College Football Playoff Rankings reactions: Alabama overrated, USC underrated in latest top 25

The college football action in Week 12 featured a wild slate with each of the top four teams in the country struggling to pick up wins. Did that shake up this week’s edition of the College Football Playoff Rankings? Not really. The top four remained the same with Georgia at No. 1, Ohio State at No. 2, Michigan at No. 3 and TCU in at No. 4 after its walk-off win over Baylor.

Alabama struggled to beat Texas, Arkansas, Texas A&M and Ole Miss. That’s in addition to “good losses” to No. 5 LSU and No. 10 Tennessee, which CFP selection committee chair Boo Corrigan referenced on the broadcast. “Game control” is a metric that is often cited by the committee, and Alabama has struggled to control several games this year even in wins. The Crimson Tide are No. 7 because of brand recognition — nothing more and nothing less.

Underrated: USC

The Trojans have wins at No. 21 Oregon State and at No. 18 UCLA, the latter of which came in Week 12. Its one loss was a wild one-point defeat on the road to No. 14 Utah. Why,…
