The Conscience of Thoroughbred Racing


By Marc Lawrence, — We’re a few weeks away from conference championship games around college football, which means Week 11 can upset the apple cart in the upcoming College Football Playoff rankings.

There’s a big top-10 matchup “between the hedges” in Athens when No. 9 Ole Miss plays against two-time defending champion No. 2 UGA. Big 10 East foes No. 3 Michigan and No. 10 Penn State meet at Beaver Stadium in another game featuring two top-10 teams.

No. 5 Washington is the third of the five remaining undefeated teams to face a ranked opponent this week when No. 18 Utah visits Seattle for a game with significant ramifications in the Pac-12.

While there are several essential games across the nation, including No. 6 Oregon vs USC and No. 4 Florida State playing against its rival Miami, our focus this week is on three games with top-5 teams facing ranked opponents on the Week 11 slate.
