Here Are The College Football Playoff Rankings After Week 10

Here Are The College Football Playoff Rankings After Week 10

The second College Football Playoffs rankings are here. In the latest Week 11 college football odds, top-ranked Alabama is favored by 23.5 points at home against No. 18 Mississippi State in a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff on CBS. 3 LSU was shut out 29-0 by Alabama.

Ten ranked teams lost this weekend, four in games against other ranked teams. Now, the Aggies have only beaten one team with a winning record - Hawaii - so they don't have the strength of schedule to warrant being ranked much higher, but even if they haven't played the most challenging schedule, they've annihilated everyone in their path. Utah State's eight wins have come by an average of 32.9 points per game. Two-loss teams that don't have a chance at conference championships don't have that luxury. It will likely finish the season as a top 10 team in the country, but it can't compete with the elite.

1 and Clemson is second, followed by Notre Dame, Michigan, Georgia, Oklahoma, LSU, Washington State, West Virginia, and Ohio State rounding out the top 10. Notre Dame fans believe their team holds a trump card against MI, with that season-opening victory in South Bend.

OSU'S PATH: A 12-1 record, with a win over MI and a Big Ten championship, does not guarantee a spot in the playoff for Ohio State.

We think it is a rebuttable presumption and MI should be ranked ahead of Notre Dame.

'God help us!' Pair of California wildfires, spurred by high win
Early Friday morning, the wildfire jumped the 101 in Ventura County into Agoura Hills , closing a 4-mile stretch of the highway. The Los Angeles County Fire Department tweeted that the fire raging through the Santa Monica Mountains was headed to the ocean.

Take a look at the full top 25 below.

Alabama still is No. 1 in the official College Football Playoff rankings. 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.

- Washington State. Sure, Ed Orgeron vs. Mike Leach would be fun.

West Virginia and Ohio State round out the top 10.

Let's say that would happen and one-loss West Virginia beats Oklahoma on the final weekend of the regular season. Meanwhile, Penn State fell to #20 after getting their butts kicked by MI 42-7. It has a strong defense, but offensively, it's limited at best. Notre Dame moved up to third after the team improved to 9-0 following a hard-fought win over Northwestern. UCF gave up a bunch of yards to Temple last week and stayed at No. 12 behind Kentucky, which was dominated by Georgia.
