For the first time in the committee’s history, the top-10 teams remained the same.Alabama is the unquestioned No. 1 team in the country, while Clemson, Notre Dame and Michigan round out the top four. Georgia comes in at No. 5, while the Oklahoma Sooners remain at No. 6.For the Sooners fans questioning why Michigan and Georgia, both with one loss, are ahead of Oklahoma, the committee chair revealed the committee’s thinking.According to committee chairman Rob Mullens, Oklahoma fields one of the best offenses in college football. However, the Sooners’ defense leaves much to be desired.Here’s what he had to say via 247Sports.“We’re very aware that they have one of the most dynamic offenses in the country, a great quarterback and lots of great skill position players. But we’re (also) very aware that they’re having defensive struggles and that’s a continued deficiency and something that goes into the evaluation.”Oklahoma’s offense might be the only one in the country that can hang with Alabama. But if the defense doesn’t improve, the Sooners might not even win their own conference.With two weeks of regular season play left, anything can happen.[247Sports]last_img read more

They working with the new coach from the last season, he made some changes, they play more aggressively in defense, which is different in each match. Often they try to defend in system 3: 3 or offensive 6: 0. This is a very danger opponent.  We have to play even better than against Montpellier.  – said Szmal.Match will start on 18.30 hrs. read more
