SMU fell against Memphis. With that and Appalachian State's loss Thursday, it looks like a very interesting race for the G5 spot on New Year's Day.

Will be interesting to see how the selection committee ranks the G5s come Tuesday.  I believe there should be G5s ranked but for sure 4 and I have them in this order.

Well the AP actually has 6 G5s ranked today. Navy joined the list. The AAC is clearly the best G5 conference this year although the MWC does have more P5 wins than they do.

Deified-Dozen-2019-Week-10a.jpg

Week 10 only saw one big game that was sure to impact our rankings, and that was Georgia defeating Florida in their annual border rivalry. The win put the Bulldogs at #6, back on the doorstep of the Top 4. Meanwhile Florida likely saw it's Playoff hopes end and dropped to #10. Oregon and Utah also moved up one spot each as they scored important wins on the road against tough conference opponents. With half of the Dozen having a bye, there wasn't much else to talk about in Week 10. Of course the big conversation following this week will be the release of the first College Football Playoff rankings. How close will the Deified Dozen voters be to the Playoff committee? History says we will have some differences (some maybe a surprise), but I think it'll be pretty close.

 

What Week 10 may have lacked in noteworthy matchups, Week 11 should make up for. For starters, there is the much anticipated #1 vs #2 face-off when LSU travels to Alabama. The Tide are early TD favorites in Vegas, and if Tua Tagovailoa is healthy, that might be about right. If he isn't, might want to think about taking the underdog Tigers. The other head-to-head matchup will see #5 Penn State travel to Minneapolis to take on #12 Minnesota. This will be the Gophers' first real test of the season, and that it comes agains the 5th ranked team in the country is a tough way to try to get a barometer on them; but it's a great opportunity for the Gophers to show they are for real. No other games jump off the screen, but at this time of year upsets always seem to lurk somewhere. Keep an eye on #9 Oklahoma hosting Iowa State. The last time the Cyclones went to Norman, in 2017, they left with a win.

Anyone want to make predictions as to how our rankings will compare with the first Playoff rankings?

I think OSU, LSU, Bama and Clemson will be their top 4, in that order. I do think there is a chance Penn St is over Clemson but I think Clemson barely edges them out.

My Top 4 Guess (in order): LSU, OSU, Alabama, Penn State.

 

I think Clemson beats PSU in an actual game, but PSU has the better resume right now in terms of schedule strength. And that will only widen if PSU beats Minnesota this weekend (so if the Lions aren't ahead now, I'd bet they will be next week).

Penn St got 4th.

I get why you would have Penn St over them.

But why do you have Bama over both/either of Clemson or Penn St?
