CFP Poll Week 2: What it means for the VRBO Citrus Bowl

After 10 weeks of action on the field, the College Football Playoff released its latest Top 25 poll Tuesday night.

Over at, we broke down the Nov. 6 College Football Playoff poll and what it could mean for the Camping World Bowl and VRBO Citrus Bowl this postseason.

As it relates to our SEC-Big Ten matchup specifically, it’s impossible to project anything with certainty right now, but the rankings give us a decent idea who could be available in our pick window.

Starting on New Year’s Day, the VRBO Citrus Bowl gets the first pick from both the SEC and Big Ten after the New Year’s Six bowls, and at this point, No. 18 Michigan State, No. 20 Penn State and No. 21 Iowa are the three highest-ranked Big Ten teams outside that CFP window.

All three teams will face tough home tests this weekend, with the Spartans hosting No. 10 Ohio State, the Nittany Lions hosting Wisconsin and the Hawkeyes hosting West division leader Northwestern — a trio of matchups that could cause some shuffling in the polls.

Shifting to the SEC, No. 15 Florida currently represents the conference’s highest-ranked team outside the CFP series, with Mississippi State right on the Gators’ tails at No. 16. However, the Bulldogs visit Alabama this Saturday, while Florida hosts South Carolina in Gainesville.
