West Virginia didn't get as much bounce as it expected, or should have received, in the latest College Football Playoff rankings after its win on the road over ranked Texas.

Prior to Saturday's win, Syracuse entered the week ranked No. 19 in the playoff rankings and No. 22 in the AP Poll, the team's first ranking since 2001.

Texas (6-3, 4-2) and Iowa State (5-3, 4-2), who own wins over OU and West Virginia, respectively, are not yet out of Big 12 contention with two losses, but the Sooners and Mountaineers clearly have the inside track with three games to go.

Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and MI hold the top four spots in this week's rankings, followed by Georgia at No. 5. In a scenario where the Fighting Irish lose, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Notre Dame all would have similar one-loss resumes and be fighting for two spots.

The Rose Bowl Game Presented by Northwestern Mutual is a contract bowl and historically guarantees the Big Ten champ against the Pac-12 champ. Georgia is the second highest-ranked one-loss team after MI. The Buckeyes would face No. 8 Washington State, the projected Pac-12 champ.
