In each of the first four years of the College Football Playoff, Week 11 was cruel to top-10 teams. That wasn't the case in 2018, and as a result, the top 10 of the College Football Playoff Rankings may not change.
Two of the four HERO Sports predictors are guessing that the Week 12 rankings will be the first in which none of the top 10 teams change from the previous week's rankings. All top-10 teams were in action in Week 11, but none of those teams lost, nor did any team in the top 15.
Ben Fox is predicting Washington State, despite a road win over Colorado, will fall one spot below Ohio State, who beat Michigan State, and Jim Oxley, is predicting Ohio State will fall to No. 10 and Washington State will jump West Virginia .
