The 2017 College Football Playoff contenders that the Playoff can do without

Wait, is it only Week 8?

On the latest episode of Wake Up, College Football, Dan and Richard address the following topics and questions:

  • Which of the following teams feel like they're the easiest to leave out the College Football Playoff ... so far? Wisconsin because of their not-so-impressive schedule? Penn State because of an offensive step down vs. Iowa and Northwestern? Washington because of a mystery loss to Arizona State and a less-than-stellar non-conference schedule? Any of the Group of Five teams making early noise, like San Diego State, South Florida, and UCF?
  • Where are the well-placed bye weeks the rest of the way? Can the Big 12 survive zero bye weeks during the back half of the schedule?
  • Is this year's Tennessee-Alabama matchup in Tuscaloosa going to be particularly brutal with Butch Jones on the hot seat (and the Vols struggling mightily) and the Tide stomping pretty much every SEC opponent they've faced thus far?
  • And our Week 8 picks!
  • And more!
