In a rather rapid revelation, not too much changed in the Top Spots within the rankings.  Basically Michigan State getting bumped out of the three spot & everyone else moving up behind them.  Despite beating Michigan, the committee put the Spartans behind the Wolverines.

Georgia, Alabama, Oregon, Ohio State, Cincinnati, Michigan, Michigan State, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, and Oklahoma State round out the Top 10.  Highest Group of Five spot ever, I believe

Oklahoma's hopes of a playoff spot got significantly hampered with a 27-14 loss to Baylor, notching the Sooners' first loss of the season. Meanwhile, Bryce Young of Bama pads out his Heisman resume throwing for 5 TDs in their 59-3 trouncing of New Mexico State.

The 3rd College Football Playoff Rankings remained unchanged from the previous week, mainly the Top 7.  With Oklahoma and Texas A&M both losing, the remainder of the Top 12 from the second rankings moved up.  The Sooners are out of the Top 10, and the Aggies dropped.  I wouldn't be shocked if Notre Dame can jump Cincinnati, but it'll probably have to happen in the next two rankings (and pretty much will if the Bearcats lose)

Cincinnati beat Notre Dame earlier this season, so very likely Cincinnati would have to lose and Notre Dame win out for that to happen.

If Cincinnati and Notre Dame both finish as 1 loss teams, Cincinnati would be ahead of Notre Dame for the same reason Oregon would be ahead of Ohio State.

Cincinnati even as an undefeated still needs some help. The Sooners are out of the picture and won't pass Cincinnati from behind, but Cincinnati still has to pass some people. If Alabama, Georgia, Oregon, and any 1 of the Big Ten trio finish as one loss teams, then your four playoff teams will be Georgia, Alabama, Oregon, and the Big Ten Champion. Cincinnati got some help when Baylor sent the Sooners to the grave but they need some help ahead of them.

Also, they won't make the playoffs as they have 3 losses, but a shout out to Wisconsin for doing a fantastic job of turning their season around. After starting 1-3 with a couple of blowout losses, the Badgers have won 6 in a row and are playing excellent football. Perhaps Wisconsin could get something like the Citrus Bowl or the Outback Bowl.
Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.

Georgia demolishes Charleston Southern 56-7, but the touchdown CS scored was rather daffy. Southern had the ball and QB Jack Chambers threw a pick. The Georgia player lost the ball to Southern WR Garris Schwarting who took it 65 yards for a score. It was thought the Georgia player's knee was down but the play did not get reviewed.

That should've been reviewed automatically.  Though it probably changes nothing since the game was over and it wasn't a big deal outside of the maintenance of the shutout.

Ohio State's backup also turned it over, and Michigan State scored to avoid a shutout.

The Buckeyes and Georgia were up 98-0 at halftime against their respective foes.  OSU is more impressive since Michigan State is a Big 10 school within the Power Five.

The division titles are on sight for the Tide and the Panthers at their home stadiums.  IOW, The SEC West and the ACC Coastal for Alabama & Pitt, respectively.  Outside of that game, it'll be a downer if Clemson backdoors into the ACC Title Game.  Which is odd to say, but it's a down year for the Tigers, while Wake Forest was rolling until they ran into North Carolina

Cincinnati beat Notre Dame earlier this season, so very likely Cincinnati would have to lose and Notre Dame win out for that to happen.

Yeah, I agree.  I just wouldn't be surprised if it happened.  Especially off of SOS & ND's play today.  However, Cincinnati is doing very well this weekend.  The committee is probably hoping the Tide, Buckeyes, and Ducks keep winning for another 2 weeks.

It's amazing how there's often-to-always one GOF team only that seems to rise to the occasion & never lose for 2 years (UCF was that program a couple years prior).  Of course there was TCU & BSU in 2009 - 2010, but that was the BCS era where even Power Six undefeated schools didn't make it in!

Oregon's chances of getting a seat at the table took a hit after #22 Utah's 38-3 trouncing of them. Ohio State and Cincinnati should be sitting pretty come the next rankings.

Florida coach Dan Mullen receives some parting gifts after the Gators drop to 2-6 in SEC play, losing to Missouri last night in OT. Thanks for playing, Dan.

The Fourth College Football Playoff Rankings, which we knew would feature 2 teams that would drop big time, are headlined with Georgia as the top team of course.  However, Ohio State jumps Alabama, not a surprise.  The bigger story?  Cincinnati is in the Top 4! 

Wake Forest fell from the Top Ten in addition to Oregon and Michigan State.  Baylor enters the Top 10, and in a Playoff first, we get our first Group of Five team into the Top Four with the Bearcats as the 4th place team as of 11/23/2021.

#2 Ohio State has been excused from the table after #5 Michigan topples them, 42-27. The next playoff rankings should be interesting as to how far Ohio State tumbles.

Meanwhile, Georgia has been installed as a 4-point favorite over Alabama in next week's SEC Championship (CBS, 3:30 PM).

Georgia is playoff bound no matter what happens in the SEC Championship Game next week.

Alabama, Michigan, and Cincinnati all control their own destinies next week. If these 3 teams win their conference championship games, we have our 4 playoff teams.
If one of those 3 in the above paragraph lose,the door opens for Notre Dame.

Michigan now takes spot no. 2 in the AP top  25. Cincinnati, Alabama and Oklahoma State round out the top 5. Ohio State drops to no. 7.
