After a Week 9 that saw several undefeated teams suffer their first losses, let's ask some questions:

• How did Clemson survive its trip to Tallahassee, especially against Florida State RB Dalvin Cook, who's playing like the best possible version of Dalvin Cook?

• What ultimately wasn't enough for Nebraska to get by Wisconsin on the road?

• After its mostly comfortable win at Michigan State, is there anything left to worry about with Michigan?

• Where was Utah able to take it to Washington in its close loss to the Huskies?

• Can we still trust Louisville after another close call, this time against Virginia?

• What makes Northwestern secretly decent and why might it be okay to downgrade Ohio State as a playoff contender?

• How big is Texas's win over Baylor, both as it relates to the Foreman brothers putting up huge yards and Charlie Strong's job security?

... and much more!
