How does Notre Dame get back into CFP? (1:53)

Heather Dinich ESPN Staff Writer 

TCU's double OT win over Baylor knocked the Bears out of the CFP and race for the Big 12 title, leaving Oklahoma vs. Ok State the de facto Big 12 title game. The league needs the Sooners to win because they are currently No. 3 and its best shot at a one-loss champ in the top four. The Cowboys sit at No. 11, clearly not a top team right now in the eyes of the committee. If Bama, Clemson and Big Ten take three spots, Ok St could be left out in favor of ND, or possibly even Stanford. Big 12 fans should root for Stanford tomorrow, and then for Stanford to lose in Pac-12 title game -- just to be safe.

Take Your Pick: Week 13 (2:18)

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Rooting interest today for Notre Dame: Navy over Houston, TCU over Baylor, Nebraska over Iowa. Committee loves Navy, which is ND's best win to date. If Mids win today and Temple wins Saturday, ND will have wins against both teams in AAC title game. Baylor loss eliminates Bears from Big 12 title contention and the possibility of jumping ND for playoff spot. Iowa loss would make it tough for Hawkeyes to make Playoff even if they beat MSU/OSU/Mich in Big Ten title game.

Cutler rallies for first win at Lambeau

After a miserable start to the Thursday night game, Jay Cutler was able to muster up enough offense to topple the Packers in Green Bay. He finished 19 of 31 for 200 yards and no turnovers in his first career win at Lambeau Field. Game balls

Forte can't get much going in return

In his first game back since being injured on Nov. 1, Matt Forte managed just 44 yards on 15 carries. He added one nine-yard catch to total four fantasy points in the win over Green Bay. Thanksgiving Day fantasy winners/losers
