College Football Playoff Positions: Michigan and TCU move into the top 25, and Georgia leads the rankings.
Georgia was the new No. 1 in the College Football Playoff standings, followed by Ohio State, Michigan and TCU.
The Bulldogs’ climb to third is not surprising after Saturday’s impressive win over former number one Tennessee.
Fourth-ranked Clemson was also eliminated in the first round of the selection committee last week, clearing the way for the fourth-ranked change.
Ohio was second. The Buckeyes’ Big Ten rival, Michigan, is up five to three. TCU jumped 3 spots to 4th place and 4 national teams took 1st place. “It’s going to be a challenge to stay here,” TCU coach Sonny Dykes said on ESPN’s Rankings Show.
Tennessee fell to fifth and Pac-12’s Oregon and LSU jumped three places to seventh after the Tigers defeated Alabama.
North Carolina’s Athletic Head Selection Committee Chairman Boo Corrigan said TCU’s six wins against a team with a record over 500 were surprising. “I don’t think TCU has done as much as Tennessee,” Corrigan said.
He added the Volunteers’ big wins against Alabama and LSU and put them against Georgia and Oregon to lose 46.
Clemson fell to 10th after losing to Notre Dame. Alabama fell from sixth to ninth after their second loss of the season.
This is the first time that neither Clemson nor Alabama have been in the top six since the College Football Playoffs rankings began in 2014.
We’ve never seen a college football playoff without the Tigers and Crimson Tide, who have won 5 of their 8 CFP championships.
Tennessee’s decline seems a little rough. The CFP selection committee lost its way to the best team in the country it saw last week.
The Vols are the only team in this week’s rankings with three wins over other teams. Two of those were against teams currently in the top 10.
The 27-point win at LSU is Georgia’s second-best win of the season behind a 46-point victory over Oregon.
Meanwhile, TCU is finally getting the honor of the Horned Frogs. The Big 12 has quality depth at the top of the conference this season, which helps the Frogs’ strength of schedule.
With an average scoring margin for FBS games less than half that of Georgia, Ohio State and Michigan, TCU finds it difficult to dominate games the way the Commission desires.
It’s strange to see Alabama and Clemson fall so far down the list. This is the first time that the committee has announced a top 25 team that does not include one of the top 4 teams.
The Tide have made seven of their eight playoffs so far, and the Tigers have made six. No other team has more than 4 players.
The highest-ranked team not to make the CFP is 13th-ranked Utah. The Utes still managed to win the Pac-12, but their 11-2 record doesn’t carry the same weight as LSU or Alabama’s similar records.
