We take a look at what happened in college football every week and how it will affect the college football playoff race

It’s been a wild weekend in the SEC, as Florida and LSU both surprisingly tumbled as Alabama had to outlast Ole Miss in an optional defense shootout for years Meanwhile, Clemson has taken care of Miami impressively and has solidified his position atop the ACC The Big Ten won’t be back to play until next weekend, and this week’s roster of games isn’t the most compelling ever, but a prime-time top 3 showdown is sure to be a real eye-catcher.

Clemson – The Tigers are known to activate it in big games and they completely dominated Miami in a way that even the final score of 42-17 doesn’t accurately describe Trevor Lawrence and Travis Etienne shone as Clemson passed the Hurricanes 550 yards to 210, and the defense forced three interceptions and stifled what had been a powerful offense at this point in the season. We’ll see if Clemson continues to recover as the season progresses

Georgia – It was an inauspicious first half for the Bulldogs, who gave Tennessee a free touchdown in their first practice thanks to an errant snap and trailed 21-17 at halftime The second half was all of Georgia, however, as 27 unanswered points turned a close game into a blowout more indicative of the gap between the teams. Georgia have their biggest regular-season game in recent memory this week during their trip to Alabama

North Carolina – While Tar Heel’s defense certainly isn’t out of the ordinary, the high-octane attack we’ve been expecting burst onto the scene in a 56-45 win over Virginia Tech Circumstances allowed North Carolina to go No 5 (FIVE!) In AP Poll Imagine if we told you two years ago There’s no reason to think the Tar Heels slow down this Saturday when they travel to Tallahassee to face the unfortunate Seminoles

Florida – We thought we might have to wait a bit later in the season for Florida to be exposed, but the Gators dealt with that earlier than expected in a horrendous loss to Texas A&M You can have whatever offense you want, but if you can’t stop anyone, it’s only a matter of time before you bite the dust

Tennessee – We can’t imagine anyone who thinks the Vols had a realistic chance of toppling Georgia, and they ultimately fell short of the Bulldogs despite a 21-17 halftime lead. Tennessee would have you believe it’s on the rise, and it might be true They’re a long way from getting back to the top echelon of the SEC, however

LSU – If LSU fans had any fleeting hope that their team could repeat as national champions after their embarrassing Week 1 effort, Missouri quickly put that to bed in a 45-41 upset that left them saw display nearly 600 meters of attack on the Tigers train wreckage from a tusk We knew LSU would take a step back this season, but my god has it taken several The Tigers could be heading for a pretty tough year if they don’t improve not quickly and drastically, because there are a lot of better teams than Mizzou that remain in the calendar

Alabama and Georgia go head to head for SEC supremacy – We hate using clichés (who are we kidding, we love clichés!), but this massive Saturday night showdown is your classic unstoppable force versus still object paradox in football form Alabama has one of the most explosive offenses in the country, and you could make a compelling case that Georgia has the best defense in the country Is Mac Jones up for a defense of this caliber? Can Georgia do enough offensively to follow the scoreboard? We’ll find out tomorrow night It should be a dandy
