College Football Top 128, Week of Sept. 20

The College Football Playoff landscape continues to shift, as Florida State becomes the latest victim to drop from the Top Four. Louisville’s destruction of the Seminoles places the Cardinals on the cusp of a playoff berth, though they’ll have to beat Clemson in two weeks to stay there. Oklahoma’s championship hopes are all but dashed after the Sooners’ loss at home to Ohio State. And Houston continues to solidify its standing at the top of the polls after an impressive close to its win over Cincinnati on Thursday.
