KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The second College Football Playoff poll dropped on Tuesday, and the Tennessee Vols came in at number five.

In last week’s poll, Tennessee was ranked No. 1. It was the first time they were in the top four of the CFB Playoff rankings since the era began in 2014.

Only the top four are eligible for the playoff games, so Tennessee is on the outside looking in.

The fall comes after their undefeated streak came to an end on Nov. 5, after Tennessee fell to Georgia, 27-13.

There are still three games left in the regular season with Tennessee taking on Missouri in the last home game on Saturday.
