Who cares how it looks? No team should be forced to stay where it is, or be forced to move in the rankings, if they are still where they should be.
Its clear that teams get slotted into tiers. As of a week ago OSU, LSU, and Bama were the top tier as far as the pollsters go. Like 8 AP points separated the teams or something wild like that. Bama lost and they fell to 4th in the ap and 5th in the cfp. But they also fell into the next tier down, they're now competing with georgia, oregon, minnesota moreso than osu/lsu. Clemson exists in its own "3rd place because they are undefeated and clearly talented but not playing up to potential".
OSU won and remains in its tier, the top 2. Nobody cares which team is 1 or 2 really, and if you do then get over it. OSU dropped a spot because we destroyed Maryland while the team directly below us beat the team directly below them. LSU has wins against better teams even if we have been more efficient and a more impressive team.
Bama losing in what ended up being a close game against a team the committee and voters already considered to be better than them? Why does bama need to fall far? Bama, Georgia, Oregon, Utah, Penn State, Oklahoma are all 1 loss teams. If the committee thought Bama was the 3rd best team last week, it'd be weird to me if after that performance they felt Bama was suddenly 10th or something.
