For the most part, college football Week 12 gave fans a humdrum slate of games in which not a lot of surprises took place.

The Crimson Tide are still No. 1 (by a lot). The Big Ten is still underwhelming. The Big 12 and Pac-12 are both going to need help to get into the playoff. Etc.

Don’t get me wrong, there were some big developments, and unlike last weekend we did see a top-10 team get upset as West Virginia was taken out.

Ohio State nearly got upset, too, and that’s as good a place to start as any looking at the biggest takeaways from the action in Week 12.
