The third installation of the College Football Playoff rankings were released Tuesday night, and the Oregon Ducks stay at No. 6 for a third straight week.
Oregon State rose one spot to No. 11 following their blowout win over Stanford. Unlike the previous two weeks, the Beavers are not the highest-ranked two-loss team in the rankings, with 8-2 Missouri jumping five spots up to No. 9 in the rankings after a 36-7 domination of then-No. 13 Tennessee. Louisville (9-1) checks in at No. 10.
Georgia takes over the top spot at No. 1 in the rankings from Ohio State, who drops to No. 2. Michigan remains at No. 3 and Florida State stays at No. 4.
Washington (10-0) remains at No. 5 followed by the Ducks, whose lone loss is by three points to Washington in Seattle, at No. 6.
Texas (9-1) remains one spot ahead of Alabama (9-1) at No. 7 and No. 8 respectively. The Longhorns have a head-to-head win in Tuscaloosa earlier this season.
Arizona bolsters the Pac-12 strength of schedule by jumping four spots to No. 17 in the poll. Utah makes it five Pac-12 teams in the CFP at No. 23.
