Ohio State Rips Top Spot From FSU

CFP Staff
December 7, 2014

To state it bluntly - nobody saw this coming. "This" being Ohio State's 59-0 emasculation of Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship game. Even had the Buckeyes entered that game with J.T. Barrett at quarterback, such a lopsided result would still not have been fathomed. But Ohio State performed that number on the Badgers with, essentially, their third-string quarterback.

As a result, Ohio State jumped Florida State in the Congrove Computer Rankings released early Sunday morning. All the other expected winners held serve and the rest of the top 9 was largely unaffected.

The one other big flip was TCU edging past Baylor for 5th. It's not a move I agree with given the similar record of the two teams and Baylor's head-to-head win over the Horned Frogs, but a comparison of overall schedule strength and on-field results tilts in TCU's favor.

Oklahoma was the only team to exit the computer's top 25, and UCF was the new entrant at No. 25.

The SEC has 5 teams in the top 25, followed by the 4 each from the ACC, Big Ten and PAC-12. The Big 12 has 3 and the Mountain West has 2, while the American, CUSA and MAC each have 1.

Neither the Sun Belt or Independents have any schools in the top 25. The highest-ranked schools from those groups are Notre Dame (Independent) at No. 43, and Louisiana-Lafayette (Sun Belt) at No. 44.
