Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Michigan Latest Quartet in College Football Playoff Rankings

After Bye Week Does Michigan Remain Atop Big Ten Power Rankings

No. 1 Alabama would face No. 4 MI in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic, because the committee won't put the No. 1 seed at any geographic disadvantage, and while marginal, Arlington, Texas, is slightly closer to Tuscaloosa than Miami, where No. 2 Clemson would face No. 3 Notre Dame in the College Football Playoff Semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl.

A huge matchup with No. 6 Oklahoma late in the season looms large for the Mountaineers. Oklahoma moves up to sixth and LSU slid to No. 7, followed by Washington State, West Virginia and Ohio State. Those three teams have a combined record of 20-7 (No. 3 LSU, No. 9 Kentucky, No. 11 Florida). Last season after Week 10, there were three teams in the Top 25 that had lost three games. Boston College will control its own destiny if it can pull off the upset.

No. 18 MSU will take on No. 1 Alabama at 2:30 p.m. Saturday (WCBI) in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.

This is the second of six weekly rankings released by the selection committee, with the final rankings to be revealed on December 2.

Boeing said it is cooperating fully and providing technical assistance as the investigation continues. The committee has said they were dealing with an "erroneous airspeed indication".

The initial release of the College Football Playoff rankings was sure to play it's part in the week ten action and based on the results from this past weekend, I think we are sure to see a little movement on the next rankings. So both teams have one loss, but West Virginia has the best win, the best loss, and it has played the more hard schedule.

The Cougars could finish as 12-1 champions of the weakest Power Five conference and no notable nonconference victories.

Oklahoma Sooners - Neither they nor Washington State had convincing wins last weekend, but Oklahoma beat a better Texas Tech team on the road so they get the edge. The problem is, they'll have to do it two times over to claim their 12th Big 12 title and fourth consecutive conference crown. The last time the Pac-12 had only two ranked teams was October 16, 2016. Also, Georgia and Alabama host No. 24 Auburn and No. 16 Mississippi State. Ohio State could win out - beating Michigan State and Michigan along the way - and get in.
