Even in overtime, most of the elite teams in the College Football Playoff race followed the script in what was one of the less chaotic college football Saturdays this season. Each week, though, impacts how the 12 members of the selection committee will view each résumé to determine the first ranking on Nov. 1.Heres a look at whose stock improved in Week 7, and whose dropped:STOCK UPWest Virginia: The Mountaineers were facing some skepticism after four straight home wins against unranked opponents, but went a long way in validating their position as a contender for the Big 12 title with an impressive road win at Texas Tech. The Mountaineers improved to 5-0 for the first time since 2012 and found a way to slow the Texas Tech offense. West Virginia held the Red Raiders to just 17 points -- their fewest in a game over the past two seasons -- and Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes failed to throw multiple passing touchdowns for the first time this season.Alabama: In their second straight road win over a ranked SEC team, the Tide somehow looked even better in their win over Tennessee. It was the most complete game theyve played to date, and this time the secondary showed improvement, adding to another outstanding overall defensive performance. Alabama held Tennessee to 163 yards, returned an interception for a TD, had three sacks and 10 tackles for loss, and stifled quarterback Joshua Dobbs.Big Ten West: Wisconsin was a highlight even in defeat, pushing No. 2 Ohio State to overtime, but the Badgers now need help to win the division as Nebraska is still undefeated. The Cornhuskers escaped a tricky Indiana team, but overall it was a good day for the entire division. Minnesota won. Iowa won. Northwestern won. Even Illinois won. Every team in the division but Purdue and Wisconsin won this weekend.Group of 5: It was another good weekend for both Boise State and Western Michigan, two teams that are still undefeated and in contention for a New Years Six Bowl as the highest-ranked Group of 5 conference champion. Western Michigan, ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 this week for the first time in school history, beat Akron 41-0 and is the front-runner in the MAC. Boise State beat Colorado State and remains the team to beat in the Mountain West. Houston survived a scare from Tulsa, but still needs Navy to lose twice to win the AAC West Division.STOCK DOWNACC Coastal: Now that every team in the Coastal Division has at least two overall losses, the ACC and its fans should hope theres NOT an upset in the title game. Its one thing to have a one-loss Virginia Tech or Miami run the table and upend the Tigers in the title game, but its another to have a two-loss league champ with a weak strength of schedule as the leagues top team. One week after beating North Carolina on the road, Virginia Tech lost to Syracuse on Saturday. Meanwhile, Miami followed its one-point loss to Florida State with a home loss to North Carolina. Wait, what? The Coastal chaos is in full swing, leaving the division up for grabs and without an elite team.SEC East: Much like the ACCs Coastal Division, the SEC should hope there isnt an upset in its conference title game, because its extremely likely the winner of the East will have two losses. Florida is the only team left in the division with just one overall loss, but the Gators still have to play at Arkansas and at LSU. Tennessee already has two losses, but the Vols own the head-to-head tiebreaker over Florida. Neither team looks capable of pulling of an epic upset in the SEC title game, but the entire East has fallen over the past two weeks along with Tennessee. And thats not even mentioning Georgia, which lost to Vandy.Clemson offense: The Tigers lost three fumbles in NC State territory, and quarterback Deshaun Watson threw the first pick-six of his career in what was a too-close-for-comfort win in Death Valley. Florida State in 2014 taught us that winning convincingly matters to a point (no pun intended). An undefeated ACC champ should be in, even if it hasnt dominated lesser opponents. But dont assume a perfect record means No. 1. Clemsons offense will have to be more efficient on Oct. 29, when it travels to Florida State -- if the Tigers want to finish undefeated, theyre going to have to stop turning the ball over. But an ugly win is still a good win for Clemson, and its worth noting that even a loss in Tallahassee wont keep the Tigers out of the ACC championship game. Even a one-loss ACC champ would likely still get in the CFP.Ole Miss: The Rebels have officially been eliminated from the national spotlight. After losing to Florida State and Alabama, the Rebels were a long shot to win the SEC West, but they were clinging to hope -- until they lost to Arkansas. Melvin Frazier Jersey . 9. Price, heading to the 2014 Olympics for Canada, was named the First Star after posting wins in three starts with a 1.00 goals-against average and a .971 save percentage. Troy Brown Jr. Jersey . -- Hunter Smith scored the winner with just 12 seconds remaining in the third period as the Oshawa Generals edged the host Sarnia Sting 5-4 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League action. http://www.cheapjerseysauthenticnba.us/michael-porter-jr-jersey/ .J. -- Pitcher Carl Pavano is retiring after 14 major league seasons. Jalen Brunson Jersey . The showiest items on Calgarys lot were forwards Mike Cammalleri and Lee Stempniak. Both will be unrestricted free agents this summer. Issuf Sanon Jersey . Carey Price didnt, but he still came out on top against one of his rivals for the No. 1 job at the Sochi Games. The Anahim Lake, B.C., native was stellar in making 39 saves in his home province and Lars Eller got credit for a bizarre short-handed winner as the Canadiens defeated the Canucks 4-1. CHICAGO -- Marian Hossa was almost headed for an awkward celebration of his 500th career goal. Then the Chicago Blackhawks put together one final push, making sure it was a sweet night for their accomplished winger.Artem Anisimov snapped a third-period tie with his first goal of the season and then had an empty-netter with 45 seconds left, helping the Blackhawks beat the Philadelphia Flyers 7-4 on Tuesday.Artemi Panarin added two goals and an assist for the Blackhawks, who blew a 4-0 lead before closing strong for their second straight win after dropping their first two. NHL MVP Patrick Kane scored his first goal of the season and collected three assists, and Dennis Rasmussen also scored during Chicagos three-goal first.Kind of reminded me of our last game, when we were in a really good spot and we let the other team get back in the game, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. But tonight I thought we did some better things across the board. We didnt give up a ton and we generated some high quality stuff as well.Matt Read had two goals for Philadelphia, which dropped two of three on its season-opening road trip. Claude Giroux had three assists, and Steve Mason made nine saves in relief of a shaky Michal Neuvirth.The positive is the character to come back and tie the game in the third period, coach Dave Hakstol said. To stay with it and do that is a positive. The thing well look at the other side is, just too loose on a couple of plays.The 37-year-old Hossa slid a backhander through Neuvirths legs at 5:04 of the second, becoming the 44th player to reach 500 career goals. The rugged forward, long one of the NHLs best two-way players, then skated behind the net and threw his arms in the air before celebrating with his teammates in front of Chicagos bench.The crowd of 21,263 at the United Center roared when the milestone goal was announced, and Hossa waved his stick to acknowledge the standing ovation.What an amazing moment that was, Kane said. You could tell he was excited. The crowd was excited. Pretty cool celebration with him coming over to the bench and getting everyone involved, too.Hossa left in the third period after blocking a shot and said he would know mmore about the injury on Wednesday.dddddddddddd. After picking up an assist in each of Chicagos first three games, he was happy to get No. 500 out of the way.It feels great. Doing it at home in front of our fans, I cant be happier, he said. And the guys end up winning this game. It feels great.Hossas power-play goal chased Neuvirth and gave Chicago a 4-0 lead, but Philadelphia responded with four goals in a 5 1/2-minute span overlapping the second and third periods. Wayne Simmonds, who hit the left post on two different shots, tied it at 4 on the power play at 3:49 of the third.The Flyers had all the momentum before Panarin stepped up in his best game so far this season. The Calder Trophy winner found a wide-open Anisimov for the tiebreaking goal at 10:24, and then finished off a 2-on-1 with Kane, beating Mason for a 6-4 lead with 3:57 to go.Panarin was kept off the scoresheet during the Blackhawks first three games. Anisimov added two assists for a four-point night after he entered with just an assist so far this year.We just tried to play a simple game, Anisimov said. The momentum came our way (at the end).Sean Couturier also scored for Philadelphia, which went 2 for 4 on the power play after it was unsuccessful on its first six attempts with the man advantage so far this season.We never give up, Simmonds said. I dont think we ever have ever since Ive been here. Weve always been a team whos been able to come back. Obviously thats not the situation you want to be in. We made a good push, but we turned the puck over a couple too many times.Game notes Flyers F Michael Raffl departed in the second with an upper-body injury. ... Corey Crawford made 23 saves for Chicago. ... Blackhawks F Ryan Hartman (lower body) missed his second straight game. ...
