  • New Playoff Top 25: What We Learned

Auburn (10-2) moved up to No. 2, followed by No. 3 Oklahoma (11-1) and No. 4 Wisconsin (12-0). Wisconsin (12-0), 5. Alabama (11-1), 6.

Dabo Swinney's bunch has wins over Auburn, Virginia Tech, NC State and SC, with a really bad loss against Syracuse.

Following the 26-14 pummeling it took at Auburn last Saturday, how far might Alabama descend from its familiar home at No. 1, where it has resided for a mind-boggling 52 percent of the rankings across four years?

Second, there's the matter of the comparable weakness of the wins Alabama does have.

Big Ten West Champion and undefeated Wisconsin is that team, coming in at No. 4 in the fifth poll, released Tuesday night.

"It is a heck of a challenge playing against a really good Ohio State football team and what we're playing for is the Big Ten championship". They were able to go to the top after previously number one Alabama lost to Auburn over the weekend.

The only thing the other potential two-loss contenders, such as Ohio State, TCU or Southern California, would have on Clemson is a conference title.

The selection committee has cited the lack of a conference title game as a reason why a Big 12 team was left out of the College Football Playoff in the past. Head-to-head results and conference championships come into play when resumes are relatively even, and, in that case, resumes would be relatively even. TCU would also be 11-2 with a split against the Sooners and a Big 12 championship.

The Crimson Tide own three top-25 wins over No. 17 LSU, No. 23 Mississippi State and No. 25 Fresno State, which slipped into the top 25 but could fall out if it loses the Mountain West title game to Boise State. 1 team in a span of three weeks as well as the conference championship.

Georgia gets a rematch with No. 2 Auburn in the SEC Championship Game. The Sooners and Buckeyes would both be 11-2 with a loss to a top-10 team and a loss to a 7-5 team. The Huskies entered last week's Apple Cup ranked 17th, four spots behind rival Washington State, but Washington's decisive 41-14 victory lifted the Huskies to No. 13 and dropped the Cougars to No. 18.

Yes, the Crimson Tide, who lost by 12 points at Auburn last weekend, sit in prime position to move back into the Final Four if certain things happen this weekend. The Badgers have played through the criticism and set the stage for their entry to the playoff under one simple condition; win and they're in.

No. 10 USC and No. 11 TCU are still hoping to be a part of the conversation.
