CFP Rankings: TCU gets due respect, Clemson crashes

With half of the college football playoff selection committee’s top six teams losing over the weekend, a shake-up on Tuesday was inevitable. We have it. This wasn’t a free fall, but we did see a series of significant drops for Tennessee, Alabama and Clemson that could have long-term implications.
