After Ohio State lost to Purdue, Notre Dame now has the best Strength of Record in the country. This is purely about accomplishment -- how difficult was it to achieve the record you have? Harder to go 7-1 with LSU's schedule than undefeated with Clemson or Alabama's so far.

A loss to Purdue didn't eliminate the Buckeyes, but Ohio State's chance to reach the playoff dropped 47 percentage points. Meanwhile no one improved its playoff outlook yesterday more than Michigan, who is now the fourth-most likely team to reach the CFP.

Mississippi State didn't throw it much on Saturday night but even when they did, it was enough to hurt them. Nick Fitzgerald threw two first-quarter interceptions that eventually doomed the Dawgs against the elite LSU defense. Their defense and run game is good; they have to find a way to be effective in the air moving forward.

No. 5 LSU comes out with the win it needed (19-3 over Mississippi State) to keep its College Football Playoff hopes intact but suffered a loss in the process, as a fourth quarter targeting call on All-American LB Devin White means the Tigers will be without their defensive leader for the first half of their next game: Alabama.
