5. Michigan Wolverines (7-0) at Michigan State Spartans (2-5)

It has been amazing to see how far the Spartans have fallen in the 2016 football season. They are currently 2-5 and sinking fast. They will now have the pleasure of trying to beat the second ranked team in the country in the Michigan Wolverines on Saturday. Good luck Michigan State.

However, we all know how weird rivalry games can be in college football. I’m still trying to convince myself that’s why Kentucky has played Louisville so tough the past few years. Either way, a Spartan win would be huge for the Cardinals.

Let’s say that Michigan somehow get’s beat. I’m not saying it will happen, but if it did happen, then Louisville would move back into a top four team in America. Not only would it be a huge win for Louisville, but it would mean that Ohio State and Michigan both have a loss to unranked teams.

Penn State is currently ranked, but they weren’t when they beat the Buckeyes.

It would still be extremely hard for the committee to overlook a Louisville team with one road loss to Clemson.
