The College Football Playoff Committee has released its second set of rankings. Alabama (7-2), Clemson (8-1) and Tennessee (8-1), all ranked in the top six, lost this weekend, allowing considerable movement for other teams in the top 10.
Georgia (9-0) moved into first place after defeating Tennessee 27-13. Volunteer’s loss, as well as Alabama’s loss to LSU (7-2), paved the way for the TCU Horned Frogs (9-0) to jump to fourth place after defeating Texas Tech (4-5) in Fort Worth.
TCU wasn’t the only Big 12 Conference school to climb the ladder; Texas (6-3), after a ranked victory over Kansas State (6-3), was placed in 18th place. The Horned Frogs have the opportunity to clinch a Big 12 Championship appearance with a win over the Longhorns on Saturday.
Although Texas have three more losses than the undefeated Frogs, coach Sonny Dykes and TCU have a tough task ahead of them.
