Alabama Football held their position as the No. 8 team in the CFB Play off Selection Committee’s second rating on Tuesday night. Among the elite teams, the Alabama Crimson Tide was not the only one in motion. From the first Playoff rankings, all eight of the top spots remained the same.

The eight best teams were followed by a significant amount of fluctuation. At No. 9 and No. 10, Ole Miss and Penn State entered the top ten.

The following is a list of the entire Top 25 Playoff rankings. In conclusion, nine teams were rated the same as last week, five teams dropped, and eleven teams—some of which were unranked the week before—rose in the rankings.

Fans of Alabama football are a little taken aback by the Tide’s victory over LSU not elevate the Crimson Tide in the rankings. All it accomplished was make Alabama’s position at No. 8 more secure. With any luck, the Bengal Tigers will prevail and give the Crimson Tide more support in the future.

There’s not much reason to argue at this stage of the season when the Texas Longhorns are once again ranked No. 7, ahead of Alabama. Similar to Alabama, the Longhorns have triumphed against three teams who were rated by the Selection Committee.

Fans of Alabama football are starting to wonder if Texas, the Big 12 champion, has a chance to advance to the playoffs rather than Alabama, the SEC champion. Though it seems improbable, it seems like no Power Five conference will have two playoff teams this year. An Alabaman The Crimson Tide should qualify for the playoffs with a victory over Georgia.

The Selection Committee’s rankings are concerning since Oregon is placed higher than Texas and Alabama. Oregon had one victory over a squad that was rated by the Selection Committee, in contrast to the Crimson Tide and the Longhorns.

The reassignment of North Carolina to the 24th level in the rankings casts even more doubt on the committee’s judgment. The Tar Heels were unranked after two defeats. They seem to have beaten Campbell 59-7, which is what got them to No. 24. The FCS squad Campbell’s Fighting Camels has a poor record. When Alabama football wins Chattanooga, supporters don’t expect this kind of bounce.

Penn State might potentially benefit the Crimson Tide by knocking on Saturday off Michigan. Would a Penn State victory elevate the Nittany Lions above the Crimson Tide, though, if Ole Miss fell to Georgia?
