The second edition of the official selection committee College Football Playoff rankings top 25 has been unveiled.
Most will have their eyes glued to the news tonight, as results of the dramatic 2016 Presidential Election roll in, but we also have some big College Football Playoff news as well. The selection committee has updated its top 25 after the Week 10 games, and as you can imagine, there has been a decent shake-up.
The top three remains the same, with Alabama holding strong at No. 1 after shutting out LSU, Clemson sticking at No. 2 after blasting Syracuse, and Michigan holding at No. 3 following a 59-3 win over Maryland.
The first big change is at No. 4, where Washington jumps into the valuable final Playoff slot, after Texas A&M's huge loss to Mississippi State.
In all likelihood, Washington would have overtaken A&M anyway, if the Huskies manage to win out, but UW fans will likely rest easier knowing that if things ended today, their team would be in. Of course, things do not end today. There is still plenty of football to be played.
After the top four, Ohio State and Louisville, last week's No. 6 and 7 teams, slide up a spot each. Ohio State had an incredibly impressive 62-3 win over Nebraska, which has taken a big fall in this poll itself, while Louisville made easy work of Boston College, 52-7.
This coming week features a number of games important for the College Football Playoff hunt, including Baylor at Oklahoma, Pitt at No. 2 Clemson, Wake Forest at No. 6 Louisville, and USC at No. 5 Washington, this week's College GameDay host game.
Entering the rankings: USC and Arkansas. Baylor and Florida, both of which lost big last week, fall all the way out after being fairly high last week.
