Louisville falls to No. 11 in new College Football Playoff Rankings

Following their 36-10 loss to Houston, the Louisville football team was dropped six spots from No. 5 to No. 11 in the latest College Football Playoff Rankings. The Cards also sit at No. 11 in both the coaches and AP polls.

Alabama once again topped the rankings, followed by No. 2 Ohio State, No. 3 Michigan (convenient) and No. 4 Clemson. Washington and Wisconsin are the first two teams on the outside looking in,

Also of note for Louisville is the fact that Florida State now sits at No. 14. The Seminoles would need to jump over the Cardinals in order to potentially earn a bid to the Orange Bowl. Even if FSU topples No. 15 Florida and U of L struggles with Kentucky, it would be an awfully hard sell for the committee to put a three-loss team ahead of a two-loss team that beat it head-to-head by 43 points.
