  1. Oklahoma–The Sooners have won 7 games in a row, including Saturday’s 45-24 romp over  Baylor. They have one of the best wide receivers in the country in Dede Westbrook (15 TDs) and veteran QB Baker Mayfield. They still have a climb to the top,  finishing the season against West Virginia and Oklahoma State. But don’t be stunned if they wind up as a Final Four team.
  2.  Washington State–The Rodney Dangerfield of college football, because of the way they started the season with a loss to FCS Eastern Washington and Boise State. But Coach Mike Leach’s team rolled over California 56-21 on Saturday for it’s 8th straight win. The Cougars are also unbeaten and in first place in the Pac-12 North.
  3. Ohio State–The Buckeyes definitely have their game faces on since the loss to Penn State. The Buckeyes have won three straight, including a 62-3 romp over Maryland on Saturday, which had been preceded by a…62-3 win over Nebraska last week. The rest of this article is available to subscribers only – to become a subscriber click here.
