College Football Playoff Rankings: Georgia Remains No. 1

Georgia Bulldogs

The Georgia Bulldogs remained No. 1 in the second College Football Playoff rankings released on Tuesday night.

Georgia headlined a 1-2 SEC ranking in the CFP, as the Alabama Crimson Tide came in at No. 2 for the second straight week.

After that, the rankings changed, thanks to Michigan State’s loss to Purdue on Saturday.

Oregon and Ohio State each moved up one spot from No. 3 to No. 4, respectively. That means that if the season ended today, the pair would make the playoff. The separator right now appears to be Oregon’s head-to-head win over Ohio State.

After that, Cincinnati moved up one spot to No. 5 after its eight-point win over the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. Cincinnati is trying to become the first Group of 5 team to reach the College Football Playoff.

Michigan came in at No. 6 and Michigan State dropped to No. 7. The curious part of this is that two weeks ago Michigan State defeated Michigan, a win that vaulted the Spartans to No. 2 in the first CFP rankings.

Oklahoma, Notre Dame and Oklahoma State rounded out the Top 10.

The rankings will come out each Tuesday through the rest of the season, with the final rankings and playoff field announced on Sunday, Dec. 5.
