Despite lack of drama at top, CFP rankings hint at chaos to come

8:20 PM ET

It sounds illogical, but the story of the CFP selection committee’s second rankings never was going to be the top four (or five).

Businesslike wins by No. 1 Georgia, No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Notre Dame, plus quality road victories by No. 4 Clemson and No. 5 Oklahoma, suggested that nothing would change at the top, and it didn’t. Tuesday’s rankings reset instead would shine a spotlight on the next set of contenders, namely unbeatens Wisconsin and Miami.

The committee’s message: There’s work left to do, as winning isn’t everything.

Wisconsin moved up only one spot to No. 8 after its 45-17 win at Indiana, even after Ohio State and Penn State plummeted out of the race. Miami moved up three spots to No. 7 after smashing Virginia Tech, ranked 13th in the committee’s first rankings. Both teams linger behind four one-loss teams: Notre Dame, Clemson, Oklahoma and No. 6 TCU.
