Week 11 CFP Rankings Reaction

There were some big upsets this week, so let’s look at how it affected the CFP top 25.

Here are this week’s rankings:
1. Clemson
2. Alabama
3. Ohio State
4. Notre Dame

5. Iowa
6. Baylor
7. Stanford
8. Oklahoma State
9. LSU
10. Utah
11. Florida
12. Oklahoma
13. Michigan State
14. Michigan
15. TCU
16. Florida State
17. Mississippi State
18. Northwestern
19. UCLA
*20. Navy
21. Memphis
22. Temple
*23. North Carolina
24. Houston
*25. Wisconsin

18Ole Miss, 19Texas A&M, and 24Toledo all fell out this week. I was at the Arkansas-Ole Miss game and still can’t believe that 4th and 25 play worked. #SwineIntervention
I had Alabama ahead of Clemson in my top 4, but I’ll admit I have a major SEC bias. I think if Clemson had played a team like Wake Forest instead of Florida State this weekend, the Tide would have taken the top spot.
I had Oklahoma State at 5 and Stanford at 6. I haven’t bought in to Iowa. Yes, they have wins over Northwestern and Wisconsin, but I don’t think Northwestern should be ranked. “But Northwestern beat Stanford!” some of you might say. While that might be true, Stanford has improved greatly since then and they have played much better competition. I do give the Hawkeyes credit for their consistency, but until they beat a good team, I’m not going to put them in my top 6. Baylor hasn’t really played anyone yet, but their schedule is very backloaded. It will be interesting to see how they do against Oklahoma this weekend.
North Carolina finally got into the top 25. (Yes, I know this is only week 2, but I think they should’ve been ranked last week.) Northwestern moved up despite barely beating Penn State. They have two very bad losses and I don’t really understand how they are ranked above the Tar Heels.
The American Conference has 4 teams ranked this week. Thats as many as the SEC and the Big 12. The Big 10 has 6 teams ranked. I think Michigan State should have fallen farther after their loss to a Nebraska team that had 3 wins going into the game. But I don’t have much respect for the Big 10 as a conference.
