Rivalry Week is here, and with it comes the greatest opportunity for some late-season chaos to shake up the final set of College Football Playoff rankings.
We got a taste of that on Saturday, however, with Oregon’s loss to Arizona State and Oklahoma’s flirtation with disaster against TCU. Ohio State’s 28-17 win over Penn State knocked the Nittany Lions out of the top 10 as well, setting the Buckeyes up as the Big Ten’s best remaining shot to make the Playoff.
LSU, Georgia and Alabama all took care of business out of the SEC to set up an interesting final two weeks where all three remain in contention for the Playoff. In the Pac-12, Utah demolished Arizona to keep its conference and Playoff hopes alive, as did Minnesota and Baylor in the Big Ten and Big 12, respectively.
With that, the latest AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll rankings after the Week 13 slate of games:
