After overcoming tough games against unranked opponents, the top four teams in the College Football Playoff rankings remained the same Tuesday night, while LSU stayed one spot ahead of USC at No. 5.
Georgia led off the CFP selection committee's rankings for the third straight week, followed by Ohio State at No. 2, Michigan at No. 3 and TCU at No. 4. The Buckeyes and Wolverines, who play this coming Saturday in Columbus, both trailed in the second half last week before keeping their undefeated records intact. Michigan and TCU both needed go-ahead field goals in the final minute to hold off Illinois and Baylor, respectively.
