Notre Dame moves up to No

Alabama, of course, will be No. 1 in the second week of the College Football Playoff rankings, as the Crimson Tide are coming off a dominant win at No. 3 LSU.

"Their defense is extremely strong, " selection committee chairman Rob Mullens said of LSU still being ranked No. 7 despite having two losses.

Prior to Saturday's win, Syracuse entered the week ranked No. 19 in the playoff rankings and No. 22 in the AP Poll, the team's first ranking since 2001. The Tigers will face the Arkansas Razorbacks this upcoming Saturday.

It was even Groundhog Day for No. 8 Washington State, which remains the Pac-12's only one-loss and highest-ranked team, and UCF, which remained status quo at No. 12.

Whitaker has spoken critically about the Mueller probe and spoke in a TV interview about choking off its funding. Florida attorney general Pam Bondi , who has appeared with Trump at campaign events, has also been floated .

Unsurprisingly, Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and MI made up the top four this week, with Georgia and the Sooners falling in line behind that group. Georgia is the second highest-ranked one-loss team after MI. Not only will that be a must win game for Oklahoma, but it also likely will set up a rematch of the same two teams the following weekend in Arlington, Texas, for the Big 12 championship and the conference's prime postseason bowl spot. The Bulldogs would play No. 6 Oklahoma, which is the projected Big 12 champion in this ranking.

MI has cracked the top four in the College Football Playoff rankings for the first time since Week 13 in 2016.

Notre Dame is now No. 3, with MI moving up to No. 4. No. 8 Ohio State is a 3.5-point favorite at No. 24 Michigan State, while No. 10 Washington State is a six-point favorite, up 1.5 from the opening line, for its trip to Colorado.
