Each week John Chancey and Marty Coleman list their top 5. Their rankings after week 9 are below.
Chancey says: Yes, I have dropped Cincinnati from my top five. Their best win against Notre Dame is better than Oklahoma’s best win against Texas, but I asked myself if I thought the Bearcats could beat the Sooners or the other four on a neutral field, and while I think they would stand a chance against a few of them, I wouldn’t consider them favorites in any of those contests. If Oklahoma wasn’t at their best, Cincy would beat them. Oklahoma at their best beats Cincinnati at their best. I am very curious to see where the CFP committee has the Bearcats ranked.
