The top four teams in the College Football Playoff Rankings all survived difficult matchups on Saturday. But despite those struggles, No. 1 Georgia, No. 2 Ohio State, No. 3 Michigan and No. 4 TCU all came away with victories.

In the end, that’s all that mattered, as the top four stayed the same when the committee revealed its latest rankings on Tuesday. 

What was interesting was what happened next, as LSU moved up to No. 5 and USC to No. 6. It was a surprising development, as many thought the Trojans would leap past the Tigers after beating UCLA on Saturday.

See the latest edition of the rankings below, and watch here as RJ Young will react with a special live edition of his  podcast, “The Number One College Football Show.”
