Kiper 'not surprised' by Nick Bosa's decision to withdraw (1:47)

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Ohio State star defensive end Nick Bosa intends to withdraw from school to focus on his rehabilitation from core muscle surgery and begin preparing for the 2019 NFL draft. Bosa suffered the injury in the third quarter of Ohio State's Sept. 15 win over TCU and underwent surgery Sept. 20 with a specialist in Philadelphia. Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer says in a statement that he "was hopeful Nick would be able to return to play again for us," but Meyer wishes Bosa well as he gets "100 percent healthy and ready for his next chapter." Bosa is widely projected as a top-5 pick in the 2019 draft.

The 10 teams most likely to reach the playoff, according to ESPN's Playoff Predictor. Georgia (27%) is still alive after its loss to LSU. For the Tigers it was not only the win but the way they won -- handily -- that put them on the board.

Ohio St. up to No. 2 in poll, LSU jumps to No. 5

The AP poll has a new look behind No. 1 Alabama, with Ohio State reaching No. 2, LSU jumping back to No. 5 and Michigan moving into the top 10 for the first time this season.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

Strength of Record top 10: strictly a measure a accomplishment this season. Achieving a 6-1 record with LSU's schedule was more difficult than going undefeated thus far with Clemson or Alabama's schedule.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

No team's playoff position improved in Week 7 more than Michigan. The Wolverines are now the sixth most likely team to reach the playoff, narrowly ahead of Oklahoma.
