Michigan takes over second place after defeating Ohio

Michigan climbed third in the latest College Football Playoffs rankings released Tuesday night, moving up for its first appearance in the four-team playoffs.

Wolverines (11-1) rose after defeating Ohio State University 42-27 on Saturday. This caused the Birth to fall from 5th place to 7th place this week. This is the first victory over Michigan’s archival since 2011, and it was the first time the Wolverines were moved to the Big Ten Championship Game in Indianapolis against West Division Champion Iowa on Saturday night.

Michigan is a 10.5 point favorite to win the Big Ten title battle and will surely push Big Blue to the first college football playoff field since the playoffs began in the 2014 season. Michigan was the last to win the national championship in 1997 and shared the title with Nebraska.

Georgia remained in first place and Alabama remained in third place despite struggling to get rid of Auburn in the four extra-time iron bowls.

Cincinnati, along with Georgia, one of the two remaining undefeated teams in the country, was held in 4th place with the aim of becoming the first team from outside the Power Five Conference to reach the playoffs.

Oklahoma State University defeated rival Oklahoma State 37-33, rising 2nd to 5th. The Cowboys will face Baylor in the Big 12 Championship Game, finish as the 12-1 Conference Champion, and have a debate that fits their playoff hopes.

Oklahoma State University has jumped over the 6th Notre Dame University. The University of Notre Dame maintained the putt as it deals with what happened after Brian Kelly left the Fighting Irish program this week and took on the same job at LSU.

Behind the Ohio State University, Olemis overtook Baylor to 8th and pushed Bears to 9th. Oregon closed the top ten.

23rd place Kentucky (8-4) and 24th place Louisiana (11-1) entered the ranking. Wisconsin has fallen from 14th place to the top 25 after losing to Minnesota. UTSA also dropped out of the Top 25 after the season first lost to northern Texas.
