    3 Miami (FL) 1.1639 5 0 6 32 34   Welcome home to FisterRatings.com. The link on the left to my bowl projections is now active. For the first time this season, Alabama is officially the #1 team on this page. The Crimson Tide now have the #41 schedule, helped by Florida State winning a couple of games. Bama and #4 Georgia are the class of the SEC, and it doesn't appear to be close at this point. They would meet in the SEC title game. Penn State jumps to #2. The Nittany Lions are about to be tested in a big way, as they host #18 Michigan before visiting #9 Ohio State and #10 Michigan State over the next three weeks. #13 Wisconsin joins Penn State as an unbeaten contender from the Big Ten. To this point, the Badgers only have the #113 schedule. #3 Miami (FL) is now the highest-ranked ACC team, having escaped Georgia Tech, while #6 Clemson drops three spots after losing at Syracuse. #7 TCU's opening game with Jackson State continues to drag down their schedule, and this week's game with Kansas will not help. The Horned Frogs visit #25 Oklahoma on Nov. 11, and the Big 12 has a championship game this season. I believe TCU makes the playoffs if they win out. The highest-ranked Pac-12 team is now #12 USC, with #14 Washington and #27 Washington State both falling in big upsets by Arizona State and California. The Group of Five also had a key upset, with #16 San Diego State dropping eight spots after losing to Boise State. #5 UCF remained unbeaten with a win over East Carolina, but their schedule took a hit. The Knights visit #22 Navy this week. UCF's rival, #31 USF, is also unbeaten, but the Bulls currently have just the #128 schedule out of 130 FBS teams. UCF hosts USF on Nov. 24. #8 Memphis moves up 14 spots after beating Navy. The Tigers have already lost to UCF. Looking ahead, my initial projected playoff teams are Alabama, Miami (FL), TCU, and Ohio State. That includes my projection of remaining games. I reserve the right to change my four teams several times going forward.
