For the second straight week Notre Dame's chance to reach the playoff dropped more than anyone else's despite earning a win. That the Fighting Irish only beat Vanderbilt by 5 at home lowered FPI's opinion of them and hurt their projections going forward.

Taylor Cornelius has only four completions, Justice Hill has just 21 rushing yards and yet Oklahoma State is in total control against Boise State. The reason? Defense and special teams. The Cowboys have sacked Boise QB Brett Rypien four times and blocked a punt that led to a touchdown.

Boise State senior QB Brett Rypien has been methodical. He's completed 13 of first 17 passes. Broncos in control in Stillwater.

Boise State starting senior CB Tyler Horton is out with an undisclosed injury against Oklahoma State. Horton became the fifth player in FBS history to score two touchdowns off fumble recoveries in one game in Boise's opener. The onus will be on sophomore Jalen Walker to fill his spot against the explosive Cowboys.

ESPN reporters pick Week 3's biggest games

Can TCU stamp itself as a serious playoff contender? Does Auburn or LSU earn a huge early SEC win? Our experts pick those Week 3 games and more.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

FPI significantly upgraded its opinion of Georgia and Penn State after expectation exceeding road wins from each. That has led to improved projections and playoff forecast for both. Meanwhile it thinks less of Notre Dame after a narrow win over Ball State.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

Boise State has a 9% chance to reach the playoff, per ESPN's Playoff Predictor. The Broncos' chances would improve to 19% with a win at Oklahoma State next weekend and would reach 56% if they win out (including Mountain West Championship Game).
