The latest Top 25 AP Poll for college football has been released and don’t look now, but several teams that were nowhere near the Vegas odds board favorites to capture the 2017 NCAA title are coming on strong. It is going to be a December to remember for many college teams, but in the end, only four will be postseason bound.

The U is back

The Miami Hurricanes were not on anyone's list in terms of fighting for the No. 1 spot in the land back in August. Now they are showing everyone that they mean business.

The Hurricanes thrashed a very good Notre Dame squad last night by the final score of 41-8.

Miami dominated this game from start to finish, and that has not happened to the Irish this entire season. Now, do the Hurricanes deserve the No. 2 position? That is debatable, but one thing you cannot deny is that they are definitely a Top 5 team heading into the final stretch of the season.

Miami’s Malik Rosier threw a touchdown and ran for another as the 9-0 Hurricanes jumped up to claim the No. 2 position in the latest NCAA AP Poll. This game was supposed to be one of the best on the docket Saturday night, however, it turned out to be one of the most lopsided.

The Hurricanes clinched their first trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game on Saturday and fans of The U are basking in the glow.

They now will face the Clemson Tigers in the ACC Title game on December 2. The winner of that matchup will most likely punch their ticket to the College Football Playoffs.

War Eagle

The Alabama Crimson Tide are the best team in college football once again - but to win another title this year they are going to have to win the Iron Bowl against rival Auburn, and that won’t be easy.

The Tigers are the real deal and when they host Alabama on Thanksgiving weekend at Jordan–Hare Stadium, that place is going to be rocking. The Tigers upset the entire apple cart with a win over Alabama, and I think they will.
