After Bye Week Does Michigan Remain Atop Big Ten Power Rankings

I understand what the committee likes about LSU.

Georgia was next at five, followed by Oklahoma.

Facing a home game against a two-win Louisville team, the no. 2 Clemson Tigers proceeded to completely decimate the Cardinals in a 77-16 win. But the Tigers also have two losses. MI ousted LSU from the top four, sending the Tigers to seventh after their tough loss to Alabama.

Simply put, LSU is a good team. After 10 weeks of college football action, the College Football Playoff committee convened to determine the top 25 teams in the nation. We have a new top-four. Virginia Tech and possibly even Miami still have a chance to bump the Panthers out of the title game in a division filled with teams that have struggled. In terms of just how teams are playing right now, MI might be right behind Alabama and Clemson. Oh, and they still have three losses to Fresno State's single loss.

This is a simple case of two teams I believe should be swapped in the pecking order.

So looking ahead, Texas and West Virginia are the only real obstacles that remain in the way in Oklahoma's 2018 championship journey. Wazzu's loss was by three on the road to an unranked 5-4 USC team.


All nine teams are favorites, though, as of Wednesday, Nov. 6, two are favored by fewer than seven points: Ohio State (-3.5) and Washington State (-6 at Colorado).

Let's say that would happen and one-loss West Virginia beats Oklahoma on the final weekend of the regular season. So both teams have one loss, but West Virginia has the best win, the best loss, and it has played the more hard schedule.

"I have to be my best today", Orgeron said.

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.

The question here is, while it's true you can only defeat the teams on your schedule, does that mean a team you previously defeated should always be ranked behind you?

But there was little question around who would retain the top spots. Remember Michigan still plays Ohio State in the last regular-season game. No, of course not. If Penn State and Michigan State both manage to fall one more time this season, the Iowa Hawkeyes would be the third highest ranked team in the CFP rankings leaving them a potentially clear shot at playing in the Citrus Bowl.
