Predicting the CFP rankings after Week 5

Week 5 in the college football world had some interesting games and a couple of upsets.

Oklahoma lost its second game of the year, to TCU this time. Texas A&M found itself in the losing column once again after losing to Mississippi State. And after looking like world beaters through the first four weeks, Minnesota laid an egg at home against Purdue.

Kansas continued to roll after beating Iowa State to stay undefeated. While Clemson and Mississippi won signature games against NC ST and Kentucky, respectively.

In our new iteration of predicting the College Football Rankings through Week 5, Ohio State remains on top. But after squeaking by Missouri on Saturday, Georgia dropped a spot.

There are four new teams that entered the rankings after Week 5.

You can see last week’s prediction below, and here are our CFP predictions through Week 5.
