Shocking footage shows the moment a photographer is knocked unconscious when a football player crashes into her on the sidelines of a game. Photographer Chamberlain Smith was leveled on her back by University of Georgia Bulldogs running back Brian Herrien, during the game against Auburn University on Saturday. In footage picked up by TV cameras, Herrien is pushed out of bounds at the 4-yard line as he steams toward the end zone in the second quarter at Auburn's Jordan-Hare Stadium in Alabama.

A Georgia statement said Chamberlain Smith was sent to East Alabama Medical Center in nearby Opelika.

Fifth-ranked Georgia beat No. 13 Auburn 21-14. Minnesota and Baylor took their first losses, Georgia survived a trip to Auburn to stay in the playoff hunt and Alabama, despite a horrible injury to its starting quarterback, is still in this thing.

Iowa's Kinnick Stadium proved too much for the Gophers, and Oklahoma became the first team since at least 1937 to overcome a 21-point halftime deficit against a team that entered the game 9–0 or better, beating Baylor 34–31. Hang your hat on… holding a 20-point halftime lead at Alabama and winning 46–41. They'll make the playoff if… they win out in any form and potentially even if they drop a game. LSU has the best résumé in college football and could possibly afford a loss and still advance to the playoff at 12–1. They get Arkansas and Texas A&M at home before tangling with Georgia in the SEC championship game.

They'll make the playoff if… they win the Big Ten. That means beating Penn State next week to advance to the championship game. Hang your hat on… winning 26 games in a row, even if the committee isn't supposed to factor that in. Forget about… that one-point win at a North Carolina team that has lost six games. They get a bye next week before playing at South Carolina and facing a potential four-loss team in the ACC championship game. Last game: Beat Auburn 21–14 Hang your hat on… three real, real good wins against Florida, Notre Dame and Auburn. That means they'd have beaten LSU in the SEC championship game, adding to their résumé a fifth quality win. This would likely mean two SEC teams, Georgia and LSU, getting into the playoff (someone check on Barry Alvarez). Hang your hat on… a nine-game winning streak and one of the better losses in the nation, 27–21 to Auburn in Arlington. They'll make the playoff if… they win out, maybe. With its strength of schedule and its good loss, the Ducks are in position to advance to the playoff as the 4-seed barring two SEC teams, LSU and Georgia, advancing to the CFP. Last game: Beat Baylor 34–31 Forget about… loss at Kansas State. They'll make the playoff if… several other teams drop games. Their résumé could be stacked against a one-loss Pac-12 champion and an 11–1 Alabama, and like everybody else, they've got to hope two SEC teams don't squeak into the field. Last game: Beat Mississippi State 38–7 Hang your hat on… you're Alabama and you normally get the benefit of the doubt (also that your only loss is to the No. 1 team). They'll make the playoff if… the Pac-12 and Big 12 champions each have two losses. That would be a sure way into the playoff if the Tide wins its final two games. That would mean Baylor, Oklahoma, Utah and Oregon would have to each drop at least one game. They'll make the playoff if… they find a way to beat Oregon in the Pac-12 championship to reach 12–1. Hang your hat on… winning the first nine games of the season. Forget about… beating San Diego State, Fresno State and Georgia Southern by a combined 13 points. They'll make the playoff if… they beat Ohio State. OK, the Gophers have to do more than that, especially after the loss to Iowa, but what if they were to upset the Buckeyes in the Big Ten title game? A win over OSU would arguably be the best victory by any team in the nation this year. Hang your hat on… those quality wins, which out-number all other teams in the top 10 aside from LSU. They'll make the playoff if… if they go 12–1 with a Big 12 title win over OU and some other stuff happens. Will they leap an 11–1 Alabama or a potential one-loss Pac-12 champion?
