What CFP rankings would look like after Week 6: There's a new No. 1

Week 6 of college football was loaded with great games.

Through the the first half of the season, what excites me the most about the game this year is the depth of elite teams.

 Whether it be Georgia, Ohio State, Alabama, Michigan, Clemson, Tennessee, USC or even Oklahoma State…

I could legitimately see any of those teams putting up a fight in the four-team College Football Playoff.

Right now, national championship odds, courtesy of BetMGM, are: Ohio State (plus-175), Georgia (plus-250),

Alabama (plus-250), Clemson (plus-1100), Michigan (plus-2000), USC (plus-2000), Tennessee (plus-4000), UCLAs (plus-5000) and Oklahoma State (plus-6600).

Though the first round of College Football Playoff rankings are not released until Nov. 1,

 I tried to think like a member of the committee and projected what the CFP rankings would look like if it were released today.
