Nov. 16 (UPI) -- With just two weeks remaining in the 2021 regular season, the Georgia Bulldogs retained their top spot in the third edition of the College Football Playoff rankings, which were unveiled Tuesday.

The top seven teams -- Georgia, Alabama, Oregon, Ohio State, Cincinnati, Michigan and Michigan State -- all earned wins over the weekend, resulting in a mostly unchanged top 10.


The top-ranked Bulldogs improved to 10-0 with a 41-17 victory against Tennessee, which gave them a spotless 8-0 record in the Southeastern Conference for the first time in program history. No. 2 Alabama, meanwhile, defeated New Mexico State 59-3 at home Saturday.

The third-ranked Ducks remained one spot ahead of Ohio State. Cincinnati stayed at fifth, followed by Michigan (sixth) and Michigan State (seventh).

Notre Dame, which earned a 28-3 win against Virginia, climbed to No. 8. Oklahoma State was at No. 9 and Wake Forest in 10th.

Auburn and Purdue both fell out of the rankings after losses Saturday.
