College Football Playoff Rankings Prediction Top 5 Projection

5. Florida Gators 7-1

Last Week College Football Playoff Ranking: 6

The Case For This Spot: The Gators continue to roll since the loss to Texas A&M. All seven wins were against SEC teams and by double-digits, including last week’s 34-10 victory over Kentucky. It’s simple – beat Tennessee and LSU, win the SEC championship over Alabama, and get in.

Up Next: at Tennessee

4. Texas A&M Aggies 6-1

Last Week College Football Playoff Ranking: 5

The Case For This Spot: There isn’t much to get excited about after the listless – at least offensively – 20-7 win over LSU, but the win over Florida keeps looking amazing, and the one loss to Alabama on the road – even in a blowout – still acceptable.

Up Next: at Auburn

3. Clemson Tigers 8-1

Last Week College Football Playoff Ranking: 3

The Case For This Spot: The committee liked the body of work enough to give the Tigers the No. 3 spot last week, and there’s no reason to think any differently after a 52-17 win over Pitt with Trevor Lawrence back.

Up Next: at Virginia Tech

2. Notre Dame Fighting Irish 9-0

Last Week College Football Playoff Ranking: 2

The Case For This Spot: So the win over Clemson wasn’t good enough for you? Beating a strong North Carolina on the road cemented the No. 2 spot for now.

Up Next: Syracuse

1. Alabama Crimson Tide 8-0

Last Week College Football Playoff Ranking: 1

The Case For This Spot: There’s no other choice. There’s no more dominant team in college football, rolling through every game by double-digits against all SEC teams. The Tide won its last three games – including last week against Auburn – by a combined score of 146-16

Up Next: at LSU
