Week 14 College Football Rankings: Eagles Miss Last Chance


Boston College had a chance to completely alter the Week 14 college football rankings, as well as the rest of the 2014 season, but that opportunity passed.

As it has been, the Florida State Seminoles are number one in the media polls, but not the College Football Playoff poll, which happens to mean more. Regardless, had the Eagles pulled off the upset on Saturday, the course of the season would have changed.

It was not to be, and the Seminoles remain at the top of our own poll as we enter the final week of the regular season within the Atlantic Coast Conference. Who joins FSU at the top?

Week 14 College Football Rankings: Sayonara

We have ejected Nebraska, USC, Utah, and Duke from our rankings after their losses.

Florida State did not have great “game control” against Boston College, and nobody should be surprised if the committee drops them to fourth in Tuesday’s College Football Playoff rankings. We’ve eliminated one system with seemingly ludicrous criteria, and replaced it with another system with ludicrous criteria that nobody understands.
