The College Football Playoff bestowed Georgia with the No. 1 ranking in their poll. I said in this space last week, not buying Georgia as the top dog. Alabama would beat them head-to-head, and the Tide should be No. 1. Well, I was right this time around. I kept the Tide at 1, and Georgia got crushed at Auburn. 

Four AP voters gave Miami the top spot in their rankings after they smoked Notre Dame. Slow down, 'Canes not with Alabama yet. Tide would be 14-point favorites if they met on the field. Two is a nice spot for Miami.

Also, fired up Army cracked my rankings. Always like to put focus on the non-Power 5 schools in my poll. The Cadets deserve this honor, and look primed to beat Navy back-to-back years.
