Week 2 of the CFP Rankings

1 Mississippi State8-0
2 Florida State8-0
3 Auburn7-1
4 Oregon8-1
Last week we took a look at the things that need to happen in order for Auburn to make the inaugural CFP. The single main focus is to keep winning. Is that enough?

Auburn's road victory didn't prove to be enough to move up in the CFP Poll, but it did earn a remark by Committee Chair Jeff Long. Long is also the Arkansas Athletic Director. His comment about Auburn? 

"There wasn't any discussion to move Auburn to second ahead of Florida State. Auburn is a solid 3rd with the committee."

The main topic of course, is who will the other participants be in the 1st ever College Football Playoff. The answer is very cloudy at the moment, what with tons of games yet to be played. 

Our main concern is Auburn, and the teams that remain on our schedule, so we will take a look at some of things that need to happen for Auburn to be a part of these playoffs.

Remaining games on Auburn's schedule are: 

11/08/14vs. Texas A&M TVAuburn2:30 p.m. CT
11/15/14at Georgia TVAthensTBA
11/22/14vs. Samford TVAuburnTBA
11/29/14at Alabama TVTuscaloosaTBA

Texas A & M is still just as much an enigma as they were last week. Knowing that the 2nd week is when we see the most improvement in QB's during their first season, we can surmise that the Aggies QB will be ready for his first road SEC start. At least somewhat. 

He'll be more ready for game speed  decisions. I don't think there is anyway he can be ready for awaits him at Jordan-Hare stadium. 

Georgia laid the proverbial egg in "The World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party" last Saturday when Florida gave the world a road map on how to take a bite out of the 'Dawgs. 

Auburn needs to just make sure they stay the course vs UGA.

Bama had a week off, so nothing has changed there. 

These teams need something to go their way, or there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
