The College Football Playoff rankings, the only one that matters for CFP selection, will be revealed after Week 10 games on Tuesday, Nov. 5, at about 9 p.m. on ESPN. The approximate start time is because the rankings will be revealed between the Kansas-Duke and Michigan State-Kentucky basketball games at Madison Square Garden.
The CFP teams and New Year’s Six teams will be revealed from 12-4 p.m. Dec. 8.
Pat has taken grief for his rankings in the past but he was ahead of his time with putting LSU at number 1; the rest of the country caught up this week, albeit barely. Penn State will flame out against the Buckeyes. The path for the Mighty Gators is clear! #seizetheday!
Is Michigan still considered a playoff contender? Will they still be after they lose to Ohio State?
Why did the media suddenly lose interest in their sensational creation, Texas?
Will UCF bounce back and win yet another “National Championship” for the city limits of Orlando?
Is it too late for Scott Frost to get Nebraska into the playoff picture?
How about Chip Kelly?
Auburn holds LSU to 23 and loses by 3 in Death Valley, and that propels LSU from #2 to #1, while Auburn drops to #11. What?! Their only two losses are true road games at the current #6 & #1 teams, they’ve beaten the current #7 team, and they don’t stay in the top 10? I guess it’s just too early for a top 10 team to have two losses.
Not if it’s Florida, Joe! We’ve got to play perfect football from now on.
It does feel like two losses will knock you out of the playoff conversation, but I’ll bet that sooner or later a two-loss team will make it.
That’s already happened, Joe…..remember the year UCF went something like 1-11? Their AD said they won a National Championship that year too.
Recall LSU’s national title in the BSC with two losses. It will happen again.
Yes, I remember that now, PVB. I believe the AP voted USC #1 that season. I’m sure you’re right, because if a two-loss SEC champion wasn’t left out in the two team BCS era, it certainly won’t be excluded from a four team playoff.
