Week 12 Power Rankings (NCAA)

1. Alabama Crimson Tide- They were still dominant even with Tua Tagovailoa not looking like his usual self last week against Mississippi State. He threw a touchdown, another interception and only threw for 165 yards but the defense came to his aid and handled business pitching a shutout for the second straight game and winning ten or more games for the 11th straight season. Two games left and they will head into the SEC Championship Game against the Georgia Bulldogs undefeated it’s appearing to be.

2. Clemson Tigers– For the fourth straight season, they will be playing in the ACC title game and they were very dominant against a very injury-riddled Boston College offense. The Eagles had only 113 yards of offense and nine yards rushing and although their defense forced two turnovers, they couldn’t solve Clemson’s stingy defense which is playing well and clicking at just the right time. Trevor Lawrence loves the road and he’s thrown 12 touchdown passes and two picks in opponents stadiums.

3. Notre Dame Fighting Irish– No Ian Book, no problem. Brandon Wimbush came back and fill in for the star quarterback and threw three touchdown passes. Dexter Williams was the true star of this game rushing for 200 yards against Florida State. It’s a fun time to be a Notre Dame fan at the moment and this game today at Yankee Stadium against Syracuse, they can’t take lightly.

4. Michigan Wolverines– Another week, another win and they still sit atop the Big Ten East in first place. In their game last week against Rutgers, at least they scored because teams have had their share of troubles pushing the ball down the field on this defense. They have their tilt with Indiana today, then next week is the game we will hear all about next week. Ohio State, Columbus with the division and a trip to Indianapolis on the line for the chance to play in the Big Ten title game.

5. Georgia Bulldogs– When their ground game starts up, there’s no stopping it and they can take over any game just like we saw them do last week against Auburn. D’Andre Swift had 186 yards rushing and Elijah Holyfield added 93 as part of a team total of 303 yards on the ground. Two games to go and December 1st will be here.
