies will have their successes. His inconsistency might be the biggest hindrance, which is not a surprise with an inexperienced Quarter Back in his second start, and the Demon Deacons might be looking to take chances to shut down the run and see if the Virginia Tech Freshman can beat them in the air.

Running the ball is likely going to be a lot more difficult for the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, but that should not be a big concern for them when it comes to the Offensive output produced on the day. Unlike previous years, the Virginia Tech Defensive unit would have been fixed up with few holes to exploit, but the 2019 version of the team has massive concerns with the Secondary.

Jamie Newman was back at Quarter Back for the Demon Deacons in Week 10 and he had a huge game against the Wolfpack. I very much expect Newman to pick up from where he left off last week as the Hokies are allowing over 320 passing yards per game in their most recent games.

He has been well protected by the Offensive Line and I don't think the Hokies will get enough pressure to force Newman into too many mistakes. Jamie Newman has already surpassed 2000 passing yards in his first seven games for the team and he looks set to lead the Demon Deacons to a big road win as a slight favourite.

This is the first time these teams have met since 2014 when the Virginia Tech Hokies would have been big favourites to beat Wake Forest every time. Things have changed though and I do think backing the Demon Deacons as the slight road favourite is the selection against a Hokies team who are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games at home.

Kansas State Wildcats @ Texas Longhorns Pick: The Big 12 Conference has taken a few hits already this season as far as having a potential College Football PlayOff team is concerned. With the Oklahoma Sooners losing, the whole Conference has taken a step back although that is not a concern for either the Kansas State Wildcats or the Texas Longhorns.

Both of these teams are already 3-2 in the Conference which means they are in a position to challenge for a spot in the Championship Game, although the losing team in Week 11 will be out of contention. That makes this a huge game for both the Longhorns and the Wildcats who will also know they need the Sooners or the Baylor Bears to have a poor end to the season to get in front of them.

Kansas State have plenty of momentum behind them as they have won three games in a row- they have beaten the TCU Horned Frogs and rivals Kansas Jayhawks, but the meat in the sandwich was the upset of the Oklahoma Sooners. The Wildcats have been the underdog in two of those three games and so they won't be unfamiliar with being in this spot against the Longhorns.

It has been a different kind of momentum for Texas who have lost to the Sooners and Horned Frogs and only barely held off the Kansas Jayhawks. You can make an argument that the Longhorns could have easily changed the narrative of their season in those games as they hadn't played badly, but the Defensive unit has let them down and it makes it hard to trust the Longhorns.

Injuries contributed to the recent poor Defensive efforts, but the Longhorns are off a Bye Week and should have some key contributors back in the line up. How healthy those players are is going to be key to whether the Longhorns Defensive Line can improve their recent numbers which has seen them give up 5.9 yards per carry in their last three games.

Running the ball has been a vital part of the successes Kansas State have had all season and they have a Quarter Back in Skylar Thompson who is happy to help move the chains with his legs. They should be able to establish the ground game in this one too and that should allow Thompson to make some short throws through the air to keep the Texas Defense honest.

The Wildcats will need to keep the ground game going to also control the clock and limit the time Sam Ehlinger and the powerful Texas Offensive unit have with the ball in their hands. Like Kansas State, Texas will be looking to pound the ball on the ground and open things up for Ehlinger, while also keeping their Quarter Back out of third and long spots from which they have struggled to protect him.

It is hard to expect Ehlinger to have a poor outing, but he could be put in a tough position by the Wildcats if this is a shoot out as the Kansas State Secondary has played well enough to offer some resistance. Interceptions blighted Sam Ehlinger in the defeat to the Horned Frogs, and the extra possessions in this one could be huge for the two teams.

Kansas State are 9-2-1 against the spread in the last twelve in this series and the underdog is 9-4-1 against the spread in the last thirteen between these teams. For a long time the Wildcats have been a very good underdog to back and they have continued that under their new Head Coach Chris Klieman who is also close to securing a winning record after taking over a 5-7 team.

With the points being given to the road underdog I think that is the best play from this game.

Iowa Hawkeyes @ Wisconsin Badgers Pick: The Big Ten looks like having at least one team reaching the College Football PlayOff with three unbeaten teams remaining, but things have not been as rosy for the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Wisconsin Badgers. Both looked capable of fighting it out for a place in the Conference Championship Game, but both have been dropped to 3-2 in the Conference thanks to teams from the Big Ten East.

It means this is virtually a winner stays on kind of game for both Iowa and Wisconsin with the winning team having expectations of chasing down the unbeaten Minnesota Golden Gophers. On the other side the losing team might be left wondering what might have been in the 2019 season.

The expectations were arguably greater for the Hawkeyes and much of the Badgers momentum was picked up in their 6-0 start to the season. Wisconsin look like the are going to be able to surpass the 8 wins they reached in 2018, but it is a tougher challenge for Iowa who need to win out in their remaining regular season games to match the 9 wins they earned last season.

Iowa have had some difficulties in being able to run the ball with confidence in recent games as the competition has stepped up, but they might have one or two more holes to exploit in Week 11. This time they are facing a Wisconsin Defensive Line which has allowed a few more yards per carry in their recent run than their overall number on the season. Either way it won't be a consistent run game for Nate Stanley to lean on and that means the Quarter Back has to show something he could not against Penn State and Michigan in defeats to those teams.

I am not expecting a huge game from Stanley, but he will be asked to manage things and make sure he doesn't lose it for the Hawkeyes. Interceptions proved costly in the defeat to the Michigan Wolverines and Stanley can't allow that to be the case in Week 11 if the Hawkeyes are going to get back into contention in the Big Ten West.

For the most part this season the Quarter Back has been good with the ball and that should at least give Iowa the chance to keep this close and competitive.

Running the ball is going to be a huge test for the Badgers too despite having Jonathan Taylor in the backfield and the Hawkeyes have prided themselves on being able to shut teams down up front. In the last couple of weeks Taylor has had some difficulties to get on track and now faces a team that has allowed 2.9 yards per carry during a time when the Hawkeyes have begun to play better teams too.

If the Hawkeyes can shut down Taylor, they will be forcing Jack Coan to try and beat them through the air. The young Quarter Back is going to feel plenty of pressure from the Iowa pass rush and the Badgers have not been able to hold teams off for long enough if they have not been able to get the run going.

Jack Coan struggled against the Ohio State Buckeyes and this Iowa Secondary has shown they are plenty good too. The Hawkeyes have allowed less than 180 passing yards per game for the season and this has all the makings of a close and competitive game which makes the start being given to the underdog very appealing.

The road team is 9-3 against the spread in the last twelve in this series and the Hawkeyes are 5-1 against the spread in the last six here.

Both teams are coming out of a Bye Week and the Badgers have to be respected for being a stronger home team than one that plays on the road. However Iowa have only lost their two games by a combined twelve points this season and this looks a lot of points for a quality team to be given.

Missouri Tigers @ Georgia Bulldogs Pick: The loss to the South Carolina Gamecocks means the Georgia Bulldogs have very little room for error if they are going to force their way into the College Football PlayOffs. In reality they have to win out, but I was quite surprised that the Rankings did not see them punished a little more for having a loss to a team with a losing record.

The win over the Florida Gators would have given the Bulldogs a boost, but Kirby Smart knows full well that his team have to focus game by game and can't afford another defeat if they are going to reach the goals that were set at the start of the season. At 7-1 they are very much on course for yet another double digit winning season, but the Bulldogs could lose their grip on the inside track to the SEC Championship Game if they are lose on Saturday.

The Bulldogs host the Missouri Tigers who have dropped back to back games to fall to 5-3 for the season and 2-2 in the Conference. The injury suffered by Kelly Bryant didn't help, but Missouri had been struggling Offensively anyway and now have to face what many will consider the best Defensive unit in this Division.

Missouri should have a chance to at least match the 8 wins earned in 2018, but beating the Georgia Bulldogs looks a tall task for them. Kelly Bryant's status remains clouded and you have to really worry about the Tigers chances if he is not available in Week 10, but even with Bryant I am wondering how they can move the chains with any kind of consistency.

Kelly Bryant offers a real dual threat from the Quarter Back position and without him I imagine the Bulldogs will double down in stopping the run. The Tigers should have a little success against this Defensive Line, but ultimately the Bulldogs Defensive Line should be able to win the battle in the trenches which will set them up for another big performance on that side of the ball.

Passing the ball was always going to be a difficulty for Missouri regardless of who starts at Quarter Back but we know that the drop from Bryant to Taylor Powell is a very big one. The Georgia Secondary have not been able to turn the ball over as much as they would have liked, but they have stalled drives and should be able to give the Offense the ball in a good field position for much of the day.

Some Georgia fans might be wondering whether the decision to stick with Jake Fromm ahead of Justin Fields is going to prove to be the correct one, but Fromm has played well enough this season. He might not be needed so much in this game with expected First Round NFL Draft Pick D'Andre Swift looking capable of having a very big game at Running Back against a Missouri Defensive Line that has allowed 4.8 yards per carry in their last three games.

Swift should be able to keep the chains moving and put Fromm in a position where he needs to make a few plays to hurt the Missouri Secondary if they sell out to stop the run. The Tigers Secondary has played well to be fair to them, but if the team can't stop the run it won't matter much as Georgia get into a position to win and win well on the day.

The underdog has to be respected having covered in four games in a row in this series. However Missouri were beaten by 25 points when they last visited Georgia in 2017 and I think the Bulldogs are now motivated to win games and win them big to impress those putting the College Football PlayOff Rankings together.
