A few games can swing the playoff probabilities not just for the two schools involved but also for other teams around the country.
Neil PaineAhead of this weekend's action, I wrote about which games will affect @FiveThirtyEight's College Football Playoff odds the most. I suppose No. 1 isn't too surprising - it's a matchup of undefeateds - though the spread on the game is also a whopping 18 pts!
Neil PaineKhris Davis has hit .247 each of the past 3 seasons. He went into today's game with a .247 this year, too. He's currently 0-1. Assuming he has 3 more ABs in this game, he must go *exactly* 1-for-3 the rest of this game to land on .247 again. DRAMA!
