College Football Playoff Rankings: 4 B1G teams crack Top 25 as Michigan moves up
The College Football Playoff Rankings are getting updated ahead of Week 11 with the CFP Committee unveiling a new top 25 on Tuesday.
Coming out of Week 10, there was always going to be a shake-up near the top with some wild upsets over the weekend. A trio of top-10 teams lost with No. 1 Tennessee, No. 4 Clemson and No. 6 Alabama all falling.
A new No. 1 was all but assured after the Vols lost to No. 3 Georgia with the Bulldogs, Ohio State and Michigan all undefeated. TCU joins that group as the final undefeated team in the country entering Week 11.
The positioning of Ohio State and Michigan in the new CFP Top 25 is also an area of interest. On the initial rankings, the Buckeyes were No. 2 with the Wolverines coming in at No. 5.
Over the weekend, both teams struggled early on the road against unranked opponents but Ohio State’s performance was particularly ugly. Though the weather absolutely hampered the overall performance, the Buckeyes managed just 21 points in a win over a Northwestern team that looks like one of the worst Power 5 teams in the country this season.
In the end, here is how the new CFP Rankings look coming out of Week 10:
