COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF STANDINGS: Georgia was the new No. 1 in the college football playoff standings, followed by Ohio State, Michigan and TCU.
The Bulldogs’ rise from No. 3 came as no surprise after their dominant victory against Tennessee on Saturday.
Clemson, which ranked fourth in the selection committee’s top rankings last week, also lost, making way for changes to the top four.
Ohio State was down to two. The Buckeyes’ Big Ten rival Michigan moved up from five to three. TCU jumped three spots to No. 4, putting the nation’s four undefeated teams at the top of the standings.
Tennessee fell to No. 5 and was followed by the Pac-12’s Oregon and LSU, which jumped three spots to seventh after the Tigers defeated Alabama.
Clemson dropped to 10th and Alabama dropped from sixth to ninth after its second loss of the season.
This is the first time since college football playoff qualifying began in 2014 that neither Clemson nor Alabama have been ranked in the top six.
There has never been a college football playoff without the Tigers and Crimson Tide, who have combined to win five of the eight CFP championships.
NEBRASKA: Starting safety Myles Farmer was suspended for Saturday’s game at No. 3 Michigan after receiving a ticket for suspected drunk driving last weekend.
Farmer, 21, was pulled over in downtown Lincoln around 12:30 a.m. Sunday for a traffic violation, police said Tuesday. The officer noted signs of deterioration and additional tests were performed.
The farmer’s blood alcohol content was measured at 0.123, police said. The legal limit in Nebraska is 0.08. He was cited for driving under the influence and not using a turn signal and was released.
CLEMSON: Coach Dabo Swinney is prepared to do whatever it takes to improve his offense, even if it means benching quarterback DJ Uiagalelei for more than a series or two.
Uiagalelei, a 6-foot-3, 235-pound junior, was eliminated from each of the last two games, the last a demoralizing 35-14 loss at No. 20 Notre Dame last week that ended the unbeaten start to the 12th classified. Tigres (8-1, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference).
Uiagalei will start this week at home against Louisville (6-3, 3-3), Swinney said, but if he can’t find form early this season, he won’t stick around.
“He has to play better and get back to normal. That is the reality of the situation,” Swinney said. “We have seen all the plays with him. If you don’t play better, someone else has a chance.
Vanderbilt: Athletic director Candice Lee said defensive backs coach Dan Jackson will “take a step back” from his job as the university continues an internal review of his recent social media comment defending the rapper formerly known as Kanye West.
