Top 5 Unchanged in CCR Top 130; Michigan Jumps To 7th

November 24, 2019 by Staff

There was very little movement across the board in the top 25 of the Congrove Computer Rankings, released Sunday morning. The top 5 held their positions while upset loser Oregon dropped from 6th to 10th, and Michigan surged from 10th to 7th.

Ohio State is still the computers No. 1 team with Clemson in 2nd. The SEC holds the next 3 spots with LSU 3rd, Alabama 4th and Georgia 5th.

Penn State's loss to Ohio State caused the Nittany Lions to slide only 3 places, from 8th to 11th.

Last week, the Buckeyes had a lead of 6.96 points over Clemson and 8.1 points over LSU. That lead diminished only slightly as Ohio State now has a 6.29-point edge on Clemson and an 8.29-point lad on LSU.

Texas A&M, SMU and Indiana dropped out of the top 25. The Aggies backtracked from 21st to 26th after their 19-13 loss at Georgia; the Mustangs went from 23rd to 31st after a 35-28 loss at Navy; the Hoosiers dropped from 24th to 33rd after a 39-14 loss at home to Michigan.

The Big Ten has the most members in the Top 25 with six, followed by the SEC with five. The ACC and Big 12 each have three, while the American, the PAC-12 and the Sun Belt have two apiece. The Mountain West and each have one. Notre Dame is the lone independent program in the Top 25.

UMass (1-11) is the best of the worst for the 11th time this season. The Minutemen were 56-24 losers at home to BYU.
