Texas A&M Upsets No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Georgia Jumps to Top Spot

A stunner in College Station just threw a wrench in the college football playoff! Unranked Texas A&M shocked the world on Saturday with their upset of top-ranked Alabama courtesy of a walk-off field goal (41-38). That gives Georgia the No. 1 ranking for the first time since 1982 after their 34-10 blowout against No. 18 Auburn. Meanwhile, No. 3 Iowa held off No. 4 Penn State (23-20) in a top-five Big Ten showdown. There’s a massive ripple effect to the top-10 and the college football playoff picture. Not a single team stayed in the same spot after Saturday. Here’s where they stand:
