NCAA Football: Oregon State at Stanford Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports
  1. Alabama 13-0
  2. Clemson 13-0
  3. Notre Dame 12-0
  4. Ohio State 12-1
  5. Oklahoma 12-1
  6. UCF 12-0
  7. Georgia 11-2
  8. Michigan 10-2
  9. Washington 10-3 - The Huskies hold at nine. It seems there’s a big game between the Top 8 and the rest, but the Huskies can break that by beating Ohio State in the Rose Bowl.
  10. Washington State 10-2 - The Cougars were disrespected by the CFP committee. They have to show up in their bowl this year though if they want to stop that kind of thing from happening moving forward.
  11. Florida 9-3
  12. LSU 9-3
  13. West Virginia 8-3
  14. Texas 9-4
  15. Kentucky 9-3
  16. Penn State 9-3
  17. Utah 9-4 - Utah shouldn’t drop for losing the championship game by seven points. They’ve proven themselves as a Top 20 team, even with a back up QB and RB.
  18. Syracuse 9-3
  19. NCState 8-3
  20. Northwestern 8-5
  21. Mississippi State 8-4
  22. Iowa State 8-4
  23. Texas A&M 8-4
  24. Missouri 8-4
  25. Stanford 8-4 - The Cardinal lost four tough games to good teams and had nice wins over some solid bowl teams. They belong in the Top 25.
