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 October 25.
1. Alabama Crimson Tide (5-0)
Alabama dominated Tennessee to go to 5-0. They did lose Jaylen Waddle for the season in the process, but the Crimson Tide is not short on playmakers.
This week: vs. Mississippi State Bulldogs (1-3)
2. Clemson Tigers (6-0)
It was just another ACC game for Clemson this week, as they defeated Syracuse 47-21. Clemson sure looks like they are on a path to the CFP.
This week: vs. Boston College Eagles (4-2)
3. Notre Dame Fighting Irish (5-0)
Notre Dame had their most impressive win of the season by beating Pittsburgh 45-3. The Fighting Irish look like they might have trouble with some of the elite teams in college football, but they have earned this spot in the rankings.
This week: at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (2-4)
4. Oklahoma State Cowboys (4-0)
It may come as a little bit of a surprise, but Oklahoma State’s defense helped them beat a ranked Iowa State team 24-21. They are undefeated and the Big 12’s best chance to make the CFP.
This week: vs. Texas Longhorns (3-2)
First Four Out
5. Cincinnati Bearcats (4-0)
Cincinnati proved they were for real with a blowout win over a ranked SMU team. The Bearcats are 4-0 and are the AAC’s best chance to make the CFP or get a New Year’s Six Bowl invite.
This week: vs. Memphis Tigers (3-1)
6. Georgia Bulldogs (3-1)
The Bulldogs were off this week. Georgia’s wins are looking worse and worse as the season goes on, but their only loss is to Alabama. If they keep on winning they will be in the conversation for the CFP.
This week: at Kentucky Wildcats (2-3)
7. BYU Cougars (6-0)
BYU doesn’t have the best schedule, but they keep on winning. They are 6-0 after beating Texas State. They have no ranked wins, so they’ll need help to stay this high in the rankings.
This week: vs. Western Kentucky Hilltoppers (2-4)
8. Texas A&M Aggies (3-1)
They were off this week, but the Aggies have a big win over Florida under their belts. To go with that, their only loss came to Alabama, who looks like they are a head above the rest of the SEC.
This week: vs. Arkansas Razorbacks (2-2)
Next Four Out
9. Marshall Thundering Herd (5-0)
Marshall stayed unbeaten with a 20-9 win over Florida Atlantic. They do have a ranked win over Appalachian State, which helps their case, but they need to keep winning games to stay in the rankings.
This week: at Florida International Panthers (0-3)
10. Coastal Carolina Chanticleers (5-0)
With a win over a tough Georgia Southern team, the Chanticleers kept their undefeated season alive. They have a ranked win over Louisiana and a win over Kansas, which has helped them get ranked in the polls.
This week: at Georgia State Panthers (2-2)
11. Indiana Hoosiers (1-0)
The Hoosiers came up with a big time upset of Penn State to start of their season. It was one of the most impressive wins of the season, which came from a thrilling game. It was a big win that puts the Hoosiers into the rankings for now.
This week: at Rutgers Scarlet Knights (1-0)
12. Michigan Wolverines (1-0)
Michigan got off to a great start with a win over Minnesota in prime time on Saturday. It is a ranked win and it looks like the Wolverines might have a quarterback in Joe Milton.
This week: vs. Michigan State Spartans (0-1)
