College Football Playoff Rankings: Toledo drops out, Navy highest-ranked from Group of 5

After falling to Northern Illinois, the Toledo Rockets slip out of the Playoff rankings.

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

The Toledo Rockets ended their undefeated season last week against the Northern Illinois Huskies. As expected, the Rockets, ranked no. 24 in last week's rankings.

Memphis was the highest-ranked G5 team in the first rankings and they lost their game against Navy to move them down to No. 21 with the Midshipmen to move into the rankings at No. 20. Temple won 60-40 over SMU; Houston is the last G5 team that's undefeated and will play against Memphis this weekend.

Toledo looks to redeem themselves tonight at 8 p.m. against Central Michigan. The team can certainly need some help from other teams, but the Rockets can still win the MAC West and the MAC Championship game, and would be an impressive 4-game stretch.
