This is the first time in the six-year history of the College Football Playoff Rankings that the Tigers were ranked No. 1.
The Buckeyes move to No. 2 with Clemson and Georgia moving from the first teams out of the field in the initial rankings to No. 3 and No. 4, respectively. These Tigers remain undefeated after obliterating NC State 55-10 last week, while the Bulldogs are the top-ranked one-loss team and are coming off a 27-0 win against Missouri. The Crimson Tide slot into the No. 5 spot and remain within striking distance of the playoff as their only loss is to top-ranked LSU.
Below is the complete College Football Playoff rankings.
