Week 3 is the kind of lineup that could throw the College Football Playoff contenders into the air just to see where they land.Several one-loss teams, namely Oklahoma, Notre Dame and Ole Miss, are facing must-win situations. But there are also games that could start a chain reaction of chaos. Heres a look at how each conference could be impacted by the biggest games of the week:PAC-12Potential chaos: USC beats StanfordThats all it would take to start a tailspin of confusion in the Pac-12 pecking order. USC was manhandled and embarrassed in its season opener against defending national champ Alabama, but everything is still on the table as far as the Pac-12 title goes. The Trojans could get right back into the CFP conversation, and the committee wouldnt leave out a one-loss Pac-12 champ with a lone loss to Alabama in the opener. (Granted, USC wont win the Pac-12 if it plays against Stanford the way it did against Bama). Stanfords season has typically been a reflection of the outcome of its game against USC. A win last year was parlayed into a Pac-12 title. A loss in 2014 sank Stanford into a five-loss season. After finishing No. 6 last year, David Shaws crew knows how tough it is to crack the top four as a two-loss team. With back-to-back road trips to UCLA and Washington looming, plus a trip to Notre Dame on Oct. 15, Stanford needs to win its home games.ACCPotential chaos: A three-way tie in the Atlantic DivisionThe scenario: Louisville beats FSU, Clemson beats Louisville, and FSU beats Clemson. (Scratching your head? The selection committee will be, too.) If Louisville is for real -- and who really knows after routs against Charlotte and Syracuse -- the ACCs Atlantic Division race could be a jumbled mess of one-loss teams, with Clemson, Louisville and FSU all playing each other. It starts Saturday, when No. 2 Florida State travels to Louisville, a game that features the two new Football Power Index favorites to win the ACC. Should the Cards win, FSU will need to hope Clemson fares better and beats Louisville, but the Noles then couldnt afford to lose at home to Clemson. Head-to-head results are one of the criteria the selection committee considers when evaluating comparable teams, but this chaos might also be the leagues best hope at having two teams in the CFP.SECPotential chaos: Alabama loses at Ole Miss and Auburn beats Texas A&MIf that happens, the SEC West will enter Week 4 with six of its seven teams already having a loss (assuming Arkansas starts 3-0 after a win against Texas State). Oh, its possible. Ole Miss has beaten Alabama in each of the past two seasons, and while that hasnt kept the Tide out of the playoff, a loss to Ole Miss this year would definitely put the pressure on throughout the rest of the season, especially if Auburn finds a way to enter the conversation. The Tigers lost a close one to Clemson, but that has zero impact on their SEC title chances, and any team with a shot to win the SEC has a chance at the committees top four. Auburn still has a lot to prove but seems to have found its offensive identity with Sean White at quarterback. ESPNs FPI is basically considering this one a toss-up, projecting Auburn with a 54.5 percent chance to beat A&M.BIG TENPotential chaos: Michigan State and Ohio State both lose nonconference games this weekMichigan State had a bye week to prepare for its road trip to Notre Dame, but ESPNs FPI gives the Spartans only a 22.1 percent chance to win in South Bend. No. 3 Ohio State is playing its first ranked opponent of the season after two lopsided wins against Bowling Green and Tulsa. Saturday should provide more answers about both Big Ten teams, but if they lose, one of them is guaranteed to finish the season with two losses, because they play each other Nov. 19 in East Lansing. That will most certainly provide Michigan some breathing room, assuming, of course, the Wolverines are undefeated heading into that Oct. 29 game at Michigan State. No. 9 Wisconsin might have something to say about that, though, on Oct. 1 in Ann Arbor.BIG 12Potential chaos: Oklahoma loses to Ohio StateOklahoma State has lost. TCU has lost. OU has lost. If the Sooners lose again this weekend, all eyes turn to Texas as the Big 12s best hope for a playoff contender, if it isnt already. After starting the season with a loss to Houston, Oklahoma has no margin for error Saturday against Ohio State. According to FPI, there is an 80 percent chance the Big 12 champ has two or more losses, up from 36 percent in the preseason. Thats a problem only because the Big 12s title game isnt in place until 2017, so a two-loss champ wouldnt have that extra game against a ranked opponent to help compensate for the second loss.OTHERSPotential chaos: Notre Dame and Houston both win outIf either loses, that team is likely out of the College Football Playoff, but what if both win out? It would present the selection committee with the option of leaving out three Power 5 conferences from its top four in favor of American champ Houston and the independent Irish. Want to combine two chaos scenarios? How about Louisville wins the ACC but loses to Houston?

TORONTO -- With the United States facing elimination against Canada at the World Cup of Hockey, coach John Tortorella chose to scratch two players hes very familiar with for the sake of what he hopes is the best lineup.Center Brandon Dubinsky and defenseman Jack Johnson will be scratched for the Americans must-win game against Canada on Tuesday night. Tortorella coaches those players in the NHL with the Columbus Blue Jackets and knows Dubinsky well from their time together with the New York Rangers.Winger Kyle Palmieri and defenseman Dustin Byfuglien replace Dubinsky and Johnson in the lineup after being out for the tournament-opening 3-0 loss to Team Europe. Jonathan Quick is expected to start in goal, with Ben Bishop backing up and Cory Schneider scratched.It kills me to take (Dubinsky) out because of how he competes, Tortorella said Tuesday morning. Its tough to scratch Jack Johnson, too. Its tough to scratch Cory Schneider. This is a really big game for USA Hockey, and to tell a couple guys, three guys, theyre not playing, that was hard.The United States must defeat Canada to remain alive in the tournament.Tortorella said the coaching staff agonized over the lineup decisions and combinations. Ultimately the group decided it wanted Palmieri, a 30-goal scorer, and Byfuglien, a big, physical force with a heavy shot, on the ice and on the power play.We hope (Byfuglien) scores a power-play goal, Tortorella said. He obviously was disappointed he didnt play the first game. I think hes really going to try to make a difference tonight. He needs to stay disciplined but also not test the waters and make a difference here.Dubinskys absence is a curious one given his experience shadowing Canadian captain Sidney Crosby throughout their careeers.dddddddddddd That job could now fall to David Backes or Ryan Kesler, who wants this to be as edgy a game as possible.Hopefully (the referees) let us play tonight, Kesler said.The U.S. needs to balance playing physical and finishing chances to score. Palmieri, an injury replacement for another Tortorella favorite, Ryan Callahan, is better at putting the puck in the net than putting an opponent into the glass.Palmieri doesnt mind being asked to do both.I think our team needs a little spark and hopefully I can go in there tonight and provide that, whether that be a goal and maybe a big hit, just a big play to get our team going tonight and get ourselves into it and just go from there, Palmieri said.Asked Sunday would it would mean to be in the lineup against Canada, Byfuglien said, Its everything.Getting Palmieri and Byfuglien in seemed like a no-brainer after the U.S. lacked quality scoring chances against Europe on Saturday. Choosing to sit two Blue Jackets players who have long histories with USA Hockey stood out, but Tortorella said that wasnt part of the consideration.No, I cant bring that into the process here, Tortorella said. Thats unfair. We have our 23 guys no matter whos coaching them. Its just for this team, this game, and we made the decision to go this way.Carey Price starts in goal for Canada, with Corey Crawford backing up and Braden Holtby scratched. Canada is expected to stick with the same lineup it used in a 6-0 rout of the Czech Republic on Saturday, which means forward Claude Giroux and defenseman Jake Muzzin out.---Follow Stephen Whyno on Twitter at .
