Paul Myerberg USA TODAY Published 9:22 AM EDT Oct 5, 2018 It’s now October, believe it or not, and there are still 14 unbeaten teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Enjoy it while it lasts, since it’s during this month that true contenders tend to pull away from the herd. Four of the 14 unbeaten teams hail from one conference, the SEC, and the matchup of Georgia and LSU on Oct. 13 ensures that no more than three will head into November without a blemish. The three unbeaten teams in the East Division of the American Athletic Conference — that’s Central Florida, South Florida and Cincinnati — will pick themselves off eventually, at the latest when the three are scheduled to meet in November. It’s highly probable that it won’t come to that.

While some of these agreements involve series of games on equal and relatively modest terms, the real money is elsewhere. It’s in about a dozen contests at off-campus sites, like the weekend’s featured matchups: No. 6-ranked Washington vs. No. 10 Auburn on Saturday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, and No. 8 Miami (Fla.) vs. No. 24 LSU at AT&T Stadium on Sunday night in Arlington, Texas.

There are not a lot of first-round locks at cornerback this year after Ohio State’s Denzel Ward, who’s a top-10 candidate. Minkah Fitzpatrick is regarded just as highly as Ward, but we’re considering him as a safety. He played both at Alabama and could be an immediate starter at either spot in the NFL. Even without Fitzpatrick, there’s enough depth that as many as 15 cornerbacks could hear their names called by the end of the second day (Round 3). And there still will be some players with intriguing size-speed combinations available when Round 4 begins.
