Asti’s Week 7 College Football Top 25 Rankings

Published

on

Huge games took place in Week 7 that will have an impact at the end of the season and in this week’s college football rankings.

The big winners this weekend were Tennessee, Michigan, TCU, Clemson and Utah.

Things will start taking shape soon nationally as the College Football Playoff rankings will be released in the near future.

Until we get those, here’s a look at my latest Top 25 rankings.

ASTI’S TOP 25 RANKINGS

  1. Georgia – Georgia hasn’t even been challenged, let alone even come close to losing, this season. They haven’t faced the test others have, but do have a win against a top 15 at the time of the game and no fear they will face quality opponents in the SEC before the season is over. They just have to be number 1 until there’s reason for them not to be.
    2) Ohio State – Ohio State’s big win to start the season over Notre Dame has certainly been exposed as nothing they can use on their resume, but the Buckeyes have been dominant and have so much talent that they would have a shot against anyone in the country, likely the best chance to beat Georgia. OSU vs. Michigan this year should be an absolute banger.
    3) Tennessee – At this point, everyone was buying into the Vols being good and not fool’s gold this season, but Hendon Hooker, Jalin Hyatt and company proved they are a legit national contender after knocking off Alabama. Can they keep it up is now the question? I’m not sure there fans can top that celebration even if they do go on and win the SEC or national championship.
    4) Michigan – In their first test all season after a pretty easy schedule that even saw them endure a close call, Michigan did what they needed to do to warrant a playoff spot – absolutely destroy Penn State, a top 10 team at the time. The Wolverines are now here due to having a bigger win on their resume than the team below them.
    5) Clemson – Even though they are just outside the top 4 right now for me, Clemson will likely get in the playoff if they win out and win the ACC. Fair or not, the committee will select them as a conference champ and bump out either Ohio State or Michigan, whoever loses to the other and does not end up playing for the Big Ten title.
    6) Alabama – Let’s be serious to anyone who wants Alabama dropped further. They lost to a top 3 team by a field goal in an instant classic on the road. They aren’t dead yet either…
    7) Ole Miss
    8) TCU
    9) Oregon
    10) Wake Forest
    11) UCLA
    12) Utah
    13) Syracuse
    14) Kansas State
    15) Oklahoma State
    16) USC
    17) North Carolina State
    18) Penn State
    19) Kentucky
    20) Texas
    21) Illinois
    22) North Carolina
    23) Cincinnati
    24) Mississippi State
    25) Purdue
