LSU stays ranked in College Football Playoff poll after loss at Alabama

LSU stays ranked in College Football Playoff poll after loss at Alabama

Following last weekend's 48-37 victory against Wake Forest, Notre Dame maintained its No. 3 position in the College Football Playoff rankings released Tuesday night. Michigan State takes the biggest week-to-week jump (in the history of the CFP, if I may add) up to No. 12 after upsetting the aforementioned Nittany Lions, setting up a juicy showdown between the Spartans and Buckeyes in Columbus this Saturday (Noon ET on Fox).

STILLWATER, OK - NOVEMBER 04: Quarterback Baker Mayfield No. 6 of the Oklahoma Sooners in between plays against the Oklahoma State Cowboys at Boone Pickens Stadium on November 4, 2017 in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

There may be no better team prime to create complete havoc that No. 10 Auburn. The pairings for the four-team national championship playoff are not determined until the final CFP rankings come out on December 3.

As has seemingly been the case over the first few seasons with the College Football Playoff, the first installment of the rankings being revealed was followed up with chaos.

What helps the Sooners and the Horned Frogs' cases to make the playoff, assuming that they meet again in the Big 12 Championship Game, is that the Selection Committee still respects the teams these two Big 12 frontrunners have played.

Washington (8-1) comes in at No. 9, and Auburn (7-2), the highest ranked two-loss team, is No. 10.

You can see the full rankings here.

Beating Notre Dame would answer a lot of questions. Oklahoma 6. TCU 7. No. 10 Auburn, No. 3 Notre Dame vs.

Michigan State (7-2) rode its upset of Penn State from No. 24 all the way to No. 12 this week, just behind No. 11 Southern California (8-2).
