College Football Playoff rankings, Round 2: Georgia stays No. 1

ATHENS – It was early evening at the Georgia football facility, and the second edition of the College Football Playoff rankings were about to be released. But senior cornerback Aaron Davis didn’t sound like he cared much.

“It’s definitely not on my mind. I don’t think it’s on anyone else on the team’s mind,” Davis said. “There’s this week. There’s two more weeks. It’s going to change.”

But it didn’t change this week: Georgia is still No. 1.

The playoff selection committee held steady for a second straight week, despite Alabama being No. 1 in the traditional polls (Associated Press and coaches). Georgia was No. 1 on the strength of its win at Notre Dame the second week of the season.

Entering Tuesday night’s rankings show, there was little expectation that Georgia and Alabama would switch spots. They were both coming off 24-10 wins over six-win teams.
