Undefeated college football teams in 2017
No one left the undefeated ranks in Week 12, as the four remaining perfect programs all won in Week 12.
The following undefeated teams are listed by their College Football Playoff rankings:
No. 1 Alabama (11-0)
Week 13 opponent: No. 6 Auburn (9-2)
Forecast: Alabama handled Mercer, winning 56-0. In the final game of the regular-season fans get the Iron Bowl, as the Tide travel to Auburn, which throttled previously unbeaten Georgia in Week 11. A win for Alabama earns a spot in the SEC Championship game against Georgia on Dec. 2 in Atlanta.
No. 3 Miami (Fla.) (10-0)
Week 13 opponent: Pitt (4-7)
Forecast: The turnover-forcing Hurricanes have picked up their two biggest wins of the season in the last two weeks – a 28-10 win over then-No. 13 Virginia Tech and a 41-8 win over No. 3 Notre Dame last Saturday. The Hurricanes were able to handle Virginia, despite the Cavaliers giving Miami a close game through three quarters. Miami has clinched the ACC Coastal and ends its regular-season schedule with a road game at Pittsburgh, meaning the 'Canes could enter the ACC Championship Game undefeated. As one of three Power Five teams that hasn't suffered a loss this season, Miami likely controls its own destiny for the College Football Playoff if it's able to beat Clemson for the conference title.
No. 5 Wisconsin (11-0)
Week 13 opponent: Minnesota (5-6)
Forecast:. The Badgers, who clinched the Big Ten West last week, are on the edge of the College Football Playoff rankings and finish their season on the road against Minnesota, before making another appearance in the Big Ten Championship Game.
No. 15 UCF (10-0)
Week 13 opponent: at USF (9-1)
Forecast: UCF continued its undefeated run with a win over Temple on the road, beating the Owls 45-19. The Knights host South Florida to close out the regular season. That Nov. 24 finale against the Bulls is sure to be a high-scoring affair between two of the top offenses in the AAC.
