Good morning to everyone but especially to…

THE GEORGIA BULLDOGS, OHIO STATE BUCKEYES, MICHIGAN WOLVERINES AND TCU HORNED FROGS

After a hectic weekend across the college football landscape, there’s been some major reshuffling atop the latest College Football Playoff rankings.

Here’s the new top 10.

  • 1. Georgia (prev. 3)
  • 2. Ohio State (prev. 2)
  • 3. Michigan (prev. 5)
  • 4. TCU (prev. 7)
  • 5. Tennessee (prev. 1)
  • 6. Oregon (prev. 8)
  • 7. LSU (prev. 10)
  • 8. USC (prev. 8)
  • 9. Alabama (prev. 6)
  • 10. Clemson (prev. 4)

Georgia predictably took over the top spot after dominating Tennessee, and the Bulldogs have the inside path to represent the SEC East in the conference title game. Ohio State, meanwhile, stayed put even after an underwhelming 21-7 win over a one-win Northwestern team. The Buckeyes not losing ground is a testament to their overall dominance, which includes an average winning margin of 30 points. That’s second in FBS, only behind Michigan, which jumped to third thanks to the Tennessee and Clemson losses. The Wolverines and Buckeyes are still on track for a potential win-and-in showdown in just over two weeks.

And finally TCU jumped into the top four for the first time since 2014. The biggest reason the undefeated Horned Frogs were No. 7 last week was their perceived lack of game control. They’ve trailed in the second half in four games, including this past weekend, when they trailed sub-.500 Texas Tech entering the fourth quarter. But now, TCU can go forward knowing it’s in win-and-in territory from here on out.

THE ALABAMA CRIMSON TIDE

For the first time since the rankings started in 2014, neither Alabama nor Clemson are in the top six. This comes on the heels of the Crimson Tide losing a heartbreaker at LSU and Clemson getting demolished at Notre Dame.

You never say never in college football, but it seems like for the first time, Alabama won’t be in the playoff. In fact, at No. 8, the Crimson Tide are still overrated, writes our college football reporter Barrett Sallee.

  • Sallee: “Reputation isn’t supposed to be factored in to the decisions made by the CFP Selection Committee, but it’s clear that Alabama gets an exception. … Alabama only has one win over a ranked team, a 20-19 victory over No….
