Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Michigan Latest Quartet in College Football Playoff Rankings

Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Michigan Latest Quartet in College Football Playoff Rankings

The top five: Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Michigan and Georgia. Since the SEC champion, in this case No. 1 Alabama, is in a semifinal, the Sugar Bowl would get the next-highest-ranked SEC team, which is No. 5 Georgia.

The playoff picture cleared up after a weekend where several contenders asserted themselves.

According to ESPN's Football Power Index, there is just a 9 percent chance that the top four teams in the CFP rankings will all win out.

LSU dropped to #7 following its heartbreaking 29-0 loss to Alabama this past weekend.

OU was seventh last week in the initial rankings but jumped one spot after previous-No.

Also, Michigan State went from unranked to No. 18 after beating a Maryland team that is a mess and is just 5-4. Could the SEC get two teams in that scenario? Yes.

College GameDay will be in town for the matchup, which will kick off at 8 p.m. on ABC. In each of the 11 weeks, at least two teams were eliminated, including two - Kentucky and LSU - in Week 10.

It's a very bad fire", Officer Ryan Lambert of the California Highway Patrol said of the evacuation. Flames consume a auto and building as the Camp Fire tears through Paradise, Calif., today.

The question here is, while it's true you can only defeat the teams on your schedule, does that mean a team you previously defeated should always be ranked behind you? And if Texas were to earn a spot in the conference title game, it tragically would be at OU's expense. "Bottom line is pretty much every team that's in there, if they win, they are in, because a lot of them are going to play each other". West Virginia 10. Ohio State 11. The loss of that game, should it have been a WVU win, might have been a difference in one or two slots in this week's rankings.

Alabama and Georgia, who played in last year's College Football Playoff Championship in Atlanta, are headed for a rematch at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on December 1 in the SEC title game. When it comes to wins, West Virginia has a win over No. 19 Texas; Washington State hasn't beaten a team now in the rankings, though it may have a chance against a ranked Washington team to end the regular season.

Alabama (SEC West) and Georgia (SEC East) have.

The weather did the Mountaineers no favor by forcing the cancellation of West Virginia's game at North Carolina State in September.
