College Football Week 11 Schedule: Ranked games will define division races

We’re well into November now, and every game seems to have conference or national title implications.

This week, it’s all about divisions across college football. Several intra-division games will determine which teams remain in the race for their conference title games — and therefore the College Football Playoff — and which ones are done with their championship hopes for another year.

In the Big Ten East, Ohio State and Michigan State are jockeying for second place behind Michigan. The Spartans have two losses, but can bring Ohio State down to that mark as well. Sparty’s only shot at a division title is to win out and see the Wolverines lose two of their final three regular season games; meanwhile, Ohio State can still clinch the division by winning out, thanks to their traditional final-weekend game against Michigan.

The SEC West gets a ranked game as well, though 16th-ranked Mississippi State is done in the divisional race at 2-3 in the conference. If they could knock off Alabama this week, that could open up a small window for LSU to sneak ahead, though that looks pretty unlikely.

Finally, the ACC Coastal division has been dominated by Clemson in recent years, but #17 Boston College (7-2, 4-1 ACC) is suddenly a threat. They could give the Tigers their first loss, which would give them a chance to win the division by running the table in the final two weeks. Otherwise, the Eagles are done with a loss this week.

Wisconsin fans will see the Badgers travel to Happy Valley for the first time since 2012. Although the teams are tied 9-9 all-time, Penn State has won five of the past six games between the two schools, dating back to 2007. Furthermore, the Badgers haven’t won on the road in this rivalry since 2003.
