There was a lot to unpack after the wildest weekend of the college football season.
Alabama’s stumbling performance at Tennessee casts questions on how good this Crimson Tide team is and whether there are legitimate concerns about the trajectory of the program after a rash of penalties and questionable decisions by Nick Saban.
The playoff race is as unpredictable as ever with more contenders for the semifinals and more teams capable of winning two games and the national title if they are able to make the field.
MIchigan and TCU were two of the biggest winners of the weekend. How do these two unbeatens look heading into the second half?
Dan Wolken and Paul Myerberg address all these storylines and look ahead to the biggest matchups in Week 8 during the latest version of College Football Fix, the USA TODAY Sports weekly podcast that releases every Tuesday during the season.
