I think Auburn should be ranked above Alabama right now. But if both teams win next week, I think Alabama should jump ahead of them.

But I agree with everything else.

So Arizona moves up one despite losing, while UGA goes down one while crapping on Missouri? Don't have an issue with the top 10 though.

Yep. I didnt have Arizona ranked highly after their win last week because I wanted to see that they were for real, since they had barely beaten bad teams in the three weeks prior. It took them missing three field goals to lose to USC, who I have ranked. That shows me that they seem to be for real, so I adjusted my rankings accordingly.

Georgia is not the same team without Todd Gurley, so I will continue to move them down as long as he is out.

Think about them critically for a moment and you'll probably come up with the answers.

Just a FYI, if FSU is in the playoffs, the Orange is required to take another ACC team, like Clemson, to play a team from the SEC/ Big Ten/ Notre Dame. ND can only be picked as a ACC rep by the non-Bowl Committee Bowls.

Otherwise, can't disagree too much with the list.

Actually, thats not true. The big 4 bowls are only obligated to take teams if their representative isnt in the playoffs. The top 4 teams in the rankings obviously go to the playoffs. #5-11 are automatically in the 4 major bowls, no matter what conference they are in. The 8th team to go to the 4 major bowls will either be #12 in the rankings, or it will be the highest ranked team from the non power conferences.

The playoff committee has no obligation to take anyone from any conference. If the SEC has 4 teams ranked from 5-11, then they will get 4 teams in the major bowls. If the ACC doesnt have anyone else besides Florida State in the top 12, then their second place representative will be in the TaxSlayer Bowl.

Quote:
How will the teams that are not in the playoff be selected for the other bowls that make up this new arrangement?
All conferences negotiated individual bowl contracts for their champions. Five conferences have arranged contracts for their champions to play in New Year’s bowl games — Atlantic Coast (Orange), Big Ten (Rose), Big 12 (Sugar), Pac-12 (Rose), and Southeastern (Sugar).

The highest ranked champion of the other five Football Bowl Subdivision conferences (the American Athletic, Conference-USA, Mid-American, Mountain West and Sun Belt), as determined by the selection committee, will play in one of the six New Year’s bowls. Other available berths will be awarded to the teams ranked highest by the committee. The committee will assign teams to bowls.

When the Fiesta, Cotton and Atlanta bowls are not hosting semifinal games, their participants will come from three sources: (1) The highest ranked champion among the five conferences listed in the paragraph above, (2) conference champions that are displaced when their contracted bowls host semifinals and (3) the remaining teams ranked highest in the committee’s rankings.

The committee will assign teams to the non-playoff bowls to create the most compelling matchups, while considering other factors such as geographic proximity, avoiding rematches of regular-season games and avoiding rematches of recent years’ bowl games.

Rankings are supposed to rank the best teams in order correctly?

Who has been the most impressive team out of TCU, Michigan State, and Oklahoma? That team should be ahead of the other two, no matter when they lose.

Quote:
In years when the ACC champion or another ACC team qualifies for the four-team national semifinals, then the next highest-ranked ACC team would play in the Orange Bowl.

The Orange Bowl will have the opportunity to take an SEC team that is not in the national semifinals or the Sugar Bowl, while the bowl could have a Big Ten team not in the semifinals or the Rose Bowl.

However, in the years the Rose and/or Sugar bowls host the national semifinals, the BCS commissioners have agreed that the Big Ten or SEC champion will not be placed in the Orange Bowl. Instead it will be placed in one of the three other access bowls. That decision was made to improve the value of the access bowls, sources told ESPN.

The ACC representative will play the highest available ranked team from Notre Dame, the SEC or the Big Ten. However, if the ACC's highest-ranked opponent would create a regular-season rematch, the Orange Bowl has the flexibility to avoid that rematch by taking the next highest-ranked team from Notre Dame, the SEC or Big Ten. The team that was "skipped" over would be placed in an access bowl as long as it meets the minimum ranking requirement.

ND, Alabama, TCU, Zona all too high IMO

What makes ND move up so much after the NC game? Just because they're undefeated?

Just spitballin here, but maybe because two of the teams they jumped lost and the third played horrible and should have been beaten by an unranked team?
