ESPN updates college football power rankings after championship week

Not every team had a chance to play in Week 14, and some who did play have to wish they hadn’t.

Looking at you, USC.

While the Trojans made an untimely exit out of College Football Playoff consideration thanks to a second loss to Utah, Ohio State sat home and waited its way in. TCU also lost, albeit in overtime, and is likely to remain in, regardless. Michigan football and Georgia rolled in their respective conference championship games, thus cementing themselves as the top two teams in the country.
