Georgia Remains in Top 4 of Brett McMurphy’s AP Top 25 Ballot

Despite Georgia’s loss to No. 1 Alabama, I kept Georgia No. 4 in my Associated Press Top 25 rankings this week.

In fact, because there was only one upset on Championship Saturday, 24 of my 25 teams remain the same as last week.

Fresno State, which upset Boise State to win the Mountain West title, moves into my Top 25 rankings at No. 21 replacing Northwestern. The Wildcats dropped out of my rankings after losing to Ohio State in the Big Ten title game.

My rankings are not a prediction on how I believe the College Football Playoff selection committee will rank its Top 25.

Here is my latest Associated Press Top 25 ballot through games of Dec. 1 (where I ranked each team last week in parenthesis):

1. Alabama (1)
2. Clemson (2)
3. Notre Dame (3)
4. Georgia (4)
5. Oklahoma (5)

6. Ohio State (6)
7. Michigan (7)
8. LSU (8)
9. UCF (10)
10. Washington (11)

11. Florida (12)
12. Washington State (13)
13. Penn State (15)
14. Kentucky (16)
15. West Virginia (17)

16. Texas (9)
17. Army (20)
18. Mississippi State (21)
19. Fresno State (NR)
20. Texas A&M (23)

21. Syracuse (24)
22. Utah (14)
23. Iowa State (22)
24. Missouri (25)
25. Boise State (19)
