- There are five Big Ten teams ranked, but it's looking like Ohio State is the only one with a realistic shot at a playoff berth. Minnesota stayed in the top 25 despite losing to the Buckeyes this past weekend.
- TCU and Ohio State just missed out coming in at 5th and 6th overall respectively. The Horned Frogs were ranked fourth last week.
- The Georgia Bulldogs have two bad losses and are in the top ten overall.
- Alabama cracks the top four teams this week, and vaults all the way from the fifth spot to the #1 overall slot. If the season ended today, the playoff bracket would look like this:
