Alabama is No. 1 for the 15th time in 28 rankings.

In Ohio State's case, the body-of-work argument was strong enough to overcome being bumped from the Big Ten title chase by Penn State, a team the Buckeyes had lost to in a close game at Happy Valley. There were no changes in the top 10 of the committee rankings from last week, the first time in the five-history of the playoff format that the top 10 has held serve from one week to another.

Big 12 fans will disagree, but MI at 12-1 looks like a good bet to sail into the playoff - especially if Notre Dame finishes unbeaten, therefore making the Wolverines' only loss a one-score game in the opener at South Bend.

No. 3 Notre Dame is making a trip to the Bronx where it will take on an upstart Syracuse program. The committee showed even more respect to the Group of 5 this week by including Mountain West teams Utah State and Boise State at No. 23 and No. 25, respectively. Mississippi State 22. Northwestern 23. The night slate features a couple of intriguing games, including Cincinnati at UCF, Arizona at Washington State, San Diego State-Fresno State and Iowa State at Texas.

This would be Notre Dame's first loss of the season.

Punahou three-star linebacker Marist Liufau announced his commitment to Notre Dame Wednesday following his official visit this weekend where he picked up an offer from the Irish.
