We wondered going into tonight’s playoff rankings whether the committee would drop Alabama following the loss of superstar QB Tua Tagovailoa.
Turns out that they stuck to their guns and left Alabama at #5, giving the Tide the opportunity to state their case in Auburn. The top seven stayed completely unchanged:
- Ohio State
- Penn State
This should have been expected, as nothing really happened this week to shake up the rankings. With all three of the #5-7 teams heavily favored this Saturday, it may well be the same story.
At this stage, this is about all we can ask for.
