Georgia in top five of College Football Playoff rankings

Georgia in top five of College Football Playoff rankings

Oklahoma is back in action Saturday at 2:30 p.m. rival Oklahoma State.

To no surprise, the Alabama Crimson Tide has retained their No. 1 spot in the rankings after their shutout victory against LSU. We have a new top-four. Remember Michigan still plays Ohio State in the last regular-season game. UCF, at 8-0, is behind two teams with two losses already.

Seven teams ranked ahead of Syracuse lost this week, including four within the 10-20 rankings, who each suffered their third loss of the season. Florida 16. Mississippi State 17.

Two weeks ago, the prospect of a rematch with a one-loss Texas in the Big 12 championship game appeared to be the best pathway the Sooners had of wrangling one of the coveted four Playoff spots and a hill that, with each passing week this late in the season, is getting steeper to climb. Unless they turn it around, they could unquestionable drop their second game out of their last three.

Dora Aguillon is from Puerto Rico, her husband is from Mexico, and their kids were born in the U.S. The system, he said, "clearly has never been audited by any computer security professional".

Northwestern's Clayton Thorson, left, tries to break a tackle by Notre Dame's Te'von Coney during the second half of an NCAA college football game Saturday, Nov. 3, 2018, in Evanston, Ill. That could buffer the Irish against one loss in their final three games, but with no conference title and some struggling marquee teams on their schedule such as Virginia Tech and Stanford, Notre Dame is not a lock if it gets into a resume contest with other one-loss teams. Not so fast. Take a quick glance at the rankings and notice how many highly ranked teams still have to play each other. The good news for the Bulldogs is beating Alabama to win the SEC championship would nearly certainly make up for a second regular-season loss. We think they will move to No. 7 with Washington State remaining at No. 8. We're talking about a team that's 6-3, one that literally needed its athletic director to publicly go on the record Tuesday that they won't be firing their coach this season.

The Knights stayed at No. 12 after beating Temple 52-40 last week.

Clemson has two 60-point wins this season, which shows how dominant they've been in the ACC. Trevor Lawrence, Travis Etienne, and the offense is on-fire, and they might be able to go toe-to-toe with Alabama's offense.
