Now that a majority of college football programs have reached the six-game mark, the outlook of every team is starting to become clear.

While traditional powers Alabama and Ohio State remain thriving programs, a few brand-name schools are steadily recapturing a place in the nation’s consciousness. However, plenty of expectations have gone unmet, too.

Three of the biggest coach hires are searching for positive results, and several respected teams from this offseason keep falling short on game day.

December is merely a blip on the horizon, and plenty will change by then. But the midpoint of the regular season has brought an apparent group of winners and losers.
