Notre Dame Remains No

Texas sneaks into top 15 in latest College Football Playoff rankings

During the reveal of tonight's College Football Playoff rankings, ESPN's panel of experts broke down the top-10 teams.

The SEC has six teams represented in the rankings, including Alabama, Georgia, LSU, No. 13 Florida, No. 17 Kentucky and No. 21 Mississippi State.

Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and MI remained the top four teams in that order. The Wolverines are the lone team of the group that was not in the initial top four rankings. Notre Dame was in the committee's top four for two weeks in both 2015 and 2017 before ultimately falling out.

Harvard scientists say Oumuamua may be probe sent by "alien civilization"
Its thickness should not be more than a millimetre, like a sail for it to be effective, as reported by The Indian Express . A paper set to be published by the chair of the Harvard astrophysics suggests such an explanation might be in order.

The chaos happened outside the top 10 among teams who didn't have a shot of sniffing the playoff anyway. It is the first time that the order of the top 10 remains the same from one week to the next.

Notre Dame is the lone top 10 team set to face another top 25 program this weekend with the Irish headed to NY to face No. 12 Syracuse in Yankee Stadium. The Irish could make the case the committee can't put the Wolverines in and leave out the one team that beat them.

Big 12 fans will disagree, but MI at 12-1 looks like a good bet to sail into the playoff - especially if Notre Dame finishes unbeaten, therefore making the Wolverines' only loss a one-score game in the opener at South Bend. Notre Dame - 10-0 4. MI - 9-1 5. Oklahoma - 9-1 7. It's not as if Alabama would have a loaded resume, with victories against LSU, Mississippi State and Auburn at the top. West Virginia - 8-1 10. Last year it was Alabama and the year before, Ohio State got there. Florida - 7-3 14. Texas 16. Iowa State 17. Utah 20. Boston College 21.
