CFP Poll, Week 2: What It Means For The Russell Athletic Bowl

The second set of the Top 25 rankings decided by the College Football Playoff selection committee was released Tuesday night. 

Here are the committee’s Top 25 teams decided after Week 10:

1.       Mississippi State

2.       Florida State

3.       Auburn

4.       Oregon

5.       Alabama

6.       TCU

7.       Kansas State

8.       Michigan State

9.       Arizona State

10.   Notre Dame

11.   Ole Miss

12.   Baylor

13.   Nebraska

14.   Ohio State

15.   Oklahoma

16.   LSU

17.   Utah

18.   UCLA

19.   Arizona

20.   Georgia

21.   Clemson

22.   Duke

23.   West Virginia

24.   Georgia Tech

25.   Wisconsin

You can get a better understanding of how the committee ranks teams with a couple of helpful breakdowns:one from BusinessInsider and another from Sports On Earth.

The Russell Athletic Bowl receives the first ACC pick after the College Football Playoff series of games and the second Big 12 pick after the CFP and the Valero Alamo Bowl.  If the season ended today, the Russell Athletic Bowl could potentially host No. 22 Duke or No. 24 Georgia Tech from the ACC and No. 15 Oklahoma or No. 23 West Virginia from the Big 12.

Louisville was replaced by Georgia Tech from last week’s Russell Athletic Bowl potential matchups.   If Georgia Tech played Oklahoma, this would be the first time in both team histories they go head to head.  If Georgia Tech played West Virginia it would be the fourth time overall and the first since 2007.
