Alabama and Miami took massive hits after devastating losses. At the same time Wisconsin, Clemson and Oklahoma all cemented themselves as the most elite teams in the country.

It’s interesting to note that in the Coaches Poll Wisconsin got the second most first place votes, but is stuck at number three. That means voters are very split on them. Coaches either view them as the best team in America or not even in the top five.

The next college football playoff rankings will be released Tuesday night, and then we’ll have our clearest picture yet as to whose ticket is getting punched.
