Even some two-loss teams have potential to win a conference championship which would put them in the picture if some top 10 ranked teams falter. However, a victory won't come easy on Saturday, as Wisconsin welcomes an Iowa team fresh off a bashing of Ohio State to Camp Randall Stadium.

Featured games in the 3:30pm ET slot include (1) Georgia at (10) Auburn, (20) Iowa at (8) Wisconsin, Florida State at (4) Clemson, and MI at Maryland.

3 NOTRE DAME AT 7 MIAMI (7 P.M., ABC): In a blast from the past, two storied programs get together again with a lot at stake. A Top 25 matchup between No. 3 Notre Dame at No. 7 Miami harkens back to old days when these teams were bitter rivals and is the highlight game to watch today.

The best week of college football this this side of the playoff is upon us. Clemson, ranked No. 4, will take on unranked Florida State. The Trojans have been unpredictable, but they've also played one of the nation's most taxing schedules. There's no better way to convince the committee you're one of the four best teams in the country than by going out and beating one.

Other two-loss teams: It's hard to see a path to the playoff for USC, Michigan State, Ohio State, Penn State, Oklahoma State or anyone else with two losses already (except for Auburn).

Three top 10 matchups are on the slate along with four other top 25 matchups as Week 11 of the 2017 season promises to shake up the College Football Playoff rankings next week. There's a good chance that the AAC title game, which projects as a UCF-Memphis rematch, will decide which Group of 5 team goes to a big-time bowl.
