Maybe we should have one more game after next week’s national championship to see who plays TCU.

The Horned Frogs, left out of the College Football Playoff, are the No. 1 team in Jeff Sagarin’s latest rankings after their dismantling of Ole Miss. Sagarin’s rankings were included in the old BCS formula that was replaced by this year’s College Football Playoff.

TCU entered the final season ranked third but fell to sixth after beating Iowa State 55-3. Sagarin’s latest rankings were complied after Thursday’s games.

Oregon beat Florida State 59-20 and Ohio State stunned Alabama 42-35 to advance to the first College Football Playoff National Championship Jan. 12 at AT&T Stadium.

1. TCU

2. Ohio State

4. Alabama

5. Georgia

6. Michigan State

7. Baylor
