MI added to top four in rankings

MI added to top four in rankings

Following Saturday's 34-17 loss to No. 6 Georgia, Kentucky has dropped two spots to No. 11 in the College Football Playoff Rankings.

Nine teams are still alive entering Week 11: Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Washington State and West Virginia.

UM'S PLAYOFF PATH: It's pretty simple for MI: if they win out, the Wolverines are nearly assured a playoff berth. Not until they have a second loss of their own, anyway. West Virginia is right behind them and has a chance to vault up the rankings with a big end-of-season schedule. The Crimson Tide silenced critics who believed the team hasn't played anybody worth an ounce of salt this season after defeating No. 3 LSU in dominant fashion. Georgia was ranked fifth, followed by Oklahoma.

Assuming the top three unbeaten teams would get in by winning out, here are the paths to the playoff.

Alabama has been ranked in the top 5 for 49 straight weeks, the second longest streak to Miami's 55 weeks from October 8, 2000-Oct.

The only intrigue was which teams would fill out the other spots. The Bulldogs will see Alabama in the SEC title game as SEC East champions, but they can't look past their next three opponents starting this Sunday against Auburn.

With No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Clemson and No. 3 Notre Dame undefeated, the 13 members of the College Football Playoff selection committee had it fairly easy at the top this week, as No. 4 MI quietly joined the top four Tuesday as many had expected. But what Utah State is is an 8-1 team that's only loss was a seven-point loss on the road against No. 18 Michigan State.

Mike Leach's offense can put up a ton of points, but Washington State picking up a tough win against California shows they're a complete team. Could the SEC get two teams in that scenario? Yes.

The Sooners will be tested in its last game of the regular season when they face No. 9 West Virginia.

While the top-six teams are in comfortable spots, Ohio State found themselves ranked at No. 10 and nearly have the feeling of an outsider looking in, though they will have a chance because they still have to face MI.
