College Football Podcast: The Week 10 Preview


Athlon Sports' Braden Gall and Mitch Light break down the first Playoff Committee Rankings and preview Week 10 in college football.

- Should Texas A&M be ranked ahead of Washington and should "margin of victory" be a factor for the committee?

- What did the committee say about the Big 12 and Pac-12? Is there any margin for error for Washington?

- Is there a path to the Playoff for Louisville or were the Cardinals the biggest losers in the first rankings release?

- Is Penn State overrated? Is West Virginia underrated?

The guys also look ahead to Week 10. Alabama heads down to face LSU and Nebraska travels to Columbus to battle Ohio State in the week's top matchups. A host of second-tier games could play a big role in the national landscape however including Wisconsin at Northwestern, Florida at Arkansas, Iowa at Penn State, UCLA at Colorado, Virginia Tech-Duke and more.

Each week, we go head-to-head with our top picks against the spread.

Picks Against the Spread Standings:

1. Mitch: 22-22-1 (3-2 LW)

2. Braden: 18-26-1 (2-3 LW)
