How CFP rankings would look after Week 4: Georgia drops, Tennessee and Ohio State rise

Week 4 of the college football season featured plenty of big-time, exciting games between some of the top teams in the nation.

Though more difficult than Georgia would have liked, UGA beat Kent State, 39-22.

Alabama and Ohio State both rolled to victories. But results were somewhat more chaotic after that.

Michigan, Clemson, USC and Kentucky won close games.

Oklahoma lost to Kansas State and Arkansas lost to Texas A&M. In the headliner, Tennessee took down Florida in Knoxville, 38-33.

Though the first round of College Football Playoff rankings are not released until Nov. 1,

I tried to think like a member of the committee and projected what the CFP ranking would look like if it were released today.
