CFB TOP 25 RANKINGS
We have updated the CFB top 25 rankings and were able to watch all of the top 25 teams that played over the weekend. Given the Big Ten kicks off in week eight of the 2020 college football season and the PAC-12 will not begin until week ten, we felt it was only fair to rank teams we were able to observe on the field of play. Only Penn State and Ohio State remained in our CFB top 25 rankings, after going through extensive roster research for the 2021 NFL Draft and college football awards.

AP TOP 25 WEEK 6 POLITICAL AGENDA, CFB PLAYOFF PREDICTION & ANALYSIS
UPDATED CFB RANKINGS
In our newly updated CFB rankings, we felt that Alabama looked the best in week five of the 2020 college football season and were able to answer many questions we had prior to kickoff of the SEC football season. Yes, Clemson moved to 3-0 and has beaten (1-2) Wake Forest, whose only win came yesterday against FCS opponent Campbell (0-4) and beat (0-3) The Citadel 49-0, but the Virginia game was much closer than expected. Virginia moved to 1-1 on the 2020 college football season and their first win was against another 0-4 team in the Duke Blue Devils by a score of 38-20. When observing the Clemson vs Virginia game from start to finish and the Alabama vs Texas A&M game, I got to see a much more prepared team in the Crimson-Tide. The Aggies were ranked 13th in both the AP top 25 and the College Football Today FBS top 25 with their one win coming against Vanderbilt, who was massacred this past weekend by the LSU Tigers 41-7. Alabama also played well in their season opener against SEC opponent Missouri and were able to win on the road 38-19. Arguably, Virginia should be in the top 25, as they played Clemson extremely well and we believe the Miami game this coming weekend will be a true test to where the Tigers sit in our CFB top 25. When evaluating the current strength of schedule of both Alabama and Clemson, the Tide simply have handily beaten much better opponents in Missouri and Texas A&M. The combined records of the teams Clemson has beaten is 1-8 and it was clear that Alabama QB Mac Jones was ready to take the reigns of the Crimson-Tide offense.
TOP 25 CFB RANKINGS
The Georgia Bulldogs are now ranked 3rd in our top 25 CFB rankings and displayed an epic defensive performance in their 27-6 win over Top 25 Auburn. The Tigers dropped to number 18 in our top 25 CFB poll and need to address the major issues up front, as they were simply manhandle in the trenches by the bulldogs. The stable of running backs they have on their 2020 roster all possess NFL Draft potential and are brutalizing downhill runners, who were able to help chew up yards and control the clock against the Auburn Tigers. Georgia Dawgs insider Blayne Gilmore wrote a great article on the Dawgs four work horse backs, that includes 2021 NFL Draft RB prospect Zamir White, James Cook, Kendall Milton and Kenny McIntosh that vividly described what we witnessed in the thrashing of the Auburn Tigers defense. Junior Quarterback Stetson Bennett replaced highly touted QB Dwan Mathis in week one and has since been a highly efficient passer for the Dawgs, as he has an outstanding 148.7 QB rating through the first two games of SEC play. Offensive Center Trey Hill and the rest of the Georgia offensive line provided a massive push up front in the running game and left Bennett unscathed in the pocket. On the flip side, Nose Tackle Jordan Davis wreaked havoc on Auburn's interior line and required a double-team, which left Georgia's highly touted linebackers and edge rushers unblocked or in one on one match-ups all night long. Nakobe Dean graded out as a top ten College Football Today 2019 LB recruit and has a relentless motor, as well as an outstanding corp group of linebackers in Monty Rice, Jermaine Johnson and Azeez Ojulari. The Dawgs are also heavily stocked with NFL Draft talent in the defensive backfield and were draped all over the Auburn receivers, as the Dawgs devoured Auburn up front and had Bo Nix running for his life for four quarters. College Football Today Top 10 WR recruit George Pickens will be one of the most sought after wide receivers when he decides to declare for the NFL Draft and the Tigers could not stop Kearis Jackson, who had 147 yards receiving on the night.

CFB TOP 25 WEEK 5
The CFB top 25 in week 5 arguably should have Georgia in the number 2 slot, but we still remember that South Carolina game from last season and are looking forward to watching them take on 8th ranked Tennessee this weekend. The following week, College Football Today will be making the trip to Tuscaloosa to watch Kirby Smart take on his former boss Nick Saban, as both teams look to solidify their spot in the College Football Playoff. Ohio State is now ranked fourth in our CFB top 25 week 5 poll and we are extremely eager to watch the Buckeyes highly potent offense take flight under top 2021 NFL Draft QB prospect Justin Fields, who graded out as the number one overall 2021 QB prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft QB prospect rankings on RokFin.
