  • TCU wins the best game of the week, a thriller against Arkansas.
  • Arizona State downs Texas Tech in a shootout.
  • Auburn survives Sun Belt power Arkansas State with a one-touchdown win. Fans are not impressed.
  • Boise State picks up a big win over Washington State, its first of back-to-back games against Pac-12 opponents.

  • Alabama holds off Auburn late, securing its place in the SEC title game…

Next: Week 14 >>>

In the final weekend of the college football season, we have pure chaos. Oklahoma needs to beat rival Oklahoma State to notch a Playoff berth. Meanwhile, the other four major conferences have their title games. As you’ll see, one Power 5 winner with just one loss won’t be given a chance to play for it all.

Week 14 Highlights:

  • Clemson defeats Miami handily in the ACC title game, securing the No. 1 seed in the Playoff
  • Oklahoma finishes the regular season undefeated, beating Oklahoma State. The Sooners secure the No. 2 seed in the Playoff.
  • Stanford outlasts USC in the Pac-12 championship, and the Cardinal get the No. 3 seed in the Playoff.
  • Tennessee avenges an earlier loss to Alabama, securing a berth as the No. 4 seed in the Playoff.
  • Michigan, despite winning the Big Ten title and finishing 12-1, winds up No. 5, on the outside looking in.

Here are the final standings and final College Football Playoff rankings.

Here are the scores for the final weekend of the year:

Baylor 23, West Virginia 13
TCU 66, Kansas State 39
Oklahoma 51, Oklahoma State 29
