The team it picked to win the title has played in the title game seven times (1993, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2003, 2004, 2005), and won the title three times (1993, 1998, 1999).

FSU No. 1; Oregon Moves To 3rd In Computer;
Coaches Reward 'Bama With No. 1 For Beating FCS Team

Florida State and Ohio State remain 1-2 in the CCR Top 128. But somehow, voters in the Coaches' Poll believe Alabama's win over FCS member Western Carolina was more meaningful than the 'Noles fending off Boston College 20-17 for their 27th straight win.

The schedule for Week 13 is light on matchups of ranked teams, so beware of upsets.
Playoff Committee Top 25
The College Football Playoff selection committee's new top 25 now has a pair of 1-loss teams ahead of Florida State, the only undefeated program in the Power 5 conferences. Alabama jumped from 5th to 1st after handing Mississippi State its first loss, resulting in the Bulldogs' slide from 1st to 4th. Oregon remains 2nd while Florida State, winners of 26 straight, stays at No. 3. More puzzling is why the committee insists on ranking a 1-loss TCU two spots higher than the 1-loss Baylor team that the Horned Frogs lost to, and why they refuse to give the only other unbeaten team in the FBS - Marshall - any recognition at all in the Top 25. Meanwhile, a 3-loss Utah squad jumps 6 spots for beating a (then) 4-loss Stanford team in double-OT, but a 2-loss Wisconsin only rises 4 places for whacking a (then) 1-loss Nebraska by 35 points. Among the committee's top 10 are 4 schools from the SEC, 2 each from the Big 12 and PAC-12, and 1 each from the ACC and Big Ten. In all, that's not much different from the computer which also has 4 SEC teams in the top 10, 2 from the Big 12, and 1 each from the ACC, Big Ten, CUSA (Marshall) and PAC-12.
