Where they got it wrong:

- Oklahoma should be up a spot or two

- Utah - way too high; should be around #10

- Penn State ranked over Minnesota (they just lost to them 2 weeks ago!)

 

The top-6 seem right to me. I want to say that the 3-loss Auburn over ND is a mistake, but boy does Auburn have a tough schedule and have played everyone tight; plus a top-10 win

 

 

1. LSU (10-0)

2. Ohio State (10-0)

3. Clemson (11-0)

4. Georgia (9-1)

5. Alabama (9-1)

6. Oregon (9-1)

7. Utah (9-1)

8. Penn State (9-1)

9. Oklahoma (9-1)

10. Minnesota (9-1)

11. Florida (9-2)

12. Wisconsin (8-2)

13. Michigan (8-2)

14. Baylor (9-1)

15. Auburn (7-3)

16. Notre Dame (8-2)

17. Iowa (7-3)

18. Memphis (9-1)

19. Cincinnati (9-1)

20. Boise State (9-1)

21. Oklahoma State (7-3)

22. Iowa State (6-4)

23. USC (7-4)

24. Appalachian State (9-1)

25. SMU (9-1)

Not to much to argue really. We deserve our ranking (Can't get clobbered like we did).

I agree. That performance against Michigan was the final nail in the coffin. It wasn’t just the loss, they looked just..... Sorry I have to stop talking about that game I promised my psychiatrist I would not talk about it. I have been going to sessions ever since ..... it’s going to take months to fully recover.

The more this season progresses, the more I am confused by the Michigan game - it was so uncharacteristic of every other game this season. I feel like it is an anomaly, but boy was it a big one. We looked like team #125 in that game.

 

I still feel like we are are a top 7 to 10 team, but that UofM game was such a head-scratcher.

VA Tech will get there.

 

Virginia will also get there after this week. Unfortunately, those two play each other at the end of the season, so only one will stay ranked.

 

USC will beat UCLA, so they'll stay in the Top 25. Navy could even get back in if they finish 10-2 - they have to play SMU this weekend, which will be tough, but then Houston and Army, both games they should win.

We better move up this week.

 

If Navy wins then we will have 3 top 25 wins most likely (Navy, USC and VT).

 

Only losses are to two top 10 teams.

 

I don't think that Michigan will be top 10 with 3 losses after they lose to Ohio State.

 

Georgia will likely get beat by LSU. Depending on how that goes they could fall out of the top 10.

Michigan won't be Top 10 after next weekend, but Georgia almost certainly will. A loss to #1 LSU won't drop them that far. They'd be the highest ranked 2-loss team, probably somewhere in the #7/#8 range.

Are we sure those teams will be ranked at the end of the season?

 

For us it only matter if they are ranked at the time of the playoff selection rankings.

 

USC- ranked as they probably don’t play again.

 

VT- if UVA wins they likely take VT’s spot. If either plays Clemson close I can see them staying in.

 

Navy- Have a great chance of going 10-2.

 

Not the best but definitely better than anything Oregon has accomplished.

Oregon has beaten one ranked team while we have beaten 3. Also two losses worse than ours.

 

I know it’s only one spot but we need every possible spot to reach a NY6 bowl.

 

That was the most bizarre one to me, and I am hoping the CFP rankings are different - although that'd be a long fall for Oregon since they were #6. They really should be below ND, though, if you consider who ND has beaten versus who Oregon has beaten.

 

The Big 10 will likely sort itself out. The loser of Minnesota/Wisconsin will fall below ND. Then the winner will likely fall below ND after getting blown out by OSU in the Big Ten Championship Game. Despite the loss, Michigan will fall below ND once they lose to OSU next Saturday. That leaves OSU and Penn State above ND - OSU to the CFP and Penn State to the Rose.

 

I think the Big 12 will take care of itself. If OU beats Baylor in the Big 12 Championship Game, I don't see a 11-2 Baylor above a 10-2 ND given the Committee's consistent lack of respect for Baylor's schedule.

 

The Pac-12 could be a problem. If Oregon beats Utah, then both teams could potentially be above ND. One goes to the Rose Bowl, but the other could grab the at-large Cotton Bowl bid. Although ND/Utah have a common opponent - USC - who ND beat and Utah lost badly to, a 11-2 Utah might be above ND. So, ND probably needs Utah to beat Oregon and give the Ducks 3 losses.

 

The SEC was the biggest concern, but with Oregon's loss, it is not as big of a concern. LSU, Georgia, Alabama, Florida and Auburn are all above ND right now. If Auburn loses to Alabama this Saturday, they'll fall below ND (they should be below ND already anyway). That leaves 4 SEC teams above ND. The positive news for ND is that it looks like 2 SEC teams will get in the CFP, whether its LSU/Georgia or LSU/Alabama. That would leave Georgia/Alabama and Florida above ND. Georgia/Alabama goes to the Sugar Bowl and Florida goes to the Orange Bowl.

 

Final Rankings

 

1. LSU (13-0, SEC Champ)

2. Ohio State (13-0, Big 10 Champ)

3. Clemson (13-0, ACC Champ)

4. Alabama (11-1)

5. Utah (12-1, Pac-12 Champ)

6. Oklahoma (12-1, Big 12 Champ)

7. Georgia (11-2)

8. Florida (10-2)

9. Penn State (10-2)

10. Notre Dame (10-2)

11. Baylor (11-2)

12. Oregon (10-3)

13. Wisconsin (10-3)

14. Minnesota (10-2)

15. Michigan (9-3)

 

CFP: LSU v Alabama, OSU v Clemson (these could be different if the Committee doesn't want the LSU/Alabama rematch)

Sugar: Georgia v Oklahoma

Rose: Utah v Penn State

Orange: Virginia Tech/Virginia v Florida

Cotton: ND v Memphis/Cincinnati
