Newest College Football Playoff Field Announced, It Features Multiple Changes

This past weekend featured a number of huge games, including Ohio State's surprising blow out win over Michigan State, and Alabama's win overtime escape from Death Valley. Meanwhile, last week's No. 3 team, Auburn, dropped a game to a Texas A&M team that had been reeling in recent weeks.

Obviously, all of these games had a big effect on the College Football Playoff's selection committee's thinking for this week's Top 25 rankings and four team playoff field. Here is how things shook out:

Mississippi State is likely entrenched at No. 1 unless it loses. That shake-up may come this weekend, when the top-ranked Bulldogs travel to Tuscaloosa to face No. 5 Alabama. No. 3 Florida State has a tricky game of its own, when it travels to Miami to face Duke Johnson and the Hurricanes. No. 2 Oregon has a bye, while new No. 4 TCU has an easy game at Kansas. No. 6 Arizona State travels to Oregon State on Saturday.
