Carnahan Chronicles College Football Rankings (Week 8)

There’s still plenty to be decided as we get closer to figuring out which four teams will be the last program’s standing to take part in the new college football playoff. Although nine of the 10 teams listed below are the same names tabbed in the top spots of the Associated Press Top 25, these rankings vary quite a bit. Here’s this week’s Carnahan Chronicles College Football Rankings:

#1 (1) Florida State (7-0) – Won 31-27 vs No. 5 Notre Dame
#2 (2) Mississippi State (6-0) – Did not play
#3 (3) Mississippi (7-0) – Won 34-3 vs Tennessee
#4 (6) Oregon (6-1) – Won 45-20 vs Washington
#5 (5) Notre Dame (6-1) – Lost 31-27 at No. 2 Florida State
#6 (7) Auburn (5-1) – Did not play
#7 (10) Alabama (6-1) – Won 59-0 vs No. 21 Texas A&M
#8 (9) Michigan State (6-1) – Won 56-17 at Indiana
#9 (8) TCU (5-1) – Won 42-9 vs No. 15 Oklahoma State
#10 (–) Kansas State (5-1) – Won 31-30 at No. 11 Oklahoma

Dropped out – #4 Baylor (lost 41-27 at West Virginia)

NOTES: Also in the Top 25 last week, No. 17 Arizona State (5-1) won 26-10 vs No. 23 Stanford (4-3)… Because FSU is the defending national champions they remain atop these rankings… So far this season Oregon has lost to Arizona (5-1), who turned around the following week and lost to USC (5-2)… Notre Dame has lost to FSU, Auburn has lost to Mississippi State, Alabama has lost to Mississippi, Michigan State has lost to Oregon, TCU has lost to Baylor, and Kansas State has lost to Auburn… Matchups featuring teams in the AP Top 25 this week include No. 3 Mississippi (7-0) at No. 24 LSU (6-2) and No. 19 Utah (5-1) vs No 20 USC (5-2).
