College Football Picks: Playoff-elimination possibilities

FILE – In this Oct. 8, 2016, file photo, Southern California coach Clay Helton leads his players onto the field before an NCAA college football game against Colorado in Los Angeles. A team with two losses has yet to make the College Football Playoff. At some point it will probably happen, but for now it is safe to assume that a second loss is a big problem. So for No. 11 USC and No. 13 Notre Dame, Saturday’s game is sort of a playoff eliminator. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong, File)
