With Rivalry Week being all that's left of the 2016 regular season, let's take a few dozen minutes and ask some questions:

• Is anyone actually beating Alabama? No, but seriously.

• With Michigan and Ohio State struggling on offense in the cold (aren't they supposed to be used to it?) did the B1G peak in October?

• What gave Colorado a burst at the end to get past a tough Washington State team?

• What's USC QB Sam Darnold's grandfather's name?

• Where did LSU go so wrong in a very winnable game against Florida in Baton Rouge?

• Is Notre Dame losing so many games late by so few points a good or bad thing?

• What's unexpected about how thoroughly Houston trounced Louisville on Thursday night?

• Can anyone stop Dede Westbrook, Baker Mayfield and the Oklahoma offense, and is that someone Oklahoma State in the upcoming Bedlam game?

...and much more!
