Playoff Committee Top 25
Of the top 7 teams in last week's rankings, only Florida State played and defeated a fellow FBS school with a winning record. Three members of that top 7 played division cellar-dwellers (Oregon vs. Colorado, Mississippi State vs. Vanderbilt, and Ohio State vs. Indiana), one member was idle after playing a next-to-last-place team (TCU vs. Kansas), one played a below-.500 team (Baylor vs. Oklahoma State), and one played a FCS team (Alabama vs. Western Carolina). And yet the top 7 are unchanged in the newest edition of the College Football Playoff selection committee's rankings. Other puzzling aspects include a 1-loss TCU remaining two spots higher than the 1-loss Baylor team that the Horned Frogs lost to, a 3-loss Auburn at No. 15 when it hasn't beaten a FBS school in its last 3 games, and Utah hanging on at No. 25 when they are 4-4 in their last 8 games. Marshall, the only other unbeaten team in the FBS, received token recognition at No. 24 while a 2-loss Boise State entered one spot higher. The Herd and the Broncos are the first teams from non-Power 5 conferences to be included in the committee's five iterations of rankings. Among the committee's top 10 are 3 schools from the SEC, 2 each from the Big Ten, Big 12 and PAC-12, and 1 from the ACC. The computer's Top 10 is comprised of 3 teams from the SEC, 2 each from the Big 10 and Big 12, and 1 each from the ACC, CUSA (Marshall) and PAC-12.
 
FSU No. 1; Oregon Moves To 3rd In Computer;
Coaches Reward 'Bama With No. 1 For Beating FCS Team

Florida State and Ohio State remain 1-2 in the CCR Top 128. But somehow, voters in the Coaches' Poll believe Alabama's win over FCS member Western Carolina was more meaningful than the 'Noles fending off Boston College 20-17 for their 27th straight win.
