CFP rankings: Bulldog Kingdom didn’t last

There’s a new No. 1, but it’s a sly old fox

The top-5 of the College Football Playoff Rankings suffered a big shaking on Saturday, as both former No. 1 Georgia and No. 3 Notre Dame had bad losses against, respectively, Auburn and Miami. The Bulldogs still have a shot at the playoffs, if they win out from now on, while, probably, this loss is fatal for the Fighting Irish.

Another SEC team took the lead, and that’s obviously Alabama. The Crimson Tide precede two ACC teams, Clemson and Miami, that are certain to play each other in the Championship Game, and Oklahoma.

The Sooners took advantage of the victory over TCU to land into a potential playoff spot, while the Horned Frogs remain in the top-15, at No. 12 and No. 13. The Big 12 loses a member, as Iowa State had the fourth loss of the season and dropped from the top-25.
