College Football Playoff Bracketology October 24

College Football Playoff Bracketology October 24

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 is 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 October 24.

College Football Playoff Four

1. Georgia Bulldogs (7-0)

Georgia was off this week, but that doesn’t change their ranking. Realistically, they are in the top spot until the drop a game, as no one will be able to put forth a better resume than them unless they drop a game. Wins over Clemson, Kentucky, Auburn and Arkansas help their case.

This week: vs. Florida Gators (4-3) *Game in Jacksonville, Florida

2. Cincinnati Bearcats (7-0)

It was a slow start for the Bearcats, but they rallied to beat Navy by seven. They would’ve liked to get style points, but getting a win is more important. Their wins over Notre Dame and Indiana are still aiding them, but really no other teams are notching big-time wins to knock Cincinnati out of the second spot yet.

This week: at Tulane Green Wave (1-6)

3. Oklahoma Sooners (8-0)

Kansas had Oklahoma down early, but Caleb Williams made some miraculous plays to help the Sooners come back and win. They have some solid wins, but none are over teams that are currently ranked.

This week: vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders (5-3)

4. Alabama Crimson Tide (7-1)

Alabama just needs to keep winning. With Oklahoma State losing, they move up into the top four. Winning out is the only sure way they will get in the CFP, but there may be some margin for error with top 10 teams dropping games most weeks.

This week: BYE

First Four Out

5. Ohio State Buckeyes (6-1)

Beating Indiana helped the Bucekyes pass the eye test. If these rankings were solely based on the eye test, the Buckeyes would be ranked in the top two. They still lack a signature win though, but will have opportunities coming up. Their loss to Oregon is holding them back, but ultimately their fate is in their own hands still.

This week: vs. Penn State Nittany Lions (5-2)

6. Michigan Wolverines (7-0)

Michigan just keeps on winning. This week they defeated Northwestern, which still leaves them without a signature win. Their best win is either over Wisconsin or a MAC team. All they can do is keep on winning, but it will get tougher coming up.

This week: at Michigan State Spartans (7-0)

7. Michigan State Spartans (7-0)

The Spartans were off for the weekend and have started preparing for Michigan. Like their in-state rivals, they have not had an opportunity to notch a signature win. They did beat Western Kentucky and Indiana, but neither of those wins will move the needle too much. The game against Michigan is huge for both teams.

This week: vs. Michigan Wolverines (7-0)

8. Oregon Ducks (6-1)

Mario Cristobal’s team has a knack for making things interesting. They beat a solid UCLA team on the road 34-31. Their win over Ohio State is still bolstering their case for the CFP, but they haven’t played well recently. The Ducks still have a slim chance to make the CFP, but they have to start playing better.

This week: vs. Colorado Buffaloes (2-5)

Next Four Out

9. Ole Miss Rebels (6-1)

The Rebels were banged up, but defeated LSU to extend their record to 6-1. Their only loss of the season came at the hands of Alabama. They will hope to keep winning and that Alabama loses, which would give them a crack at the SEC Championship. The win over Arkansas helps their case for now, but there are more tests coming.

This week: at Auburn Tigers (5-2)

10. Iowa Hawkeyes (6-1)

After losing to Purdue, Iowa got a much-needed bye week. They have defeated Penn State and Iowa State for solid wins, but the Hawkeyes need to win out if they want any shot at the CFP.

This week: at Wisconsin Badgers (4-3)

11. Kentucky Wildcats (6-1)

Kentucky was another team that had a bye in week 8. This came after their loss to Georgia. The path looks decently clear for the Wildcats to pick up some wins as the season winds down. Their wins against LSU and Florida aren’t looking the greatest, but with their only loss being to Georgia, they deserve the ranking.

This week: at Mississippi State Bulldogs (4-3)

12. Wake Forest Demon Deacons (7-0)

There was no defense in the Demon Deacons’ game against Army, but they walked away with a win to stay undefeated. Wake Forest has had a dream of a season under Dave Clawson. They still don’t have a big win, but that may come in a few weeks when they play NC State.

This week: vs. Duke Blue Devils (3-4)
