Which one-loss team has the edge? So many pivotal games are still to come, and the temperature of the playoff change can be flipped and turned upside down any given week.
It’s Week 7 of the college football season with a truck load of intriguing matchups.
Each week of college football should be seen as a chapter, and the season the full novel. The only thing is, you cannot script drama this good.
A week after beating Colorado 59-56 in double overtime, California held on to beat Washington State 60-59 on Saturday in a game in which WSU quarterback Connor Halliday broke the NCAA passing record.
Washington (4-1, 0-1 Pac-12) missed its chance at a 5-0 start and a validating victory after four games where it was difficult to get a read on what kind of team the Huskies were.

Washington State rallied from a three touchdown deficit to beat Utah 28-27 on Saturday night largely because the Utes showcased many of the same problems that have plagued them since entering the Pac-12. The offense could not make plays in crunch time and the defense could not get enough stops when the game was on the line.

The Cougars open the season with their annual game at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field on Thursday night, hosting the Scarlet Knights in their first game after leaving the American Athletic Conference to join the Big Ten.
Forget much of what you know about college football. The chase for one of the four playoff spots begins this weekend with a handful of high-profile games.
