On Tuesday night the penultimate College Football Playoff rankings were released. After a tremendous Rivalry Weekend, the playoff rankings saw significant upheaval that will lead to an interesting final weekend of college football before the playoff is officially set.
After Ohio State knocked off Michigan in impressive fashion, the Buckeyes jumped up to No. 6 - just behind Oklahoma. That puts the Sooners in a great spot to make the playoff over the Buckeyes if both programs win this weekend.
College Football Playoff committee chair Rob Mullens revealed why Oklahoma sits ahead of Ohio State. It all comes down to Oklahoma's "historic offense."
If Oklahoma and Ohio State both win, the Sooners would likely take a playoff spot over the Buckeyes. Oklahoma and Ohio State fans will keep an eye on the SEC title game that pits Alabama against Georgia.
If Georgia beats Alabama, the Bulldogs would claim a spot in the playoff. The committee would then need to decide between Alabama and Oklahoma/Ohio State if both win.
