Not that much movement at the top-Should there have been? I know West Virginia and Ohio State moved a little bit in the AP but I didn't feel a need to move them at all. Kentucky lost and that was really all the action I had near the top 14.

A set up week for the final regular season week: The big games are all set for the final week of regular season (Friday West Virginia vs Oklahoma, Ohio State vs Michigan, Alabama vs Auburn). Most of those fun rivalry game are next weekend so many ranked opponents have easy match ups except for....

Notre Dame vs Syracuse-This is going to be a lot of fun to watch at Yankee Stadium. Both teams have huge implications in the game. The Fighting Irish have a chance to be one step closer to securing a college football playoff bid. If the Orange win out, they are likely heading to the Fiesta or Peach Bowl. writer Chris Carlson did an excellent job breaking down that possibility below.
