  • Saturday Takeaways In defeat Alabama becomes the Playoff’s biggest problem

The win also comes eight months into LSU's $1.5 billion Fierce for the Future systemwide fundraising campaign, which recently topped the $800 million mark, says Sara Whittaker, senior director of communications and marketing for the LSU Foundation. The same could happen this year.

LSU, Ohio State and Clemson are explanatory.

It will likely come down to teams like Alabama, Georgia, Oregon and Oklahoma.

Georgia, which was No. 6 in last week's Playoff rankings, lost to unranked SC earlier in the season and - even if it gets through Auburn and Texas A&M these next couple weeks - the Bulldogs would likely face LSU in the SEC title game. Overall, the game drew in an average of 16.636 million viewers, peaking at 20.610 million viewers from 6 6:15 p.m. However, should Oklahoma beat Baylor this weekend, they'd likely move ahead of Utah and potentially even OR for that No. 6 spot in our eyes. Also, Oregon lost to Auburn. Kansas State and Wake Forest are both projected out of the College Football Playoff rankings this week after losses to Texas and Virginia Tech respectively, both of who were unranked at the time of the takedown. Even if they win all of those games, it's possible the Tide could edge Oklahoma for that final Playoff spot.

The dream of an undefeated season is over, Penn State's playoff hopes have taken a huge hit, and PJ Fleck rowed the hell out of the boat at TCF Bank Stadium.

The knock on the Gophers entering the Penn State game was that they hadn't faced any tough teams. A loss and they'll be out of the running.

Before Saturday's loss, Penn State ranked fifth on the AP Top-25 poll. They've won all their games. "Well, I was wrong". By Sunday afternoon, they dropped down to No. 9 as a handful of teams, including Minnesota, jumped in front of them.
