College Football Playoffs Ranking: LSU jumps to No. 1 in Ohio, while Clemson, Georgia, climbs into the top four of the CFP



The second College Football Playoff Ranking of the 2019 season has arrived. After defeating Alabama on the street at Bryant Denny Stadium, the Tigers have captured 1st place in Ohio State. The Buckeyes move up to second place after stifling the Big Ten tomato can Maryland. The enormous power of LSU is hard to beat up to this point, especially if it's a table runner, but there is not much difference between it and OSU. They can swing back and forth over the next few weeks, but probably not this week as the state of Ohio in Rutgers plays an even worse team.

Behind these two teams, Clemson and Georgia move from the first out-of-field teams to # 3 and # 4, respectively. These tigers remain undefeated after defeating NC State 55-1

0 last week while the Bulldogs are the best-placed one-loss team, beating Missouri 27-0.

Georgia over Alabama is the country most discussed. – and overreacted to placement. It does not matter where these teams are placed now. What matters is that Georgia needs no help from anyone to do the college football playoffs. Win, become a 12-1 SEC Champion, and the Dawgs will be there. The Crimson Tide # 5 needs help, maybe a lot. That would be true if their leaderboards were changed this week.

Remember, the playoffs are not starting today and the season may be going crazy in the last few weeks. All four squares of the field remain open with rivalry games and top 25 showdowns throughout the 2019 season.

Let's take a look at the entire CFP ranking among the top 25. Keep reading to get more analysis on these rankings.

Minnesota was the big engine this week ninth from seventeenth place to eighth place. The Golden Gophers triumphed over earlier Penn State No.4. The CFP selection committee has always said head to head is a factor, but not the only one. When the Nittany Lions fell to ninth place, they showed that, at least in this case, it was a factor in the ranking.

Oregon and Utah may have a loss but are both ahead of Minnesota because the Gophers' resume is just as good. Despite a home win against the Nittany Lions of high quality, her schedule is still bad. Penn State's CV is clearly better than that of both Pac-12 teams, but the committee obviously felt that it could not be ahead of Minnesota and put in three places for a direct result. If it had not been this week, it would probably have been next week if Minnesota had won in Iowa and beaten Penn State Indiana.

There are, if any, very few surprises in the ranking. It was an unusual week in which you could classify the teams of the previous week pretty much. Texas replaced Wake Forest in the ranking and left Clemson in the top 15 as the only ACC team.

The biggest surprise for me was that the SMU turned down in favor of Appalachian State. While I like the mountaineers, their schedule does not compare with that of the Mustangs, and the only loss of the SMU goes to Memphis. App. State has not yet played a team in the ranking and will not do so again this season. It's hard to justify a place in the top 25 for them.

Remember, be quiet. We have four weeks left.
