Twitter reacts to UCF jumping Ohio State in latest CFP rankings

If Texas wins, it will face the victor of No. 6 Oklahoma and No. 13 West Virginia.

UCF became the first team from a Group of 5 conference to crack the top 10 in the College Football Playoff rankings, moving up two spots to No. 9 in the latest poll released Tuesday evening. Georgia Tech will need to build success early on with the running game if they want a chance to pull off the upset, but with a rivalry and bragging rights on the line, do not be shocked if the Yellow Jackets try to incorporate the passing game more to catch Georgia off guard. Those rankings will determine the four semifinalists along with the teams participating in the remainder of the New Year's Six bowl games. If Ohio State wins Saturday against MI and its top-ranked defense, that will immediately become the most impressive victory on the Buckeyes' résumé.

On Dec. 1 the Knights will host the American Athletic Conference Championship game at home, playing either Memphis or Houston.

The final week of the regular season has spelled disaster for Alabama in 2013, Baylor in 2015 and Mississippi State in 2014 when it seemed like their national championship hopes were stripped away in the final weekend of the season. Expect the victor of this game to move up around four to six spots in rankings next week.

This is the fourth week that Notre Dame has been in the rankings, its longest mark after being ranked for just two weeks in 2015 and two weeks in 2017. The less cynical would say UCF's schedule, not as rigorous as the other top teams, would deservedly keep the Knights out even if the alternative is teams that have lost two or even three games. Georgia 6. Oklahoma 7. These tough matchups for all of the teams in the top 10 will help give the committee and college football fans the best indication of what teams deserve to be in the Playoff and which do not.
