Well find out a lot more about where things stand in the race for the College Football Playoff when the official rankings come out next week. Leading up to the big reveal, our college football experts narrowed the field to the 10 teams with the best shot at the national title.Heres a look at Baylors title chances; to vote for who you think will win it all, go to our poll page or scroll to the bottom of this feature:The case for BaylorSeth Russell has a 14-0 career record as a starting quarterback with Baylor, outscoring opponents by 33.9 points per game in those contests. The Bears have averaged 629.9 yards per game when Russell starts, over 70 yards more than they have averaged when Russell does not start over the past three seasons.-- ESPN Stats & InfoThe case against BaylorBaylor may be undefeated, but FPI gives Oklahoma (5-2, 4-0 Big 12) and West Virginia (6-0, 3-0) greater chances to win the Big 12.Baylor ranks 16th in Strength of Record, lowest of all of the undefeated teams in the FBS, including Group of 5 schools Boise State and Western Michigan. The Bears have played the 114th toughest schedule in the FBS so far, lowest among all Power 5 teams.-- ESPN Stats & InfoTalking pointsVegas odds:?Baylor has 40-1 odds to win the national title, according to Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.What FPI says: According to ESPNs Football Power Index, the Bears have a 3.1 percent chance of winning out through the regular season and a 17.3 percent chance of winning the Big 12. Their remaining schedule -- which includes matchups against No. 16 Oklahoma and No. 10 West Virginia on the road -- ranks as the 10th most difficult.ESPN staff writer Mackenzie Kraemer:?Baylor gets its toughest test of the season Saturday when it visits Texas. The Bears have played only one game in the past three weeks, against Big 12 doormat Kansas.ESPN Insider Brian Fremeau:??The Bears had at least an 80 percent win likelihood in every game theyve played thus far, but only have an 80 percent win likelihood in one of their remaining games. There is a 67 percent chance theyll trip up at least once in their next three games against Texas, TCU and Oklahoma. If they do get through that stretch, a road game against West Virginia to close the year looms large. The Bears have had hot starts against weak competition in the past before slowing down late, and our projection model indicates they are following a similar script again this year.ESPN senior writer Mark Schlabach: I hope the Bears havent worn themselves out after their recent four-game stretch: Iowa State, bye, Kansas, bye.

Now Piquet returns to the scene of his biggest stock-car racing moment still trying to find his footing on the next rung up the ladder. "Obviously, Im frustrated with our results," Piquet said Friday. "Were not where I wanted to be." Piquet, the first Brazilian to win a race in one of NASCARs major national series and the son of a three-time Formula One champion, ended up getting the full-time Nationwide ride he was looking for this year. He moved up a level with Turner Scott Motorsports after driving in the third-tier Camping World Truck series full time last year. He enters Saturdays race a respectable 13th in the Nationwide points standings, but he has had a pair of races end in wrecks while managing only one top-10 finish — ninth place at Michigan last week. "I think part of it is because it was a last-minute deal and we had to put a team together very quickly two weeks before Daytona," Piquet said. That hurts, Piquet said, given the level of competitiveness in the series. "Obviously, were fighting against Cup teams, so I dont think we have the best cars out there," Piquet said. "But I think if you get a team that works very well together, we can be competitive sometimes." Its telling, perhaps, that Piquets most notable moment this season was his infamous below-the-belt kick to fellow competitor Brian Scott after an altercation at Richmond International Raceway in April. If Piquet is to put that ugly moment behind him with another win this weekend, he might have to do it in the rain. Lightning in the area interrupted the Nationwide practice schedule Friday afternoon — drivers ended up practicing part of the afternoon on rain tires then changed to slicks as the track dried out — and there is a chance for more showers during Saturdays race at the scenic four-mile road course in Central Wisconsin.dddddddddddd That brings up the possibility of racing in the rain on specially designed grooved rain tires, something fairly common in other forms of road racing, but almost unheard-of in NASCAR beyond a memorable 2008 Nationwide race in Montreal. AJ Allmendinger said a wet race might be a blast for fans, but not so much fun for drivers. "Itll be entertaining for people to watch, because itll be insane," Allmendinger said. Michael McDowell has a road racing background and doesnt mind the idea of driving in the rain, but has some concerns about other drivers who dont have experience in wet conditions. "Theres a lot of guys that dont have any experience," McDowell said. "And because of that, when you have heavy rains and lots of mist and lots of spray coming off the cars and you barrel down into Turn 5 and all the guy sees is a red light, were going to have a caution every couple of laps." Said Nationwide series points leader Regan Smith: "I think, at this point, Id prefer that it stays dry and dont worry about it. Its tough enough learning a new race track." Piquet wouldnt mind rain, but knows hell have a tough time repeating his victory either way. After spending most of his career in open-wheel road racing — including a stint in Formula One, which ended in scandal after he deliberately crashed in a race to help his teammate, allegedly because he was ordered to do so by his team — Piquet decided to try stock car racing. Beyond his Road America Nationwide win last year, he also had a successful 2012 in the Trucks Series, winning twice and finishing seventh in the points. To help him take the next step, Piquet hopes his team can get its chemistry issues sorted out. "Its frustrating, because we know we have a car that can be running constantly, lets say, in the top 10 — but were struggling to get close to the top 10," Piquet said. "(Im) trying to give my best, and obviously Im pushing the team as much as I can for them to get these issues sorted and try to get better."
