No. 3 Oregon, No. 4 Ohio State and No. 5 Cincinnati all moved up one spot behind No. 1 Georgia and No. 2 Alabama in the second College Football Playoff
rankings, which were released Tuesday night.
Two Southeastern Conference teams sat atop the ranking for a second straight week, but after Michigan State lost last weekend, at least one
spot in the top four was certain to change.
The committee simply bumped up the Ducks, Buckeyes and Bearcats and dropped Michigan State to No. 7 behind No. 6 Michigan.
The Spartans beat the Wolverines 37-33 just two weeks ago.
Unbeaten Oklahoma remained at No. 8 and Notre Dame and Oklahoma State rounded out the top 10.
There are three more regular-season rankings before the CFP selection committee sets the semifinal matchups and other New Year’s Six bowls
with its final Top 25 on Dec. 5.
The College Football Playoff semifinals will be played at the Orange Bowl and Cotton Bowl on Dec. 31.
The national championship game is scheduled for Jan. 10 in Indianapolis.
