QUESTION: In its win over Georgia on Saturday, Auburn became the fifth team in four years to defeat the No. 1 team in the College Football Playoff ranking. Who were the others?


ANSWER: In 2014, Alabama knocked off Mississippi State 25-20 on Nov. 15 and eventually ascended to the top spot before losing its semifinal to Ohio State. A year later, the Crimson Tide downed top-ranked Clemson in the national championship only to have the Tigers return the favor last year. Auburn's 23-point win over Georgia created a larger margin of victory than the other four games combined.
