13.) Indiana

Record: 4-0.

Make Playoff: 1.8 percent.

Reach National Championship: 0.5 percent.

Win Title: 0.1 percent.

247Sports’ Take: Indiana took care of business with a 24-0 win over Michigan State, but the real test approaches Saturday at noon ET on FOX against No. 3 Ohio State (3-0). The No. 9 Hoosiers could take control of the Big Ten East with a victory, but a final-three-game stretch against Maryland (2-1, Nov. 28), No. 10 Wisconsin (2-0, Dec. 5) and Purdue (2-1, Dec. 12) is no cakewalk.

12.) Northwestern

Record: 4-0.

Make Playoff: 3.5 percent.

Reach National Championship: 0.8 percent.

Win Title: 0.2 percent.

247Sports’ Take: Similar to Indiana, Northwestern has a chance to make some serious noise in the Big Ten West with a 3:30 p.m. ET game Saturday on ABC against the No. 10 Badgers. The No. 19 Wildcats enter a top-20 matchup off three straight one-score wins, most recently including a 27-20 win at Purdue to keep the team unbeaten.

11.) USC

Record: 2-0.

Make Playoff: 4.3 percent.

Reach National Championship: 0.8 percent.

Win Title: 0.2 percent.

247Sports’ Take: A win is a win, but USC has needed the final minutes of the past two games to secure comeback victories against Arizona State (28-27, Nov. 14) and Arizona (34-30, Nov. 14). With a six-game regular season, the No. 20 Trojans need style points, looking for stronger play in Saturday’s 10:30 p.m. ET game on ESPN at Utah (0-0).

10.) Texas A&M

Record: 5-1.

Make Playoff: 8.6 percent.

Reach National Championship: 2.2 percent.

Win Title: 0.6 percent.

247Sports’ Take: Texas A&M’s momentum is on hold as the Aggies remain sidelined due to a coronavirus postponement of Saturday’s game against Ole Miss. Next Saturday, Nov. 28, vs. LSU (2-3), a 7 p.m. ET game on ESPN, is next for No. 5 A&M.
