Kris Frost and company hope to move Auburn back up the standings

AUBURN, Ala.  Auburn slipped in the College Football Playoff standings Tuesday night, but the Tigers know winning would send them back up the ranking ladder.

The Tigers fell from No. 3 to No. 9 in the standings after losing to Texas A&M 41-38, and will now look to move up the rankings against Georgia, Samford and Alabama to close out the regular season. The Tigers are at No. 15 Georgia for a 6:15 p.m. Central game Saturday on ESPN. 

Auburn is the highest ranked two-loss team.

Auburn defensive lineman Gabe Wright says the Tigers aren't thinking about standings, just winning. The rest would take care of itself.

"The main focus is to beat Georgia. I can promise you that," he said. "If we're blessed enough to get that, then we'll be right that way. To get to that point, we'll have to take care of business this week."

The new Top 4 is Mississippi State, Oregon, Florida State and TCU. The Top 4 teams on Dec. 7 will qualify for the championship playoffs.

Auburn can score points in the standings if it beats 15th-ranked Georgia and No. 5 Alabama. 

The College Football Playoff standings are here.

Auburn was also ranked No. 9 in both the coaches and Associated Press polls on Sunday.
