Rankings updated thru Week 11 (11/14/2015):
Alabama and Clemson remain atop the standings. Oklahoma replaces Stanford. Iowa remain in the top 4.
Highlights from Week 11:
ACC: North Carolina blows out Miami, making a strong statement that they should be considered a contender. All ranked teams hold serve for the week.
B1G: Iowa narrowly escapes Minnesota at home; Michigan has an even narrower escape at Indiana. No upsets this week.
Big XII: Oklahoma pulls a huge win at Baylor, essentially knocking the Bears and their weak schedule out of playoff contention. Oklahoma St hangs on to win in Ames, TCU barely avoids an embarrassing loss to winless Kansas.
PAC12: Upsets galore! Oregon takes out Stanford on the road, Washington St beats UCLA at the Rose Bowl, and Arizona hangs on in double OT to beat Utah. The Pac12 is now on the outside looking in at the playoff.
SEC: Alabama crushes Mississippi St and establishes their dominance in the SEC West. LSU takes itself out of the running with a terrible home loss to Arkansas.
Elsewhere: Houston mounts a huge comeback to stay unbeaten. Temple is blown out at South Florida.
Prediction for CFP top 4: Unchanged; Clemson, Alabama, Ohio St, Notre Dame. Oklahoma should make a big jump. I’ll post a comparison of polls, updated playoff scenarios, and a Week 12 preview after the new rankings are released Tuesday.
