The College Football Playoff Rankings Will Need A Revision. How Will Tennessee Fare?

After Saturday, the College Football Playoff will definitely need a reshuffling. 

No. 5 Tennessee took care of business on Saturday, maybe even going too far and running up the score to impress the committee. 

As for some other teams, their rankings will likely be different come Tuesday. Here’s a look at how the top-six teams performed on Saturday. 

No. 1 Georgia 

The Bulldogs – Tennessee’s lone conqueror – dominated Mississippi State 45-19. 

Stetson Bennett finished the day 25-37 passing with 289 yards and three touchdowns. He also had two interceptions. 

Georgia travels to Lexington to face Kentucky. Kentucky faced a devastating loss to Vanderbilt on Saturday, which may fire up the Wildcats to prove themselves against Georgia.

No. 2 Ohio State

The Buckeyes defeated Indiana 56-14 on Saturday. 

The game was never in question for Ohio State. Unfortunately for the Buckeyes, leading rusher Miyan Williams was forced to leave the game early. His status will be something to watch as their season progresses. 

Ohio State travels to unranked Maryland next week.

No. 3 Michigan 

The Wolverines handled Nebraska pretty easily, winning 34-3 on Saturday. 

Blake Corum rushed for 162 yards on 28 carries for Michigan. 

Michigan hosts Illinois next week. Illinois ranks as No. 21 in the CFP poll and should prove a great test for Michigan.

No. 4 TCU 

A lot of Tennessee fans were rooting for the other UT on Saturday.

TCU defeated No. 18 Texas 17-10 on Saturday night. The Horned Frogs moved to 10-0 following the victory. 

TCU held its own in Austin. Although it wasn’t pretty, a win is a win. 

Now on their way to a Big-12 championship game, TCU may end up spoiling Tennessee’s chances at sneaking into the playoff. 

The Horned Frogs travel to Baylor next week. 

No. 6 Oregon 

Tennessee fans were also probably rooting for Washington on Saturday night.

No. 25 Washington upset Oregon 37-34 on Saturday. 

After Washington went up three, Oregon had about 50 seconds to try and drive down the field to send the game to overtime. 

In a great chance for Bo Nix to prove himself and save Oregon’s chances at a playoff berth, he couldn’t do it. The Ducks had to resort to a last-second Hail Mary that wasn’t even close. 

Oregon will likely drop in ranking on Tuesday, and its next game isn’t easier. 

Oregon hosts No. 13 Utah next week.
