Top Four Remain Unchanged In Playoff Selection Committee Rankings

Alabaman, Oregon, Florida State, and Mississippi State all remained in the top four of the College Football Playoff Selection Committee's rankings after wins on Saturday. Here's the full rankings:

1) Alabama Crimson Tide, SEC

2) Oregon Ducks, Pac-12

3) Florida State Seminoles, ACC

4) Mississippi State Bulldogs, SEC

5) TCU Horned Frogs, Big 12

6) Ohio State Buckeyes, Big Ten

7) Baylor Bears, Big 12

8 ) UCLA Bruins, Pac-12

9) Georgia Bulldogs, SEC

10) Michigan State Spartans, Big Ten

11) Arizona Wildcats, Pac-12

12) Kansas State Wildcats, Big 12

13) Arizona State Sun Devils, Pac-12

14) Wisconsin Badgers, Big Ten

15) Auburn Tigers, SEC

16) Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, ACC

17) Missouri Tigers, SEC

18) Minnesota Golden Gophers, Big Ten

19) Ole Miss Rebels, SEC

20) Oklahoma Sooners, Big 12

21) Clemson Tigers, ACC

22) Louisville Cardinals, ACC

23) Boise State Broncos, Mountain West

24) Marshall Thundering Herd, Conference USA

25) Utah Utes, Pac-12

The biggest takeaway here is that TCU remained in front of Ohio State and Baylor, but still trail Mississippi State for the final playoff spot. UCLA jumped to No. 8 in the rankings - the highest of any two loss team - after beating USC, and Minnesota moved from No. 25 to No. 18 after beating Nebraska.

Ole Miss had the biggest drop of the week, falling from No. 8 to No. 19 after losing 30-0 to Arkansas.

However, the biggest loser is Marshall, who is behind Boise State despite being undefeated. This is important because the highest ranked team that's not in a Power 5 Conference gets a bid to one of the six New Year's bowls, which are the most lucrative.
