The battle between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama is the headliner, but it's not the only huge game in Week 11. When No. 5 Penn State heads to Minneapolis to take on No. 13 Minnesota this week, the game will basically serve as a playoff game, with the loser likely out.

College football rankings: Slumping Syracuse has gone from top 25 to Bottom 25 in same season

  College football rankings: Slumping Syracuse has gone from top 25 to Bottom 25 in same season Anybody can rank the best teams in the country, only The Bottom 25 ranks the worstThis led to some hype leading to the 2019 season. With Clemson being the clear No. 1 in the ACC and no obvious choice to be No. 2, many pundits chose the team that went 10-3 last season to be that team despite a lot of important losses. Syracuse opened 2019 at No. 22 in the preseason AP Top 25 and moved up a spot to No. 21 after a narrow 24-0 win over Liberty in its season-opener. The next week Syracuse lost at Maryland 63-20 and fell out of the poll entirely.

Lines you need to know

No. 1 LSU at No. 2 Alabama (-6): I would say this serves as a playoff game, but I think we all know that unless the loser is blown out, they'll still be in the playoff race. So let's call it an SEC West playoff game instead, as the loser will be at a serious disadvantage in the division race. It's been a surprising, resurgent year for LSU, but as has always been the case, LSU will be judged by what it does against Alabama.

No. 5 Penn State at No. 13 Minnesota (+6.5): Sure, it's Week 11, and Minnesota is undefeated. We all knew this would be the case before the season started because it's as predictable as a sunrise. Seriously, this is a major game for both teams. Penn State can't afford a loss if it wants to win the Big Ten East and possibly the Big Ten. Minnesota can nearly wrap up the Big Ten West with a win, and also prove to those who remain skeptical about its start that it's for real.

AP Top 25: Navy gives AAC 4 teams, 3rd-most by conference

  AP Top 25: Navy gives AAC 4 teams, 3rd-most by conference Navy moved into The Associated Press college football poll at No. 25, giving the American Athletic Conference four ranked teams, more than all but the Big Ten and the Southeastern Conference. With nine ranked teams off this weekend, including four of the top five, there was little movement throughout the AP Top 25 presented by Regions Bank. LSU is No. 1 for a second consecutive week and Alabama is No. 2. The Tigers and Crimson Tide on Saturday will play the first regular-season 1-2 game since the same two did it in 2011.Navy joins fellow AAC members No. 17 Cincinnati, No. 19 Memphis and No. 23 SMU in the Top 25.

Check out the complete college football schedule for 2020, which begins Aug. No. 21 Navy at No. 16 Notre Dame (- 11 ): The Midshipmen have righted the ship after a disappointing 2018 season No. 4 Alabama at Mississippi State (+21): Oh Mississippi State , you're going to have a bad, bad Saturday.

Week 3 in college football just wrapped up, but it's never too early to look forward to Week 4. When you do, you'll notice a top 10 out-of-conference matchup between two Oklahoma State at No. 12 Texas (-6.5): Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger has tossed 11 touchdowns , is without an

No. 18 Iowa at No. 16 Wisconsin (-9): Another big game in the Big Ten, but not with the same stakes as Penn State and Minnesota. Both Wisconsin and Iowa find themselves two games behind Minnesota in the West Division. Both are still in the race and could get to Indianapolis for the Big Ten Championship. Only one of them will be able to say that when this game ends. It's your classic Loser Leaves Town match.

More games of note

Maryland at No. 3 Ohio State (-44): Ohio State is a 44-point favorite in a conference game and I can't decide if it says more about the quality of Ohio State this season, or where Maryland is at the moment. I lean more toward Ohio State, but it's likely a combination of both. Anyway, conference expansion has made the Big Ten a much more competitive football league.

No. 4 Clemson at NC State (+32): While not nearly as large a favorite as Ohio State, Clemson once again finds itself as a considerable favorite in an ACC game. It's a weekly occurrence as there isn't anybody in the ACC that should be capable of hanging with the Tigers. I wonder what the spread would be if Maryland were still in the ACC.

College Football Playoff: Rankings put wet blanket on Alabama-LSU 'Game of the Century'

  College Football Playoff: Rankings put wet blanket on Alabama-LSU 'Game of the Century' Based on the first CFP ranking, it's clear some of the committee took issue with the Crimson Tide's overall lack of quality wins to this point.The 13-member playoff committee did manage to pick Alabama's upcoming opponent, LSU (8-0, 4-0 SEC), at No. 2 in its first rankings of the season, behind fellow undefeated Ohio State (8-0, 5-0 Big Ten) at No. 1. Meanwhile, the Crimson Tide (8-0, 5-0 SEC) remained in the current Playoff field at No. 3, ahead of fourth-place Penn State (8-0, 5-0 Big Ten). Defending national champion Clemson (9-0, 6-0 ACC) was the first-out at No. 5, with Georgia (7-1, 4-1 SEC) rounding out the coveted Top 6.

Missouri at No. 6 Georgia (-14.5): The Bulldogs picked up a massive win against Florida over the weekend, and now find themselves in control in the SEC East. Of course, we've seen plenty of instances in college football history where a team wins a big game and then falls asleep a week later. The Dawgs will have to avoid the trap here against Mizzou.

Iowa State at No. 9 Oklahoma (-13.5): The Sooners had the weekend off after losing to Kansas State last week, and it feels like the world has moved on from them as a playoff contender. That's not a smart way to view the Sooners. They're very much in the picture, but they can't afford another loss. Iowa State will be a tough test.

No. 11 Baylor at TCU (+1): How long will Baylor have to remain undefeated before it cracks the top 10? It's currently behind a two-loss Florida team in the AP Poll. It'll be interesting to see what the playoff committee thinks of the Bears this week. Wherever they're ranked, the more significant concern will be a tough road trip to take on TCU this Saturday.

East Carolina at No. 23 SMU (-24.5)

Alabama QB Tagovailoa carted off field vs Mississippi State .
STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was carted off the field after being dragged down by two Mississippi State defenders, a tackle that left him favoring his right leg and hip. Fourth-ranked Alabama was leading 35-7 with 3:01 left in the first half when Tagovailoa, who had surgery on a sprained right ankle nearly a month ago, was injured. Mac Jones replaced Tagovailoa, who did not join the team on the sideline after halftime. The latest injury appeared to be different from the ankle sprain. The hard hit knocked off Tagovailoa’s helmet and left him with a bloody nose.
