  • What does it all mean for the playoff now?

  • Alright, Florida A and M there on the outside, looking in right now, The Aggies, with a 30% chance to get to that playoff.

  • Gators a little less 15% Member A and M beat Florida head to head that, according to the all state playoff predictor, Alabama still leads the way it 98% followed immediately by Ohio State at 86% 14 days until Selection Day for the college football playoff.

  • And we say Ohio State and we evoke the college football playoff.

  • And look who appears the college football playoff reporter Heather Dennis joining us on SportsCenter, AM and Heather.

  • What did this Ohio State win do for its chances of cementing a semi final spot?

  • That was a critical, necessary step for Ohio State to get one game closer to becoming eligible.

  • Meeting that six game benchmark the Big 10 has to play in its conference championship game.

  • But as long as the game against Michigan remains a question because of Covad 19 issues within the Wolverines program, so does that number four spot this week, though, Ohio State, without its head coach without 23 players.

  • They did everything they could to impress the selection committee and at least this week cling onto that number four spot.

  • Buckeyes extend their winning streak in conference play, 18 games, matching the longest active streak in the FBS.

  • Meanwhile, fifth ranked Texas A and M A convincing went over Auburn.

  • We just showed it to you.

  • How will the committee view that W, especially if the Buckeyes don't have an opportunity to win the Big 10 title?

  • Well, that's where it gets interesting, because without a title, Texas A and M isn't going toe have his title, either, because Alabama clinched the West and they'll play in the SEC championship game.

  • They will be evaluated very similarly without that tie breaker of the conference championship game.

  • But the Aggies did exactly what the selection committee was looking for, and their offense finally hit its stride.

  • They had over 300 rushing yards.

  • Kellen Mond accounted for three touchdowns.

  • That's what selection committee chair Gary Barta said they were looking for.

  • They were already impressed with the Texas A and M defense, and that conversation for that fourth spot was a great discussion last week.

  • We'll see if it continues to be a discussion, but they both played so well offensively, they're probably stay right where they are at this point.

  • All right?

  • Football.

  • Power Index.

  • Giving A and M at least a 78% chance to win each of its remaining two games.

  • Ole Miss in Tennessee.

  • Meanwhile, what are the other big questions facing this committee ahead of this week's rankings released?

  • Well, I think one of them is going to be, How high can the Big 12 rise?

  • I mean, we saw Iowa State play a great game against West Virginia, and they have just been on fire lately, and I think that they remind everyone how important an entire season is because you see them get so much better.

  • So can they jump.

  • Georgia?

  • Can they jump?

  • Cincinnati The Big 12 still needs a lot of chaos ahead of it to really get back in the playoff conversation, but it would be interesting to see how far they climb.

  • And can Indiana get back into the top 10?

  • Why does that matter?

  • Because it would be a top 10 win for Ohio State, going back to that argument about Texas A and M in Ohio State.

  • I mean, really interesting to see what they do with Coastal Carolina as well, and it was baffling to see Georgia rise in last week's ranking.

  • So the Bulldogs are an interesting story line.

  • Here is, well, this week's Top 25 ranking show.

  • Tuesday, seven PM Eastern on ESPN.

  • That's Heather Dinners with the insight.
