Here are the rankings of the CFP Selection Committee for November 16th, ahead of Week 12 of the college football season.

The Georgia Bulldogs remain the undisputed No. 1 team in America, but everything else is filled with variables. Texas A&M lost badly to Mississippi on Saturday, but they still beat the No. 2 team in the country in Alabama. Meanwhile Cincinnati has run out undefeated while beating No. 8 Notre Dame on the road, but they’re still well behind the likely SEC West winner.

Oklahoma was also punished for their 27-14 loss to Baylor Saturday, falling all the way to No. 13 from No. 8. It seems pretty unlikely even if they win out that the Sooners could grab one of the four spots available.

Also Michigan is still ranked ahead of Michigan State despite the Spartans beating the Wolverines on the field.
