Time to reassess the SEC, ACC and Big Ten

Ivan Maisel, Brad Edwards and Chris Low share their thoughts on the weekend of chaos including LSU's win over Georgia and Michigan's dominance over Wisconsin. Plus, how did Week 7 shake up the Big Ten, ACC and SEC. Also, the crew answers #WalkOns and more.

The Pac-12 has just a 1 in 20 shot at putting a team in the playoff. Meanwhile, the SEC is still the most likely conference to get two teams in, but that number has dropped quite a bit over last few weeks.

The 10 teams most likely to reach the playoff, according to ESPN's Playoff Predictor. Georgia (27%) is still alive after its loss to LSU. For the Tigers it was not only the win but the way they won -- handily -- that put them on the board.

Ohio St. up to No. 2 in poll, LSU jumps to No. 5

The AP poll has a new look behind No. 1 Alabama, with Ohio State reaching No. 2, LSU jumping back to No. 5 and Michigan moving into the top 10 for the first time this season.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

Strength of Record top 10: strictly a measure a accomplishment this season. Achieving a 6-1 record with LSU's schedule was more difficult than going undefeated thus far with Clemson or Alabama's schedule.

No team's playoff position improved in Week 7 more than Michigan. The Wolverines are now the sixth most likely team to reach the playoff, narrowly ahead of Oklahoma.

And that'll do it here from Ann Arbor. Michigan outgained the Badgers 444-283, held them to 11 first downs, gave its reserves a lot of fourth-quarter work and then played "Jump Around" over the PA system in the waning minutes as a final indignity. Jim Harbaugh finally gets something like a big win that should appease frustrated Michigan fans — until next week against Michigan State in East Lansing.

Down 31 points late in the fourth quarter, it was surprising to see Wisconsin QB Alex Hornibrook reenter the game. But this 8-play scoring drive gave him 75 of his 100 passing yards tonight, his first bit of sustained offensive success against Michigan.

We're almost at the end of the third quarter and Wisconsin only has nine first downs and 192 yards of offense. Michigan is living up to its billing — and numbers — as the nation's best defense. At this point, it's hard to see how the Badgers could possibly score 14 points in the remaining time.

Those two Wisconsin penalties on the opening possession of the second half — defensive holding on third down and a personal foul on the punt — were huge in giving Michigan the boost it needed to finally get into the end zone. Without them, this is still a one-score game. Now the Badgers will need to rally from two scores down with a passing offense coming off its worst first-half performance in three years.

Wisconsin's 25 yards passing was its fewest in a first half since Nov. 28, 2015 vs Minnesota (also 25), according to ESPN Stats & Info. Alex Hornibrook and the Badgers were particularly bad against the Michigan blitz, going 0-for-2 with two sacks.

Joel Anderson ESPN 

Michigan stalling out on that drive and settling for another field goal is actually pretty symbolic of its offensive difficulties against Wisconsin tonight. Other than Shea Patterson's 81-yard run, the Wolverines have just 10 yards on their other 13 rushing attempts. Of course, heh, that 81-yard run still counts.
