LSU ranked #7 in CFB playoff rankings

The top 10 shook out like this: No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Clemson, No. 3 Notre Dame, No. 4 Michigan, No. 5 Georgia, No. 6 Oklahoma, No. 7 LSU, No. 8 Washington State, No. 9 West Virginia and No. 10 Ohio State. Georgia rounds out the top five after winning at Kentucky over the weekend.

The playoff picture cleared up after a weekend where several contenders asserted themselves. If Penn State and Michigan State both manage to fall one more time this season, the Iowa Hawkeyes would be the third highest ranked team in the CFP rankings leaving them a potentially clear shot at playing in the Citrus Bowl.

The biggest surprise is LSU falling only four spots despite losing 29-0 to Alabama. If it was down to a one-loss Ohio State and a one-loss West Virginia, Oklahoma, or Washington State, I think the committee gives the spot to the Buckeyes due to their corruptness.

No. 7-ranked West Virginia's remaining games are at home this weekend against a reeling TCU team and at Oklahoma State the following weekend before hosting Oklahoma on November 23 in a prime-time TV game. After 10 weeks of college football action, the College Football Playoff committee convened to determine the top 25 teams in the nation. Cincinnati and South Florida still loom on the schedule, but there's no way wins over either of those teams would put UCF within striking distance of the top four entering conference championship weekend.

Kirby Smart told reporters in his weekly press conference he couldn't care where his team is ranked at the moment. All things being equal, Texas would earn the tiebreaker over the Sooners by virtue of its head-to-head win in this year's Red River game, and it would be the Longhorns who earn a championship rematch, only with West Virginia. Ohio State rounds out the top ten.

The only intrigue was which teams would fill out the other spots.

Check back after three more regular season games and the SEC championship tilt with No. 1 Alabama for the final rankings that matter for the Bulldogs. So both teams have one loss, but West Virginia has the best win, the best loss, and it has played the more hard schedule. This ranking coupled with the relative weakness of the Pac-12 means LSU could stay ahead of Washington State even if it wins out and takes the Pac-12.

The weather did the Mountaineers no favor by forcing the cancellation of West Virginia's game at North Carolina State in September. Also, Georgia and Alabama host No. 24 Auburn and No. 16 Mississippi State.
