We’re one week closer to the College Football Playoff. And while the top four teams in last week’s rankings won, several squads who were lurking in the shadows made waves this week.

Some of them, for good reasons. Others, not so much. Here’s the full poll:



























RANK SCHOOL RECORD PREVIOUS
1 Georgia 9-0 1
2 Alabama 9-0 2
3 Notre Dame 8-1 3
4 Clemson 8-1 4
5 Oklahoma 8-1 5
6 TCU 8-1 8
7 Miami (Fla.) 8-0 10
8 Wisconsin 9-0 9
9 Washington 8-1 12
10 Auburn 7-2 14
11 USC 8-2 17
12 Michigan State 7-2 24
13 Ohio State 7-2 6
14 Penn State 7-2 7
15 Oklahoma State 7-2 11
16 Mississippi State 7-2 16
17 Virginia Tech 7-2 13
18 UCF 8-0 18
19 Washington State 8-2 25
20 Iowa 6-3 NR
21 Iowa State 6-3 15
22 Memphis 8-1 23
23 NC State 6-3 20
24 LSU 6-3 19
25 Northwestern 6-3 NR

The top five teams from last week’s rankings remain untouched, but No. 5 Oklahoma likely helped itself down the road. If Georgia, Alabama, Notre Dame or Clemson loses, the Sooners have a stronger case to replace them than they did before beating Oklahoma State. OU fans may be disappointed their squad didn’t budge, but Baker Mayfield’s legendary performance could pay dividends later on.
