Only the top four teams will make it into the first-ever College Football Playoff, but that doesn't stop the selection committee from cranking out their top 25 teams every week of the season. For a reference of what exactly it is the committee is looking for, check out SBNation's excellent round-up here. Last weekend saw several big upsets in the college football world, including Auburn falling to Texas A&M. So who moved up and who fell down? Here's this week's updated rankings:
|1. Mississippi State||9-0||1|
|3. Florida State||9-0||2|
|6. Arizona State||8-1||9|
|8. Ohio State||8-1||14|
|10. Ole Miss||8-2||11|
|12. Michigan State||7-2||8|
|13. Kansas State||7-2||7|
|18. Notre Dame||7-2||10|
|22. Georgia Tech||8-2||24|
|24. Texas A&M||7-3||NR|
A couple interesting things to note here:
- Oregon jumped up two spots after not even being in the top four several weeks ago. Florida State dropped a spot to number three.
- There are five Big Ten teams ranked, but it's looking like Ohio State is the only one with a remote shot at a playoff berth. The SEC had the most teams make the Top 25 with seven.
- Alabama and Arizona State just missed out coming in at 5th and 6th overall respectively.
- TCU cracked the top four and is now in the bracket. If the season ended today, the College Football Playoff would look like this:
