Boo Corrigan explains Ohio State's slip from No. 1 following Week 11
Boo Corrigan and the College Football Playoff selection committee have seen enough through Week 11. After Ohio State obtained the No. 1 spot for the first two versions of the CFP rankings, Georgia was back on top in the latest rankings released Tuesday.
During ESPN’s live reveal show, Corrigan was asked by Rece Davis and the college football crew why the Bulldogs bumped Ohio State down to No. 2. While the entire body of work is considered, Corrigan specifically cited the back-to-back wins over Mizzou and Ole Miss.
“I think you look at the game, and y’all were just talking about it. The win last week over Missouri and then the Mississippi game was tied at 14-all, they go on a 38-3 run and kind of show their dominance on offense and defense,” said Corrigan. “In looking at it in the resume and everything combined, we thought Georgia was the No.1 team this week.”

It’s hard to argue with the recent results Georgia has put together. In Week 10, Missouri came to Athens as the No. 12 team in the country, and the Bulldogs flexed their defensive muscle late to secure that game.
The game against Ole Miss was a different story. Despite a strong start by Lane Kiffin’s team, it was Kirby Smart’s Bulldogs that rolled with a string of 31 unanswered points in the 52-17 win.
