College Football has now officially come back. Each week teams will be fighting for position in an effort to make the College Football Playoff. The teams will be ranked each week, but what matters most his who they have played and beaten already on the field. Preseason rankings will not be taken into consideration here. Here is College Football Playoff Bracketology November 15.
1. Alabama Crimson Tide (6-0)
Their game this week was canceled due to COVID cases at LSU, but Alabama retains the top spot in the rankings. They still have run right through all of their competition including Texas A&M and Georgia.
This week: vs. Kentucky Wildcats (3-4)
2. Notre Dame Fighting Irish (8-0)
Following up their big win over Clemson, Notre Dame defeated Boston College on the road 45-31. The Irish should be favored in their remaining games and then will have to likely play Clemson in the ACC Championship again.
This week: at North Carolina Tar Heels (6-2)
3. Clemson Tigers (7-1)
Clemson was off this week, but their only loss is still to Notre Dame. Their win over Miami continues to look better as well. The Tigers are in control of their own destiny.
This week: at Florida State Seminoles (2-6)
4. Cincinnati Bearcats (7-0)
It was another week that the Bearcats destroyed their competition in the AAC. This time they beat East Carolina 55-17. They have a few tough games left, but they need to win out and get some help to hold on to this spot.
This week: at UCF Knights (5-2)
First Four Out
5. BYU Cougars (8-0)
BYU was on a bye this week, but they get to keep their spot due to other team’s games being canceled (Ohio State and Texas A&M). They need to hope that Boise State wins a lot of games after the Cougars defeated the Broncos last week.
This week: vs. Northern Arizona (FCS)
6. Texas A&M Aggies (5-1)
The Aggies were supposed to play Tennessee, but their game was postponed due to COVID. They have a big win over Florida and look like they may be able to win the rest of the games on their schedule to make things interesting.
This week: vs. Ole Miss Rebels (3-4)
7. Florida Gators (5-1)
Florida’s offense laid it on Arkansas, as they won 63-35. This extended their record to 5-1, with their only loss coming to Texas A&M. They need to win out, including the SEC Championship if they wish to be in the CFP.
This week: at Vanderbilt Commodores (0-6)
8. Indiana Hoosiers (4-0)
Indiana’s surprise season continued when they defeated Michigan State this weekend. It was a shutout, as the Hoosiers won 24-0. Their wins over Penn State and Michigan are looking worse as time goes on, but they have a chance to prove they are for real against Ohio State.
This week: at Ohio State Buckeyes (3-0)
Next Four Out
9. Ohio State Buckeyes (3-0)
The Buckeyes were supposed to play Maryland this week, but they game was canceled because of COVID. Ohio State is a top four team, but they simply haven’t played enough games yet to move up the rankings. If they defeat Indiana, their ranking should match their talent.
This week: vs. Indiana Hoosiers (4-0)
10. Liberty Flames (8-0)
After their big upset of Virginia Tech, Liberty blew out Western Carolina. That win won’t help them in the rankings, but the Flames do keep winning.
This week: at NC State Wolfpack (5-3)
11. Coastal Carolina Chanticleers (7-0)
Coastal Carolina’s game against Troy was canceled because of COVID. The Chanticleers are still undefeated with some solid wins under their belts. This week they will have another big game against Appalachian State.
This week: vs. Appalachian State Mountaineers (6-1)
12. Marshall Thundering Herd (7-0)
The Thundering Herd kept their undefeated season alive with a win over Middle Tennessee, 42-14. They have three games left and could end the season at 10-0. Marshall would need help to both get to the CFP or a New Year’s Six Bowl Game, but all they can do is keep winning.
This week: Charlotte 49ers (2-3)
