Alabama dropped seven spots from #5 to #12 in Tuesday's College Football Playoff rankings. When asked why, playoff committee chairman Rob Mullens explained...
Head-to-head is certainly a key part of it. It also matters what happens around you.
Alabama, their only two losses are to a No. 2 and a No. 11 team. However, they only have two wins over Power 5 teams with winning records, both Texas A&M and Tennessee, who are 7-5.
When you look at Auburn, obviously they have the head-to-head. They also beat the No. 13 team. Close losses to No. 2 and No. 4.
Specifically when you look at those two, the head-to-head probably did carry the day at the end of the day.
