Sport News College football qualifying rankings: who are the top four teams in the fourth CFP poll of 2021?

Sports news

Two other top 10 teams vying for the college football qualifiers lost on Saturday, creating even more work for the selection committee. Well, sort of.

While the committee was forced to reshuffle the standings after the losses of No.3 Oregon (38-7 to No.23 Utah) and No.7 Michigan State (56-7 at No. 4 in Ohio State), those results actually created a more streamlined top 25 in the closing weeks of the season.

The selection committee no longer has to explain why Michigan No. 6 ranked ahead of Michigan State, despite the Spartans’ victory over the Wolverines. They also don’t have to worry about the standings of Oregon, which beat Ohio State in Week 2, long before the Buckeyes’ resurgence. The only real issue created from Saturday’s game roster wasn’t even an issue at all: where to rank Alabama versus Ohio State.

The committee chose to push the Buckeyes past the Crimson Tide in the last standings. That decision ultimately won’t matter, as Alabama faces No.1 Georgia in the SEC Championship game. A win there would give Nick Saban and Co. the first seed. A loss would eliminate the Tide from the championship race.

The committee will pay special attention to “The Game” and Bedlam during Week 13, two rivalry games featuring 10-1 opponents in Ohio State, Michigan, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. This will further lighten the table for the playoffs, whose final standings are fast approaching.

With that, here are the 25 best teams of the last CFP ranking:
