With the loss to Ohio State, how far does Penn State fall? I could see a drop to 9th but I don't think they'll fall that far if they follow the same rationale they used for when Oklahoma lost.

Why worry about where they fall?

It about where they start in Tuesdays first CFP committee rankings.

 

Who you beat > Who you lost to

 

 

And the Florida players have been told McElwain has been dismissed.

The first rankings that actually matter:

I think that they got the top 6 right.

I don't really agree with Georgia over Alabama or Clemson at 4, but I think the Oklahoma beat Ohio State beat Penn State dynamic makes it difficult to have it any other way with that one.

Alabama has no current Top 15 wins so that's why Georgia is in front of them. Georgia has a win over #4. Should be a crazy 5 weeks.

FYI, the playoffs championship game sites for 2021-2024 were announced today.

2021- Hard Rock Stadium, Miami Gardens
2022- Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis
2023- New L.A. Stadium, Inglewood, CA
2024- nrg Stadium, Houston

This likely makes any playoff expansion more difficult under the current 12 year contract. Hancock said for the last two years of the current contract, they won't go to a new city, but back to the of the initial ten host cities.

In a game which neither coach needed to lose, it appears Kevin Sumlin's time at Texas A&M looks to be done.

the OK and OK St game is a shootout (its OK. 35 and OK. St 31 as of this post).  going to come down to who has the ball last.

This reminds me of that Baylor-TCU game a few years ago. While they are great offensively, I hope TCU or Iowa State actually win the Big 12 because they at least try on the defensive side of the ball.

The Big Ten is probably done in the national title race unless Wisconsin ( who is not very good) can run the table and some other stuff happens.

It's surprising enough for Iowa to beat Ohio State, but to so completely whip them is baffling.

Just getting reception coming back from the Clemson game, Ohio State and Penn State got exposed again?

"Exposed" is an understatement in Ohio State's case.

Oklahoma and Oklahoma State have combined for over 100 points and regulation isn't even over. I once attended a game that ended 3-0 in overtime.

I'm not actually sure Florida's scored that many points all season... :mellow:

 

edit: They have.  165 to be exact.  Yikes.

 

double edit: Did not expect an INT!  They baited him with that one.

Well, Boone Pickens doesn't like him but those last four plays may have cost Mike Gundy a shot at the Florida job on his own accord.
