My esteemed College Football Playoff guru, Heather Dinich, has ranked her 10 most impactful matchups remaining in the chase for the four playoff spots.
The best thing about November is that the pressure is turned up two or three notches, which invariably produces some head-turning upsets. Remember No. 5 Stanford's loss to unranked USC last season? What about No. 1 Kansas State falling to unranked Baylor in 2012? There was also No. 2 Oklahoma State stumbling against unranked Iowa State in 2011.
What under-the-radar games this season are we forgetting about that could potentially shake up the playoff race? Here are five to circle:
Kansas State at West Virginia, Nov. 20: The Mountaineers have been a tough out for everybody this season, especially at home. This game is on a Thursday night in Morgantown, and Kansas State will be coming off another steep test on the road two weeks earlier at TCU. West Virginia has scored 30 or more points in its past eight games, so the Wildcats better be ready to win a shootout.
