There’s some legitimate college football playoff drama out there: The No. 4 USC Trojans were eliminated after losing the Pac-12 title game to No. 11 Utah Uses. Other teams in the top four of the leader board will have to survive Saturday to secure or consolidate their spots, but two powerhouses have the potential to advance to the semi-finals.

Playoff takeaway: Welcome back, Ohio State

After No. 4 USC lost to Utah in Friday night’s Pac-12 Championship Game, the No. 5 Buckeyes (11-1) should slide straight into the top four on Pick Day. The committee justified the move with Ohio State wins over Pennsylvania State and Notre Dame, with its only loss to a top four Michigan team. At this point he had a very low and unexpected chance that two-loss No. 6 Alabama would overtake Ohio State. That’s why fifth place was so important. The Buckeyes maintain their lead over The Tide. The Tide’s last hope is for undefeated TCU to suffer a convincing loss to K-State in the Big 12 title game, but that may not be enough.

USC’s Friday Night Flop was an all-too-familiar ending for Pac-12, as the selection committee watched Gaylord here in Grapevine, Texas, together in his room at a briefing at a Texan resort. They won’t reward three-loss conference champion Utah with a top-four finish. team. Utah should be back in the Rose Bowl, but that will be the league ceiling this year.

Caleb Williams used the left flank to his advantage and limped late in the game. It’s unclear if Williams was injured on a long run in the first quarter, but the USC QB hasn’t looked normal since. Williams hasn’t been able to get out of his pocket and doesn’t put much effort into his throws, and although the 20-year-old also rode a stationary bike on the sidelines, he remains in the game.

FIRST HALF: Utah 17, USC 17

It’s the Caleb Williams show in Vegas. Heisman’s frontrunner started his title match in the Conference on Friday night and interrupted it with a game against Notre Dame.

Williams started the game with a 10-yard run for a touchdown, completed the fourth and short alone, and dropped a 50-yard rainbow off his back foot to Taj Washington while jumping.

After the drive, he held the ball in a fake handoff, circled around one defender, armed another with a stiff arm, stole the ball 59 yards out, and outpaced himself. The run left Williams out of breath and he suffered a delayed game call for the next game. It didn’t matter:

Williams found Larryk Brown in the end zone six games later.

At halftime, Williams had 239 total yards and he scored two touchdowns. However, all of his stats and highlights weren’t enough to lead USC. The Utes responded with back-to-back touchdown drives late in the second quarter.
