The anguish was evident all over the face of Notre Dame coach Marcus Freeman. All the Fighting Irish needed was one more stop to beat Ohio State for the first time since 1936. Instead, they only had 10 players on the field. But it wasn't the only miscue they made. There was a dropped interception on the final drive.

Colorado fell out of The Associated Press college football poll after a resounding loss in one of the weekend's showcase games and the teams toward the top of the rankings were shuffled and tightened. Six teams received first-place votes. Georgia is still where it started at No. 1 but down to 55 first-place votes. Michigan remained No. 2 and got a first-place vote. Texas stayed at No. 3 with two first-place votes. Ohio State moved up two spots to No. 4 and got a first-place vote after beating Notre Dame. Colorado went from 19th to out after losing 42-7 to Oregon.
