After Ohio State lost to Purdue, Notre Dame now has the best Strength of Record in the country. This is purely about accomplishment -- how difficult was it to achieve the record you have? Harder to go 7-1 with LSU's schedule than undefeated with Clemson or Alabama's so far.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

A loss to Purdue didn't eliminate the Buckeyes, but Ohio State's chance to reach the playoff dropped 47 percentage points. Meanwhile no one improved its playoff outlook yesterday more than Michigan, who is now the fourth-most likely team to reach the CFP.

Most important takeaway for each top 25 team

Alabama dominated again, while the Wolverines look like CFP contenders after taking down Michigan State. Ohio State? Not so much. What else have we learned in Week 8?

Chris Low ESPN Senior Staff Writer 

Tua Tagovailoa was night and day better this week in practice in the way he moved around on his strained right knee, according to several in the Alabama program, and that's the way it's played out so far in what's already a commanding Alabama 28-0 lead over Tennessee. The biggest difference for Tagovailoa since straining his knee two weeks ago against Arkansas has been his confidence and not being hesitant with the knee after the initial scare. Alabama has now scored on 43 of 57 Tagovailoa-led drives this season.

Ivan Maisel ESPN Senior Writer 

Could be that Alabama is fired up because former Tide defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt is the Tennessee head coach. Could be that Tennessee got Alabama's attention with an upset win last week at Auburn. Or it could be that Alabama will always be ready to play Tennessee. Whatever it is, Alabama came out of the locker room on fire. Four possessions, four TDs in the first 11:29 of the game.

Ivan Maisel ESPN Senior Writer 

Alabama has scored three touchdowns. Tennessee has had six offensive snaps.
