Getting ground, most likely
No. 5 Notre Dame, 42-30 W at Pitt: This will count as a resume-boosting win for the committee (Pitt’s still 6-3). Do not be stunned if the Irish sneak into the leading 4 this week if Clemson (the only group to have really beaten ND) wins.
No. 21 Northwestern, 23-21 W vs. Penn State: It does not have to be really to count as a terrific win, and the Nittany Lions are still 7-3.
Holdin’ steady-ish
No. 6 Baylor, 31-24 W at Kansas State: The knock versus the Bears was schedule stamina, and this will not alter that. In committee eyes, 3-5 KSU is simply a bad group. New QB Jarrett Stidham looked great, nevertheless defense is a worry.
No. 20 Mississippi State, 31-13 W at Missouri: Beating 4-5 Mizzou is absolutely nothing unique. Putting the video game away in the 3rd and scoring 10 more points on a great defense than any individual else had? Exceptional in a Columbia rainstorm.
No. 22 Temple, 60-40 W at SMU: That’s a lot of points for an excellent defense to give up! And it were more distressing than that.
Maybe bad!

Goodbye
