Eight ranked teams lost after the initial College Football Playoff rankings, so there are bound to be changes in Week 11. Before the CFP committee unveils the rankings on Tuesday, I predict where the top 25 teams will land.
The second of six CFP top 25 reveals happens on Tuesday, Nov. 7 (here’s the full schedule). Ahead of the announcement, here’s a prediction of how the committee could rank its top 25 teams. Note that these are my predictions and mine alone. I take a look at head-to-head results, schedule strength, games against ranked teams and more to help rank the teams how I think the CFP committee will do so. You can read the CFP committee’s official protocols here.
These predictions are as of Sunday, Nov. 5. 
New teams: Liberty, North Carolina
Teams to drop out: Kansas State (23), Air Force (25)

Does Ohio State drop after its slow start to Rutgers?
Ohio State looked the worst of last week’s top three teams, trailing to an unranked Rutgers team at halftime. Will that be enough to drop the Buckeyes from the top spot, even with a win? Georgia hopes a ranked win can get it back to the top, while Ohio State’s rival Michigan will always think it should be above the Buckeyes.

How will the committee sort the two-loss teams?
Expect eight two-loss teams in Week 11’s College Football Playoff rankings. Where each team will land remains to be seen. While the reasoning in the top 10 of last week’s rankings was clear, the latter part of the rankings created confusion. Did the committee value head-to-head wins, ranked wins, or something else? We’ll see what the committee values more in Week 11 with even more teams neck-and-neck.
