After last weekend's much-hyped "Game of the Century" between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the LSU Tigers lived up to the hype, this weekend's slate of games featuring multiple games with big-time playoff implications has some extremely large shoes to fill. One of the two games that could have a lasting impact on the College Football Playoff picture is a clash between two SEC rivals: Auburn and Georgia. This game, which is on the DraftKings main slate of games, features two of the nation's most talented defenses, and with a total of just north of 40 points, it should be a true barn-burner. The Georgia Bulldogs slipped up against an unranked South Carolina Gamecocks team earlier this season, but they control their own destiny. If they win-out, including the SEC Championship game, they are practically guaranteed a berth in the College Football Playoff; however, one more falter could put a definitive end to their 2019-2020 College Football Playoff dreams. The other game with big-time playoff implications is going down in Oklahoma, where the Sooners play host to the undefeated Baylor Bears. The College Football Playoff ranking committee has shown the Baylor Bears very little respect by ranking them 13th in the nation entering this week, behind multiple 2-loss teams despite their status as 1 of the 5 remaining undefeated teams in FBS college football. On the other hand, Oklahoma will need to run the table in impressive fashion from here on out to make a case for their bid in the College Football Playoff this year. Following an upset loss to the Kansas State Wildcats, the Oklahoma Sooners will have their work cut out for themselves convincing the ranking committee that they deserve to be ranked as one of the four most-deserving teams in the nation. Whichever teams wins this battle atop the Big 12 standings will add a signature win to their resume, while the loser's hopes of making their way into the College Football Playoff this season will be all but dashed.
