Predicting the Week 12 College Football Playoff rankings

·2 min read

It was another wild and crazy week of college football with some of the upsets being of the ranked-on-ranked variety.

Ole Miss held on to take out Texas A&M, Baylor finally handed Oklahoma its first loss, and unranked Mississippi State (which was ranked in the first College Football Playoff rankings) rallied to take down Auburn on the road.

Last week featured a lot of contention due to the fact that Michigan football leapfrogged rival Michigan State despite the head-to-head loss. Will there be more surprises in store in this week’s rankings?

Likely not nearly that controversial, but here’s how we expect it to play out this week.
