Top 5 doesn't change in second edition of College Football Playoff rankings

Cowboys drop to No. 15 in latest College Football Playoff rankings after Bedlam loss

Washington (8-1) comes in at No. 9, and Auburn (7-2), the highest ranked two-loss team, is No. 10.

The only competition to unseat Georgia was Alabama, which defeated LSU 24-10.

The remaining games comprise the New Year's Six access bowl games - Orange, Cotton, Peach and Fiesta - which will select the highest-ranked remaining teams that fill their criteria.

No change in the top four after that group takes care of business over this past weekend.

Before being selected as the No. 1 team in the first College Football Playoff poll last week, the last time the Bulldogs were a top-ranked team was in the preseason AP and coaches polls in 2008. Oklahoma State, which fell to Oklahoma in Week 10, is at No. 15.

"What really matters is how you play the rest of the season, how you focus the rest of the season and how you stay focused the rest of the season". The Selection Committee doesn't seem to find the conference's lack of defense indefensible, as it put its two best teams as the first two out. No. 2 Alabama will play Mississippi State (7-2), which held down No. 16 for a second consecutive week, and No. 8 Wisconsin will welcome Iowa, which debuted at No. 20. Oklahoma 6. TCU 7.

TCU sits at No. 6 coming off a dominating performance against Texas.

What helps the Sooners and the Horned Frogs' cases to make the playoff, assuming that they meet again in the Big 12 Championship Game, is that the Selection Committee still respects the teams these two Big 12 frontrunners have played. Augmenting that status is Notre Dame owns the most quality/ranked victories, and all resoundingly, versus No. 11 USC (49-14), No. 12 Michigan State (38-18) and No. 23 North Carolina State (35-14). The Hurricanes will be in the top five next week with a win on Saturday.
