With the final week of the 2020 NCAA college football regular season nearly her and the ensuing College Football Playoffs not far off, it’s time to take another look at the winners and losers in this week’s national Top 25. That said, let’s jump right into action so you can keep betting against their NCAFF odds.
College Football Top 25 – Winners and Losers After Week 15
While the CFP rankings were unchanged among the top five teams (Alabama, Notre Dame, Clemson, Ohio State and Texas A&M) eight teams moved up after last weekend’s results while three teams fell, with two of those taking massive hits. With all of that said, let’s find out which teams enter Week 16 as winners and losers as far as the CFP rankings are concerned.
College Football Rankings – Week 16
Winners – These teams all saw their CFP rankings improve following last week’s slate of action.
- No. 6 Iowa State (8-2)
- No. 8 Georgia (7-2)
The Bulldogs are up one spot after spanking Missouri 49-14 last weekend, but with two losses this season, it doesn’t matter.
- No. 9 Cincinnati (8-0)
The Bearcats fell one spot despite not playing last weekend. Cincinnati has given up just 13 touchdowns in eight games which is the fewest of any team in the country that has played at least eight times. The bad news is that the Bearcats have no wins against Power 5 opponents and one FCS win against overmatched Austin Peay.
- No. 10 Oklahoma (7-2)
- No. 11 Indiana (6-1)
- No. 12 Coastal Carolina (11-0)
The Chanticleers are up one spot in the CFP rankings after taking down Troy 42-38 in a knock-down, drag-out brawl the last time out. For this team to get into the national top 10 is insane huge, though their unblemished record won’t mean much come playoff time.
- No. 13 USC (5-0)
- No. 15 North Carolina (8-3) up 2
Losers – These teams all saw their CFP rankings take a hit after last weekend.
- No. 7 Florida (8-2) down 1
Florida saw its faint hopes for a miraculous CFP berth completely extinguished by losing to an unranked LSU team 37-34 on Saturday. In stunning fashion, the Gators only fell one spot from sixth to seventh. Huh?
Florida might still have a chance of reaching the CFP if they beat Alabama and win the SEC. Just so you know, the SEC champion has never been left out of the playoff.
- No. 18 Miami (8-2)
Previously 10th-ranked Miami took the biggest hit of any team in the national rankings by falling eight spots to No. 18 following their completely embarrassing 62-26 blowout loss against North Carolina.
- No. 25 Colorado (4-1)
