College Football Playoffs change in 2nd week

By Anthony Caruso III

Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Alabama Crimson Tide are the two teams that have moved up in this week’s college football standings. The Tide are 2nd and the Irish are 4th.

The Tide defeated the LSU Tigers and held Heisman favorite Leonard Fournette to just 31-yards on the ground. They took the position that the Tigers had in the first college football playoff rankings, which was released last Tuesday night.

The Irish takes the fourth position from the Tide. They easily defeated the Pittsburgh Panthers at Heinz Field.

The Clemson Tigers hold onto the top ranked spot again for the second straight week. They had a close game with 19th ranked Florida State Seminoles, before winning 23-13.

Ohio State Buckeyes are also unchanged as they are the third ranked team. The team had Cardale Jones back under center, as J.T. Barrett was serving a one-game suspension for an OVI on Halloween morning.

Jones helped State win 28-14 over the Minnesota Golden Gophers. Barrett is expected to return to the starting signal caller next week.

It will be interesting to see what happens this weekend. Does the rankings stay the same next Tuesday evening, or does it change once again? We’ll have to wait a few days to see if these are the same teams in one week as well.
