Georgia tops first CFP poll of season

Here are the first four teams from every College Football Playoff release.

The 8-0 Crimson Tide came in at No. 2 in the first rankings released on Tuesday, with SEC rival Georgia just ahead at No. 1.

The good news for the Huskies now is there is precedent for teams initially ranked outside of the CFP top 10 to make a big move into the top four by the end of the regular season.

A nervy win over Penn State brought the Ohio State Buckeyes up to No. 3 in the AP Top 25 College Football Poll.

The top four in the rankings are: 1) Georgia, 2) Alabama, 3) Notre Dame, and 4) Clemson.

Of the 13 teams with fewer than two losses and at least an 8% chance of making the playoff, Alabama, Ohio State, and Georgia are all heavy favorites, with each being given a greater than 50-50 shot to be in the playoff.

Oklahoma edged Ohio State for the fifth spot, most likely by virtue of its early season win over the Buckeyes. You, too, Ohio State. Penn State stumbles from No. 2 to No. 6 after their one-point loss in The Horseshoe.

All have looked freshly, surprisingly good, even as none has looked as strong as Notre Dame.

Ohio State (7-1) was ranked No. 6 last week.

Then, at Nos. 9 and 10, the committee placed the latter two of the four Power Five unbeaten teams: No. 9 Wisconsin (8-0) and No. 10 Miami (Fla.) (7-0).

Oklahoma has its own Heisman contender - and two-time Heisman finalist - under center in Baker Mayfield, and it sustained its only loss against an uncharacteristically frisky Iowa State (6-2), ranked 15th.

The Fighting Irish (7-1) have not lost since, including blowouts of Michigan State, Southern California and North Carolina State. Alabama, Georgia, Wisconsin and Miami are the others. But that's why the committee has Georgia ahead of Bama in the first rankings.
