College football rankings: Week 14, 2021

By Kevin Kelley -

College football rankings for week 14 of the 2021 season have been released and the Michigan Wolverines have moved up to second.

Michigan (11-1) moved up four spots to No. 2 in the AP Poll following their impressive 42-27 win over the second-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes (10-2). The Wolverines also moved up three spots in the Coaches Poll to No. 3.

Ohio State dropped down to No. 7 in both the AP Poll and Coaches Poll and are seemingly out of contention for a spot in the College Football Playoff.

The Alabama Crimson Tide (11-1) defeated the Auburn Tigers 24-22 in four overtimes on Saturday, but dropped one spot to No. 4 in the AP Poll. The Crimson Tide remained No. 2 in the Coaches Poll.

The Georgia Bulldogs (12-0) remain number one in both polls for the eighth consecutive week. The Cincinnati Bearcats (12-0) are ranked third in the AP Poll and fourth in the Coaches Poll.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys (11-1) and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (11-1) are just outside the top four at No. 5 and No. 6 in both polls, respectively.

UTSA and Wisconsin dropped out of both polls following losses this weekend.
