The fifth and penultimate edition of the College Football League Rankings was released Tuesday night with Georgia remaining the national #1 team. However, the next team in the rankings is a new team, with Michigan moving up to 2nd place after beating Ohio State in The Game during Rivalry Week. This is the Wolverines’ first trip into the top four since the end of the 2018 season; however, UM ultimately did not create the CFP field.

Alabama and Cincinnati took the final two places as they head into a conference championship game over the weekend. The Bearcats, 12-0 with two Power Five wins, remain the first team of the Group of Five program to place in the top four in the CFP Leaderboard. Cincinnati made history all season as the top-ranked team in the Group of Five program but now has a legitimate chance to make it to the knockout stages. Whether that materializes depends on the Cougars beating Houston in the AAC Championship Game and hoping Georgia beats Alabama in the SEC Championship Game.

Ohio State’s defeat knocked it out of the playoff picture entirely. Aside from the current top four, the only other teams with an actual finishing ability among those spaces are Oklahoma State (vs Baylor in the Big 12 Championship Game) and Notre Dame, which has no game any championship to play and just lost coach Brian Kelly to LSU on Monday.

In the history of CFP, no team ranked outside the top 7 at the end of this season has been moved into the four-team group after the championship games. Team 7 has twice made it to the top 4: Oklahoma in 2017, Georgia in 2019.

Let’s take a look at the full CFP Top 25 Ranking. CBS Sports hitter Jerry Palm will add his analysis shortly.
