After the madness that was Week 11 in college football, let’s take a look at what the new rankings look like. Not that they matter much, since the College Football Playoff committee rankings come out on Tuesday, but nonetheless, the Ohio State Buckeyes demolished the Michigan State Spartans moving up to No. 8.

Georgia lost big to Auburn. Washington lost on Friday night on the road to Stanford. Notre Dame was embarrassed by Miami (FL) in primetime. Oklahoma finished with a win over TCU. And, Mississippi State was thiiiiiis close to a huge upset over Alabama.

There’s only two weeks left in the regular season for Ohio State to make its case for the CFP, and it’s a long shot. But, with the shakeup coming off a big Week 11 weekend, anything is possible.

The Buckeyes continue to hold the No. 1 spot in Bill Connelly’s S&P+ ratings, where they’ve remained steady since early on in the season.
