After a Saturday of upsets -- five of the Top 10 teams in college football lost -- the latest edition of the College Football Playoff rankings were released Tuesday night.
Here is the new Top 25.

Texas A&M Aggies
After two straight losses, the Aggies plummeted all the way to No. 25. And with LSU in two weeks, there's a chance things get worse before they get better.

Quietly, David Shaw's club snuck back into the Top 25 after a dominant win over Oregon. At 7-3 though, the Cardinal are playing for nothing more than bowl positioning at this point.

After falling out of the Top 25 last week, the Gators are back in after beating South Carolina in Week 11. Don't be surprised if they're back out next week after traveling to LSU this weekend.

Washington State Cougars
Mike Leach's club is red-hot, with eight straight wins after an 0-2 start. Their next two games will reveal just how good they are, though, starting with Colorado this Saturday.

Western Michigan Broncos
What's P.J. Fleck's club got to do to get a little respect? Even after moving to 10-0 last week, they're still at No. 21 nationally and are no longer the highest Group of 5 team in the standings.

Boise State Broncos
Instead, that honor goes to Boise State at No. 20. But remember, it's the highest Group of 5 champ who gets a bid into one of the New Year's Six bowl games. As things stand, Boise is not in line to play for their conference title, let alone win it.
Butch Jones' boys are back, baby! Well not quite, but they could still win the SEC East if they win out and Florida loses to LSU this weekend. If that happens the Vols will head to Atlanta, where they couldn't possibly upset Alabama, could they?
(Don't answer that, Vols fans.)

The Cornhuskers quietly picked up a nice win last week against Minnesota. However, they still need a loss from Wisconsin to get back into not only the Big Ten title picture, but to be true playoff contenders as well.

Florida State Seminoles
Florida State just keeps winning and creeping up these rankings, but ultimately it doesn't matter. Pigs would have to fly, and dozens of upsets would have to happen (literally) for them to sniff the playoff.
Ed Orgeron's club bounced back nicely from a loss to Alabama with a victory over Arkansas last week, moving up eight spots to No. 16. While a playoff berth won't happen, they can finish the regular season in style with wins over Florida and Texas A&M in the coming weeks.

Like Texas A&M, the Tigers tumbled after last week's loss to Georgia. Auburn is now playing for nothing more than pride when they face Alabama in the Iron Bowl.

West Virginia Mountaineers
It probably isn't a good sign that Dana Holgorsen's club beat Texas and still got jumped by teams like USC. With that said, it doesn't matter. If they win out, they will be 11-1 and have a very compelling case to make the playoff, depending on what else happens around the country.
Hello, Clay Helton! The Trojans move up seven spots after stunning Washington in Seattle last weekend. They should go higher in the coming weeks, with winnable games over rivals UCLA and Notre Dame.
Kyle Whittingham's club is quietly lurking on the fringe of the playoff race. We'll find out whether they're really a contender or not when they face Colorado next week.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
Oklahoma State has won six in a row and is quietly on the fringes of the playoff picture. They'll need to win out, but if they do, they'll be Big 12 champs. But with two bad losses on their resume, would even being conference champ be enough for the committee?

Mike MacIntyre's club is one of the surprise stories of the college football season, but they've also lost their two biggest games (against USC and Michigan). We'll see what they're made of the next two weeks, as they face Washington State and Utah.
Are the Sooners a true playoff contender? It's too early to tell, but with West Virginia and Oklahoma State left on their schedule, Bob Stoops' club will get their chance to make a statement.

Penn State Nittany Lions
Penn State wrapped up a victory over Indiana early Saturday but became the big winner late, with Michigan's loss. Can the Nittany Lions make the playoff? Absolutely, but it starts by taking care of business the rest of the regular season, including a tough one against Michigan State two weeks from now.
With so much shake-up last week, Wisconsin is now in the thick of the playoff race. They should win the Big Ten West title. Can they beat Penn State, Ohio State or Michigan in the conference title game? Do that, and they just might end up in the Final Four.
The Huskies appear to be the biggest loser, falling from No. 4 to No. 6 in these polls. But remember, they still have Washington State and a Pac-12 title game matchup with Colorado or Utah remaining. They will have their chances to pick up quality wins and impress the pollsters.
Bobby Petrino's club is so close they can taste it! Still, unless Clemson loses this weekend, they won't get a shot at an ACC title. Meaning they would need quite a few losses ahead of them to get -- and stay -- in the Top 4.

Clemson looked to be in big danger after their loss last week to Pitt, but after all the dominoes fell, they ended up just fine. Win out, and they'll be in the playoff.
It's the same with Jim Harbaugh's club. With a game against Ohio State, and then (in theory) Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game, they have big games ahead. Win out, and they'll be playing New Year's Eve.

Ohio State Buckeyes
After back-to-back 62-3 thumpings, Ohio State moves all the way to No. 2. They should stay there next week before their showdown with Michigan in two weeks.
Alabama Crimson Tide
Three of the top five teams lost last week, and five of the top nine, and Alabama just keeps rolling. It's Saturdays like last week that make Nick Saban's run in Tuscaloosa that much more impressive and reason they are again No. 1 in the polls.
