Standings are straightening themselves out and good teams are distancing themselves from bad teams.
Compared to the teams' meeting previous year, which aired opposite the Cubs clinching their first National League pennant since 1945, overnights increased 52% from a 4.5.
As for the other teams that have a case for No. 4, I'm not buying 8-0 Wisconsin. Their signature defense continues to perform, but the offense has been thriving with Jalen Hurts leading the way. But who is number one? The SEC title game is setting up to be a play-in game for the College Football Playoff with two undefeated teams in Alabama and Georgia. For example, national schedule rankings compiled by Jeff Sagarin and Cody Kellner have Notre Dame 12th and ninth, respectively, and Clemson fourth and 10th. The remaining three teams that make up the final four is anyone's guess. With two spots taken, arguments can be made for many teams. I would expect to see some 1 losses teams (Oklahoma and Ohio State) ahead of some undefeated teams (Wisconsin and Miami). Oklahoma has won 12 of the last 14 meetings, although Oklahoma State has two victories this decade. The U is back and Miami is 8-0. Then add the Notre Dame factor. Oklahoma and Oklahoma State are both 7-1 heading into this week's rivalry matchup. The list could continue, but the point is clear; picking four teams for playoffs is too hard.
In the game of playoff musical chairs, that would mean not just one power conference excluded but as many as three.
"At this point previous year, we had a lot of scenarios in play", Bowlsby said last week. Four teams is a bit too exclusive, and leaves fans wondering "what if?" about teams that just barely miss the cut.

The presenter, who was sacked from Fox News in April, is thought to have made settlements with at least six women since 2004. Meanwhile, O'Reilly had other things to say Monday about entities he believes have it out for him.
One team that surprisingly doesn't need to win any more games is Kentucky. But why even stop at eight?
With 16 teams involved, there will be no chance that a real contender misses out.
If you're a college football fan, this is what you want from the committee. It seems like a no brainer to expand the playoff system and rumors about doing so have been murmured about since the playoffs were first introduced in 2014.
Based on what we've seen so far this year, Georgia has the better resume. The Fighting Irish have only lost to Georgia, and they've got three victories against teams that are now ranked.
