As the regular season comes to a close, every score, result, and highlight from college football seems to matter even more. So when there are big shuffles, leads and shake-ups in the congress title and the College Football races come to the fore over the weekend, we should see some changes in the standings.

Georgia and Alabama remain at #1 and #2 in CBS Sports 130, respectively, our comprehensive rankings for every FBS team. Ohio State, Cincinnati and Oregon all rose one spot with the Buckeyes maintaining their recently established advantage over the Bearcats in terms of polling points. Ohio State and Oklahoma both jumped to Cincinnati – which had been in the top three for most of the season, just last week – but the Sooners relinquished their spot after the team’s first loss of the season.

Ohio State’s slight move into the third round stemmed from one of the better performances of the season, carrying away a Purdue team that is winning over both Iowa and Michigan State.

Baylor’s win over Oklahoma produced some of the most notable moves in the top 20 of this week’s rankings, starting with the Bears’ rising five places to No. 11. Baylor joins Ole Miss as Ole Miss. are the two with the highest rank. -teams in this week’s rankings, while Oklahoma dropped nine places to 12th making the Sooners eighth among the teams with one loss in our rankings.

Other tweaks outside the top 15 include a gentle landing for Texas A&M five places down to 16th after losing to Ole Miss, continuing the upward momentum to 19th Wisconsin as well as 25th Utah and San Diego State is back at the top 25 after beating Nevada over the weekend.

Biggest motivation

  • Number 43 Louisville (+17): The Cardinals showed on Lamar Jackson Day in Louisville, a 41-3 win over Syracuse, which greatly improved the team’s chances of creating a poor game. Louisville just needs one more win with Duke and Kentucky left on the schedule. Most importantly, however, the performance against Syracuse showed some of the team’s best football after losing its last four out of five games.
  • No. 27 Mississippi State (+13): Mississippi State’s historic comeback adds another notable win to one of the most unsettled records in the top 40. Wins over Texas A&M, NC State and now Auburn give confirmation to the top 25 in consideration. for the Bulldogs, but the number of losses (4) and the inclusion of defeats against LSU and Memphis undermine that argument. If the first two losses of that season – five points in total – are converted into wins, then this is the team in the top 15.
  • Number 40 Wyoming (+12): The passing of San Jose State as a market low added another rally for Wyoming shares, and we’re now tracking an 18-point move in the past two weeks. Blake Anderson’s incredible coaching work shined through with an 8-2 Aggies in Mountain West title match and a five-game winning streak.
  • Number 50 Texas Tech (+12): The Joey McGuire Effect! The Red Raiders introduced a new head coach and secured qualifying by beating Iowa State in the same week. Although Texas Tech fired and hired a coach during the same regular season, the final countdown will mark a 2021 marked by the Red Raiders exceeding pre-season expectations.
  • No. 33 Coastal Carolina (-10): Not having Grayson McCall on the roster proved expensive for Coastal Carolina, and now slimming hopes of winning the Belt of the Sun have almost gone up in smoke with head-to-head losses against the two remaining top teams. in the Eastern Sun Belt (Appalachian State and Georgia State).
  • No. 53 Miami (-11): After winning three ball games in a row, Miami fell into the wrongful position of another nail-biter. This matchup will be a little more frustrating when it comes to rival Florida State. The Hurricanes moved up our rankings after that winning streak, which included wins over NC State and Pitt, but that five-loss figure should lead to some rapid swings on the ballots. .
  • 29 Auburn (-12): There really isn’t much of a bad loss in Auburn’s record. The Tigers are 6-4 and all losses go to the top 30 teams of our standings. But when you’re trying to sort that crowd between the 15th and 30th spots, the leading state of Mississippi becomes the anchor point from a leaderboard perspective.
  • Number 74 Texas (-23): The drama surrounding Texas football exacerbated the reaction when trying to compare teams. But even a chilling breakdown of the Longhorns reveals a bottom-tier team here in the final stages of the 2021 season. Texas is 4-6 on a five-game losing streak, and in terms of current form quality , whether it was a bad team or not. Beating West Virginia and Kansas State could qualify the Longhorns, but it would be hard to imagine our voters getting Texas back into the top 40 before the season ends.
