The Florida State Seminoles, Ohio State Buckeyes and Penn State Nittany Lions confirmed their College Football Playoff candidacies with wins on Saturday.
Florida State installed itself as the ACC favorite with its overtime road win over the Clemson Tigers.
However, FSU's triumph was not the most impressive victory of the weekend. Ohio State's last-second victory over Notre Dame moved the Buckeyes up one spot over FSU in the latest AP Top 25.
Penn State also moved up a position thanks to its home victory over the Iowa Hawkeyes. The shutout put some of Penn State's future opponents, including Ohio State.
