Alabama is ranked fifth in the newest College Football Playoff Poll. The Tide did not fall in the rankings after its 38-7 victory over Mississippi State this past weekend. The injury to dynamic quarterback Tua Tagovailoa's injury caused many to wonder how the Playoff Committee would rank the Crimson Tide but for the moment Alabama remained ranked at five. The top four teams, LSU, Ohio State, Clemson and Georgia, remained the same from last week.  Minnesota dropped two spots after losing to Iowa this past weekend. Oklahoma jumped one spot after its come from behind victory over previously undefeated Baylor 34-31. Auburn fell to 15 after losing to Georgia this past weekend.
