2021 CFB Top-25 Week 11

Written By Michael Thomas

11/9/21 – Week 11 CFB Top-25

The Bearcats, who needed two goal-line stands in the final minutes to pull out a 28-20 victory against Tulsa at home on Saturday, are the highest-ranked team ever from a Group of Five conference. Unbeaten Cincinnati was hoping to be in the top four last week, but it has struggled to beat lesser opponents in each of its past three games. The overall strength of its conference — there isn’t another AAC in the top 25 for the second straight week — is also hurting its CFP chances.

No. 21 Pitt moved up four spots and No. 11 Texas A&M and No. 16 NC State each jumped three spots. Along with Michigan State, No. 17 Auburn fell four spots and No. 12 Wake Forest dropped three.

No. 19 Purdue, No. 23 UTSA, No. 24 Utah and No. 25 Arkansas are new to the rankings, while Mississippi State, Kentucky, Minnesota and Fresno State fell out.
