Four teams from the Group of Five (although, to be fair, they all hail from the American Athletic Conference) are included in the College Football Playoffs Top 25 rankings, with one team falling far, one team moving up, one team staying put, and one team moving in.
The Navy Midshipmen (#20), Memphis Tigers (#21), Temple Owls (#22) and Houston Cougars (#24) help to round-out the bottom half of the CFP's rankings, with a 23rd ranked North Carolina and a 25th ranked Wisconsin interrupting the G5 party.
Navy is the lone newcomer of the four, who earned the respect from the Committee after opening a can of whoopass on the Tigers, winning 45-20 in Memphis. And, sure, while it's weird to see Navy in the rankings because they've been so "ehhhhh" for so long, their 7-1 record proves they aren't that big a leap to join, with the lone loss coming against Notre Dame.
Memphis, on the other hand, still hangs in the rankings (granted, from going from 13th to completely out would have been a bit of an overreaction by the Committee), coming in eight spots below last week at #21 and have a chance to earn back a little respect this week, with an opportunity to hand the #24 Cougars their first loss of the season.
Poor Temple, just staying put at #22. Granted, playing (and rightfully beating) SMU won't do too much, and with the success Willie T. has had in South Florida, Temple might be #22 next week with a win, too.
If there's anything to learn here, you have two big options.
#1 - LOL Louisville.
#2 - Y no luv 4 Houston?
