Highlights from Week 12: Alabama remains atop the standings. Oklahoma and Clemson switch places. Michigan State jumps into the top 4.

ACC: North Carolina survives the Frank Beamer farewell. Boston College hangs with Notre Dame, costing the Irish some crucial style points late in the season.

B1G: Michigan State pulls off the win of the year (so far) at Ohio St, clearing their path to the playoff. Iowa remains unbeaten.

Big XII: Oklahoma State is unbeaten no more, as Baylor leaves Stillwater with a 10 point victory. Oklahoma barely hangs on against TCU, and now seems to be the conference’s best bet at a playoff bid.

PAC12: Does anybody in the PAC12 South want to win the conference? Utah loses again and finds itself in a 3 way tie in the south division with USC and UCLA. Stanford clinches the North.

SEC: LSU is in free-fall, dropping their 3rd straight with all 3 by double digits. Florida avoids national embarrassment by hanging on in overtime against a horrible Florida Atlantic team.

Elsewhere: Houston finally loses, and not to who you’d expect. UConn becomes bowl eligible with the win over the Cougars, and the Group of 5 is officially out of the running for a playoff berth.

Prediction for CFP top 4: Clemson, Alabama, Notre Dame, and…Iowa? Michigan State? Oklahoma? My formula says it’ll be Oklahoma, but Iowa wasn’t really unimpressive enough to get jumped by a team with a worse record. I’ll post the comparison of polls, scenarios going forward, and a week 13 preview next time.
