The Georgia Bulldogs are the No. 1 team in the latest edition of the College Football Playoff Rankings. Georgia controlled the previous top-ranked team in the CFP rankings, Tennessee, in Week 10. The Bulldogs (9-0) also have a dominant win over Oregon.
Week 10 featured a pair of underdogs defeating highly-ranked CFP foes. LSU upset Alabama and Notre Dame dominated Clemson. TCU, Michigan, Oregon, and Ohio State all continue to win. Michigan-Ohio State game, which is scheduled for the last week of the regular season, could be one of the best games in rivalry history.

➤ Lincoln Riley (#8 USC)

More media reactions
Either way, if Tennessee wins out, it’s probably in the CFP.
And if TCU wins out, it’s probably in the CFP.
