With major upsets throughout college football on Saturday, the College Football Playoff rankings were bound for a shake up.
After losses by Georgia and Notre Dame, Alabama (10-0) has moved to the top of the rankings for the first time this year. Clemson (9-1), originally ranked #4, made its way to #2. In the last two seasons, the Crimson Tide and Tigers have finished #1 or #2 in the rankings on Selection Sunday. They also have played each other in the last two national championships, each program winning once.
Joining them in the Top 4 are Miami (9-0), who rank #3 after a blowout victory over previous #3 Notre Dame, and Oklahoma (9-1), who beat TCU in a huge Big 12 clash.

These rankings will likely change come Selection Sunday. That’s because Clemson and Miami will meet in the ACC Championship game. Not only that, but any of these teams could lose at any time. Alabama, for example, still needs to beat #6 Auburn to even make the SEC Championship game.
We have three weekends to decide who’s in and who’s out. Buckle up, folks.
