The Cardinal got a nice blowout win over Colorado and got some national help with teams like LSU, Michigan State and TCU losing. They moved a little bit closer to the coveted top four.

8. Notre Dame

10. Florida

11. Utah

The Utes kept their Playoff hopes alive with a tough win at Washington. They haven't looked great the past few weeks, but they have been doing enough to stay afloat in the national race.

I have been reluctant to rank the Bruins, but it's impossible not to at this point. They showed that they can at least blow out a bad team on the road this week. They get a nice "I'm not sure exactly how good either of these ranked teams actually are" showdown Saturday against Washington State.

The Cougars have come a long way from losing to Portland State. They have balanced out their air raid offense with an underrated tough defense and could easily end the season ranked near the Top 10 if they play as well as they can.
