Ohio State Takes Over 2nd In CCR Top 130

September 8, 2019 by CFP Staff

LSU maintains the No. 1 spot in the latest Congrove Computer Rankings (CCR Top 130), released Sunday morning within minutes of the conclusion of the week's final game. Ohio State replaced Michigan at No. 2.

LSU was a 45-38 victor at Texas, and Ohio State routed Cincinnati 42-0 in Columbus.

Michigan, last week's No. 2 team, fell to 5th after needing double-OT to avoid the upset loss to Army and top the Black Knights 24-21 in Ann Arbor. That left room for Clemson to rise from 5th to 3rd, jumping over Georgia which remains No. 4.

Alabama, Notre Dame and Auburn stay put at 6, 7 and 8, respectively. Michigan State rose form 11th to 9th, leapfrogging Oklahoma at No. 10.

Four teams fell out of the Top 25. Texas plummeted from 21 to 30, and Stanford descended from 18th to 32nd after losing 45-20 at USC. Syracuse fell 22 spots from 12th to 34th on the heels of a 63-20 drubbing at Maryland, and Washington crash-landed at No. 39 after being ranked 24th a week ago.

The four new entrants in the Top 25 are Kentucky (29 to 25), Baylor (30-to-23), Virginia (26-to-22), and Northwestern (27-20).
